sorry but i did not catch the joke in this episode
the man said that the dog hated the book
What book??

It's ok! British humour!=)

My favourite musician is Morrissey. I wouldn't like to meet him though as people say he's a bit weird. A lot of geniuses are 

Hello everyone,
I don't know why I don't see the right exercises:
Section 1 Exercise 1 should be :  ,, How are you feeling?" but it's about comments on a friends clothes from Series 01 Episode 03
and Section 8 Exercise 1 should be about British money but it's a joke from Section7
Best wishes to all of you here on this website
