Hello Biritish council team thanks for great videos , I have a question I hope you help me. thank you in advance. (task2-question1) 'why works in Hamburg' is wrong while the first part of the sentenc says 'Alex lives'

Hello parisaach

The present continuous form is correct here because Alex is working in Berlin for a temporary time (this summer). This is one common meaning that the present continuous can express -- see the Intermediate level section of our Present continuous page for more on this.

All the best
