Episode 01: Fingers crossed

The old friends are gathering around in Tony's café to share some good news. But the café might be closing down soon!

Do the Preparation task first. Then listen to the audio. Next go to each Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

i didn't open the preparation, task2, task3. i didn't know why this is occured. i am glad that somebody helps me


Sorry to hear about your problem with the tasks. We know that a small number of users are having problems opening our exercises and it's something we're trying to fix.

If you could give us a bit more information, it would be very useful.

  • Were you able to open tasks in the past?
  • What appears instead of the task? An empty space or an error message?
  • Have you tried waiting three minutes for the task to open?
  • What web browser(s) are you using?

Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team
