Task 2

Comprehension Task 2

Read the questions and select the right answers.



Language level

Intermediate: B1


Thank you for your checking. however, I still have the same problem with both exercises. I still see a white box that contains only "Comprehension Task
Read the questions and select the correct answers," but nothing else.
In the active and passive exercise, I can not see "begin" within the options to choose whether it is active or passive. I tried to access them through a different device and I used Mozilla firefox to open this site.
Many thanks for all the team.

Hello NA7,

Some users have indicated problems when using Firefox to access the site. Please try a different browser, such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer, to see if this helps.

We are working on this issue to see if there is anything we can do.

in the task 1, it says: Read the questions and select the right answers. however, the box of the task has nothing in it except this phrase. Could you check this task please?

Hello NA7,

I have checked the task and it is working correctly - I can see Yes/No buttons for each question.

I notice that this is the second comment you have posted about a task not working, so I suspect there is a compatibility issue with your device and our system. You could check this by accessing the site via a different device to see if that solves the problem. If you can, please try this, and let us know the results.

once when an oceanography student and i strolled on the seashore in germany rain fell in the sea coming towards us and it was petrifying.

Hi teacher, May I ask you why in the phrase "This may look like Paris" Stephen doesn't say "This may LOOKS like Paris"? Is that because of modal verb "may"? By the way, could I also say "This might look like Paris"?
Thanks in advance :)

Hello Sonia,

That's right - modal verbs like 'may' are followed by the base form of the verb, i.e. the infinitive without 'to'. And yes, 'might' can also be used here with the same meaning.

All the best,

Thanks a lot, Kirk!
