Thank you very much.

Hello Xucon1113,

I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thanks very much for telling us about this. Would you mind telling us what device and browser you're using (and if you know how to find it, what version of the browser it is)? We're working to fix this, but in the meantime you might be able to solve this problem by changing browsers or devices temporarily.

All the best,

I see, thank you for your answer!

Hello LearnEnglish Team!
In the task 3 what word from the recording does mean the same that word "hurt"? I tried word "injury" but it doesn't match.

Hi krig,

'hurt' can be used as a verb, adjective and noun; here it's used in adjectival form and so the answer is 'injured'. By the way, you can see the correct answers by pressing the Submit button.

Hello! I have one question. How can i ask "What do you mean?" or "How do you mean". lately I have started to study ))) Thanks

Hello Ilvira,

'What do you mean?' is used much more often than 'How do you mean?'; much of the time, they mean the same thing. 'How do you mean?', when used, is generally used to ask for more information about something quite specific, but 'What do you mean?' also does that. I'd recommend you just use 'What do you mean?'
