When Fadi told:
"It’s ok, not my ideal job but, well it’s the family business so I have to be part of it really."
I think what He'd like better job and he feel with obligation because it's business of his family, but in Task 1 that interpretation result "False"

Hi Santiago,

Yes, I suppose you could argue that 'False' is also a correct answer for that question, though when he says that his job is 'OK', this suggests that Fadi is satisfied with his job, even though he also admits it's not ideal.

Does that make sense to you? It sounds to me as if you've understood what he says, which is the important thing.

Dear English Team,
in above text, could we write the last sentence as, hanging out with the people at the Tony' cafe?. my mean is could we put definate article (the) before Tony's cafe because the place is specific.

Hello Omer Gul,

When the name of a place includes a person's name (like 'Tony's Cafe'), the definite article is not used, so in this case no, you shouldn't say 'the Tony's Cafe'. See the explanation after the hotels, pubs and restaurants bullet (which also includes cafes) on our definite article page.

All the best,
