Hello Sue Kehagias,

It is correct to use 'the' in this way, and missing it out would not be natural English.

For an example of 'the' used in a similar way, look here.

I want a great advice now....I have already listened to loads of audio files so far you know what...I have started from learn English teens audio files all of them and I have ranked audio files in this section I have started from Elementary pod-casts Tess&Ravi to Big city small world to words on street....I think it is a big stuff....My question is should I continue to the rest of These... or there is something else I should concentrate on???....Thanks

Hello ahmedjoker,

I'm afraid I can't give any concrete advice about what to do next as I don't know enough about your English and your needs. My advice, therefore, is to think about what you need English for, and what you think you need to work on (your needs, your weaknesses and so on) and to concentrate on these. That may lead you to work on grammar, for example, or Business English, but you will need to decide for yourself.

"What reactions do you get to being dressed up". TO BEING. Sorry, shame on me but this is the first time I've read this two words in a case like that. Is "to BE" incorrect? thanks a lot. I found this clip really interesting, clear pronounciation and full of cultural contents !


Yes, this is a possible form and 'to be' wouldn't work in that sentence. You get reactions to something and 'being dressed up' is a gerund phrase, which is acting as a noun phrase.

it is very inconvenient when student has to download every video to study.

Is there Any future plans to make a ipad version of the task (which doesn't read flash)?

Hello paolopagotto,

Yes, we are currently working on this and hope to resolve it soon, though I can't make any promises on when it will be!
