What's up dear??

Wowwww!!! What an amazing listening! I'm astonished and delighted at the same time... 'cos I need to improve my listening skills ;)

8/10 not bad, but I've failed the number five, I thought there were Officials instead policemen... and I was pretty sure 8/10 not bad, but I've failed number five, I thought there were Officials instead policemen... and I'm quite sure my answer is correct, could be??

Because as listening carefully after doing the test, I understood Officials again. Could you clarify my doubt?? Thx in advance.

Anyway, good contribution this kind of exercises, 'cause final exams are coming. I don't know how I might be able to show you all my gratitude for your effort and dedication with your incredible supporting Blog.

Forever and ever you will be my teacher, and I never ever will cease to be your pupil.

Dear Carla,
You really flatter me with those words...
One of the few things I've learnt in this life is that being a good teacher doesn't mean you must know the answer to all the questions...
Recently I've heard that not even GOD does(what has saddened me badly).

For one thing I have no idea what the difference between 'officials' and 'policemen' is. If you could please tell me, maybe I'll be able to solve the doubt...

And hey, you got 8 out of ten!!!you did better than myself!!(LOL)
See you!
