Surey, like I see, there's not any dobt about how interested is that girl in this kind of art.
Must to be fascinating to see in London some theatre about this type. How rich experience there was be, to present this art in the Middle East.

I think many fictional characters like Juliet are very similar in term of their determination. They are so determined that they have encouragement to fight against their families in pursuit of their true love.

I do not know a character like Juliet. Recently, a close teacher gave me a book called "Seda", and the protagonist is a brave woman, who decided to make a lie, to make her husband happier. I am mentioning this because she talks in the video about how feisty Juliet is, I think as much as the other character I am talking about.

At task 4, one of the prepositions seems showing differences between the video and text. When I use all prepositions from the list, I see that preposition “with” remains for the sentence below, hearing at the time of 3.54. I mean that Jade says “compared TO London” instead of “compared WITH London” while list forces me use “with”. It sounds the proposition TO is the right answer. Could you please check it? Thank you in advance.

Hello LearnEnglish2016,

You're right, of course: Jade says 'compared to' instead of 'compared with'. I've now changed the exercise so that it reflects what she says; please note that it may take a few hours for the change to come through on the website.

By the way, 'compared with' is also correct, but we still certainly appreciate you taking the time to tell us about this so that we could fix it.

Best wishes,
