Hello Karin Gäbel,

To move an answer into a gap, you have to click or press on it. Then click or press on the gap where you want it to go, and it will move there.

All the best,

Thank you so much

Hello All, how I can pass for next level? Thank you team!

Hello Lana Shcherbyna,

Although the materials on our site are tagged for level, they do not form courses as such and you can access any material which seems to you to be appropriately challenging. Learners progress at different rates in different areas, so sometimes a person might need more difficult grammar exercises but still have problems with even simple listening texts. Our advice is to work on material which is challenging for you but not frustrating.

If you have been working on certain materials on our site and would like some suggestions as to what you might try next then we'll be happy to advise, of course. Just let us know what you have been working on and what you would like to practise.


Best wishes,

This video was been much easier to understand than Camdem Scene 1, maybe that´s the reason for not have transcripts. However, I enjoy videos like Camdem Scene 1, it´s like a challenge in my way to improve my english skills, since that kind of videos use a more natural english, close to the english used for native speakers.

is it correct to say "What time do you start working?"


Hello mancini2,

Yes, you can say that. Using 'working' implies a focus on the actual action of working. If you're simply asking what time a person's workday begins, then 'work' would be better.

All the best,
