Hi Celia,

You have been very busy doing these exercises.

Rememeber that there are also exercises to do on the English File webpage.


All fine except for:

1. A: How long do you need/take to get to work? B: About 40 minutes.
(My mistake: there were two missing words "take" and get "to" work.)


No mistakes! Excellent.

Hi Graham, It's me Celia Bueno

Jajaja, I spend 10 minutes thinking about my mistake because I don't understand where was it.

But now I've been reading your message several times and I've just understand that the other mistake was in the sentence.

I'll try to read better.

See you in class tomorrow. Thank you to correct them

Celia,

Infact, you didn't make any mistakes. I did when I wrote the exercise.

You are welcome! :-)
