Hi Sher,
I'm so happy to hear that you like our web site.
There isn't really a starting point on this website. Just look around, find some parts that are useful for you and get started! There isn't any way to check your level either, although it's something we'd like to do in the future.
As for the support packs on S1E1 and S1E2, they are in the normal place, under 'Instructions & Downloads'.
Best wishes,

I've just sent my paragraph for the rubric "I'd like to meet".I would like to know if you read it:D.

Hello,
Did you email it to us? In that case, I can't guarantee that it's been read. Most of the team are on holiday at the moment, so we are getting behind with our email!
Best wishes,

hi
i think football is not a game only.
it is a business also.
the companies earn money from the men s football more than the women s football

Yes, that helps, thanks =)

Hello!

Could you help me to fix the exercises, they are not appear.

Thanks

Hello,

We have some problems at the moment with some versions of Internet Explorer. You should be able to see the exercises with another web browser, like Firefox or Google Chrome. You can also wait a day or two, after which we should have fixed the problems.

Best wishes,

Adam
