    Your CELTA tutor wants to see what you can do, not what we can do. You need to do all the work yourself. Please look at the amendments I made to your post above. Remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Put the words you are querying in quotes (or in italics).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: explaination between overweight and fat

    I do know the reply, it cannot be the definition but rather an explanation of how to differentiate between the two. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your profile indicates that your native language is English and you hail from the UK. If that is correct, you should know that "fat" is an insulting word to call someone.
