Hi teachers,
They are for a listening exercise. So the student's don't have the text, only the questions.
According to this paragraph:
‘I didn’t like the old President. He was old and stupid. There’s never much food in the shops. When did I last eat some good meat?’ she said angrily. ‘I work every day, and what do I get? Nothing!’

1. What was Marta’s opinion about the old President? He was old and stupid.
2. What did Marta say about how often there is food in the shops?
a) She said, ‘There’s never much food in the shops’.
b) There was never much food.
3. Was Marta happy with her life? How do you know?
No she wasn’t. Because she said (that) she worked every day and got nothing.

Thanks in advance.

How come you always fine the right one and how come after I see it, it always seems so logical.
My only one brain celI is responsible for that. It is estimated that a single neuron can have up to thirty thousand connections. I guess around 25,000 are dying out and counting back, slowly though.
I hope it makes sense in English.Emotion: wink

Oh, you'll be fine. I pickle a few thousand of mine every day.
Mister MicawberOh, you'll be fine. I pickle a few thousand of mine every day.
