Thanks very much Jack,
I know the answer by myself before reading your comment because I didn't know how to get the replies for my questions. I don't know why no messages had been sent to my email.
I know that sounds a naive question but  that always happens when I discover something new.
Thanks for your help

Hi there,
I would like to do more exercises on this serie but I'm not able to find " the support pack" as it said i can download and print the extra practiced materials from that.  Can you suggest me where to find it please?
Big thanks,
Nk
