Hi everyone,

" How green are you ?" It's a great topic
First of all, I will join in community programs such as: planting of trees, calling everyone protect forest, wild animals, no littering public places, beaches, resorts,...The public transports I will be use train or Tube, ride a bicycle for my traveling everyday. It could be limited pollution problems that causes by smog from your cars, your motorbikes.
Let's use paper bags instead of plastic bags. Plastic bags is a kind of waste cannot self-destruct, It take about ten years for plastic bags complete disappear. One more pollution problems from factories; air, waste, sewage source must be solved by processing systems before they were carried place outside.

Finally, growing vegetable not toxic chemical. Excessive use of harmful chemical fertilizers will cause danger for human health and the environment.
I don't suppose being green is a waste of time, when you take part in some activities you will be have a lot of chances to study, to experience about community, the environment, the life on the earth..

Hello! I was wondering: how do English people say "zii"? I mean: in Italy when we want to talk about both uncle (male) and aunt (female), we use this word "zii". But how do you say in English? I tried to look on the vocabulary but I didn't find an answer, I only found uncle or aunt. Thank you very much.

Hello Alessandra,

I'm afraid in English we don't have one word to talk about both these relatives.  We have to say 'aunt and uncle' or, more usually with the names, 'Aunt Jenny and Uncle Dave'.

Best wishes,

im a new member
Series 01 Episode 10 , dont have support-pack please cheak it
thanke you

Hi monireh67,
You are correct that there is no support pack.  This is actually explained in the transcript - it is because this episode is made up of sections from earlier episodes and so the support packs from those episodes form the pack for this one.  If you open the transcript you will see full details.
Best wishes,

Thanks! I am able to finish this Series of episodes. I like to it very much. I am looking forward to continue the remaining episodes also. 

I have listened all the podcast of this first Serie and they were really amazing. I learned a lot and feel I have a very strong basis to go ahead with the next Series. My favorite joke was the one about the dog who could laugh, cry and read!
Thanks one more time for all your support.
