Hello lellablu,

No, that's not correct. 'each other' is needed in the sentence because 'see' is a transitive verb, i.e. it requires an object. You could use a different object, e.g. 'I haven't seen you in some time', but of course the meaning is slightly different.

hi everyone, I'd like to chat with Olivia and Sara in BCSW...... but I don't know how to.
Anybody could help me, please?

Hello tonyo,

The voices you hear in the series are the voices of actors because the characters were all created by a writer. I'm sorry to disappoint you!

I noticed at the 14 second mark that the lady says "You're looking well." Should it not be "You're looking good?" Sensory verbs are normally succeeded by an adjective. Using well in this case would change looking to an action verb and indicate that he has good eyesight. Is this correct?

Hello JGrace4,

Hello nash_d5,

You are correct that 'well' is often an adverb (with 'good' being the verb). However, it can also be an adjective with the meaning 'healthy' or 'not sick', and that is the meaning in this context.

Really good.

I like this video.

Not being a native speaker,I cannot understand why both my comments are considered "not moderate".My intention is to show how much I appreciate the opportunity the British Council gives us to listen to good British English pronunciation.I would very nuch appreciate your answer.

Hello Lidia,

'Not moderated' means that we haven't yet checked the comment to make sure it is not inappropriate in some way. Most days we moderate comments several times, so sometimes it takes several hours for your comments to be published and appear online. We're sorry that you have to wait, but this is how we keep the site free of spam and a safe and friendly place for everyone.

Your other two comments, of course, have now been published as well!

Best wishes,

Thank you very much for your friendly answer. As you see, I've just learned a new meaning of the term "not moderated.
All the best,
