Hi sirjoe777,
I've just registered in this web-site and it seems quite interesting to me;-)
However, it needs a lot of time to spend on it, as it's like a game and I can become addicted to it;-)
I've checked the paragraph you've done and I think you have no mistakes, just some words are missing in some places.
What about the rest of it? I'm trying to get it as well, but it's quite loooooong;-)

Believe me, Sirra, I'm a teacher: long exercises are the best one and very usefull - in physics or in english as well...
Thanks.

Hello,
This is very good, but actually, there are transcripts! If you click on 'Instructions and downloads' towards the top of the page, you can see them there.
Best wishes,

Many thanks, Adam... But printing the support pack, there wan't the dialogue. Now I found it...
By the way, could I told you what does it means: "Give it a go"?
Ciao.

 Hi Sirjoe777

To 'give it a go' means to try something - to make an attempt do do something.

You can also give something a try, give something a whirl, and give something a shot.

Thanks
