    From reading what you're asking for, you've been asked to describe an Activate Study Engage session for your upper intermediate student about traveling.

    Can you give any information about the activate session or the study session?

    Why were the other 2 attempts that you made considered as being aimed towards groupwork? Perhaps you can put those up on the forum and let other people pick their brains over them - perhaps some other opinions can help guide you where you went wrong (not wrong but misguided shall we say?) with the first 2 attempts?

    A friendly piece of advice , no-one needs to go blackbelt ninja with the emoticons to prove a point. Grow up a little mate.

    And whats that about Nazi Germany? Dont try and make similitudes between someone expressing an opinion that displeases you and a fascist governement.


    Hi newbe

    The first part is fine, the second is attempts to make your motive seem harmless as you're just getting the odd answer. And it's not the first time:

    And, of course, you can claim that this was just a joke and you never would have accepted it.

    Hi I need some help correcting these, no matter which I choose I still get 13 out of a maximum of 25 (52%) I need to get at least 75%. I donít know what im doing wrong and I changed most of them but I still got 13 out of a maximum of 25. Can anyone genuinely help check where I went wrong?? Ive put my answers in bold. please be kind to an old guy
    Straight request for the answers in order to get a better mark by submitting other people's work as yours. Again, how would you distinguish this from cheating? Probably the same way by calling me a names and telling me to get off the site.

    Well, thanks for the advice. It would be better, though, if you had the decency to remove your references to Germany and China, which some may well find distasteful or offensive, and having a Chinese wife does not, IMO, give you carte blanche anyway. Please replace them with general childish abuse about me.

    BTW, you talk of a free press, but I did not try to censor you; I asked you to justify what you were doing and distinguish it from cheating. Calling me names and being rude about other nations isn't a particularly good way of doing that. You may believe it's just the 'odd answer' and a 'cry for help', but it is not. The only person trying to stifle and control the debate and flow of ideas here is you.

    If you really believe that you are not cheating, why don't we submit a copy of every post you have made to your course provider and ask what they make of them? That way we can all sleep sound in our beds.

    I have the feeling that even though you are totally innocent and wouldn't dream of doing such a thing, you might not take me up on the offer.
