Hi teachers,
According to this text:
Julia and her boyfriend saw a film in the centre of London this evening. The fastest way home is the train, but they are obviously going to miss it. The train is going to leave any second, and they are just at the ticket window. “I’m going to find a boyfriend with a car!” Julia is thinking to herself.

Are the following questions and answers correct?
a) Did Julia and her boyfriend go to an entertainment event? Yes, they did.
b) When did they see the film? They saw it that evening.
c) Which is the quickest way home? The train is.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jim,
Thank you for your reply. The explanation is very clear. I would have never arrived to that conclusion by myself.
No need to say, 'Of course you wouldn't'. Though you may think that. Emotion: winkTS

You might have if you had thought about it more.

Hi Jim,
I can believe I made that mistake. 'arrived to'. I have probably told my students a million times that 'arrive to' doesn't exist in English, that they can only use 'arrive in' or 'arrive at'.Emotion: angry

You might have if you had thought about it more. Since 'might' is used for saying that there is a possibility that something is true, I really appreciate it. But believe me I wouldn't.

Thinking SpainBut believe me I wouldn't.
I'll have to take your word for it. Emotion: smile
