Really good!!! Thank You!!!

I like this part.

This is my first time being here, I think I've found the best website to learn English.

The conversation is about some youngsters with different problems. Sarah was looking for a flat. Her friend Fadi promised to help her and will bring her to look at his cousin's flat. Magda as a trained architect, was looking for a job but refused to work in a cafe or a shop. Fadi was at a grudge with Harry while Olivia worked in a self-owned shop of  handmade shoes.
The dialogue was clear and well spoken in beautiful English.  I can learn to speak easily by imitating their verses. The intonation and the patterns are pretty,too.
As  I grew up and learn English in Hong Kong, I am in lack of the environment to practise my oral English. My speech is very bookish and not natural. The intonation is strange, too.  I am very grateful to the British Council by providing all the resources free for all. I enjoy learning English here.

 Yay, most of my answers were correct . This is excellent exercise even for those who want to improve their language skills!
