I did not understand why the answer to the question "How many classes can you take for £10?" It can be four. Because I feel that the answer was not in the text

Hi mrhapple1980,

The answer is in line 4, where it says this: "How much? £10 for four 30-minute classes."

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help, I was staring at the question for a minute and didn't understand what they meant by that. Then I realized there is a "four" in the sentence.

in my opinion, lunch time is not at 1:30 p.m. is it?

I assume it depends on the country you are working in. In Milan (Italy), for example, the lunch break is around 13.30. When is lunch time in your country? :)

Hi I don't understand this part in the dialogue "£10 for four 30-minute classes"
Would someone explain it for me ?!

Hello Brroo,

This phrase gives three pieces of information: a price (£10), the number of classes (4), and the duration of each class (30 minutes).

All together, this means that if you pay £10, you can attend four classes. Each class is for 30 minutes. So for £10 you get a total of two hours of class.

It's quite a bargain, actually!

All the best,
Kirk
