I wonder why I can't see the exercises... Any idea? Thanks

Hello,
I'm not sure why you can't see the exercises - I can see them OK. There is no exercise on the 'Preparation' tab, but each of the 'Task' tabs has one exercise.
What do you see instead of the exercise? An empty space? An error message? Also, what web browser are you using? We had some problems with Internet Explorer 9, so it might be that.
