At (02:14) Stephen says, 'It's the same size. .......' Could you please fill some words I can't catch? Thank you very much.

Hello Aung Thet Naing,

He says "It's the same size - like, say, 'I'm as tall as you.'"

Best wishes,

The expression "as long as you take good care of it" meas the same than "as long as you take a good care of it"... I have listened the expression with article "a" in it...

Thanks !

PS Unscramble the words in brackets to give Christmas expressions - task 1 - does not resolve correctly the words starting by upper case, only all upper case or lower case letters are evaluated correctly

Hello MayelaM,

The expression 'take (good) care of' is a fixed expression and it is not used with 'a' in that way. It is possible to use the indefinite article with 'care' but only in other expressions such as 'have a care for' or 'not have a care in the world'.

Thanks for pointing out the capitalisation issue. Some phrases are capitalised in English, such as Christmas Eve, and these are now correct answers. Other phrases which are not normally capitalised in English need to be entered either entirely in lower case or entirely in upper case (for emphasis).

Best wishes,
