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

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.

i'm happy for joining such an awesome site ,and i hope to improve my English by your help
Thank you
