Hello BC Team.
Is great, with every chapter, I learn more and more.

oh I love you British Council team!!! You are remarkable writers and just.... great people. By the way, I have a question about ~just great people~, Is it correct, please what is correct expresion? pleeease!!! I know my question is so confused, who is a Russian would untestand---- и просто хорошие люди

Hello who does not speak fluently,

What a user name!  I hope we can help you make it untrue for yourself...

'Just' here means something like 'simply' - 'you are simply great people' - and it is absolutely correct (in linguistic terms).

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
