A personal favor please!!! (lyrics)   
Hello everybody!!! I know about this singer called Tarra Layne.  Here I post a link to the video of her song "Druglessly" (in case the link doesn īt work, just google "Tarra Layne - Druglessly). As hard as I tried, some of the lines of her song are difficult for me to understand (facepalm). I beg you to help me, especially because my wife loves this song, so I can give her a nice surprise!

Here is the link:
You can send me the lyrics to the PM or just post it as a reply. I also hope you like the song.
Thanks in advance

He he, excellent stuff! I once got 6 points for the writing section of a GCSE exam (Urdu) when only 5 points were available. I thought of questioning it, but then I thought again as any re-marking would have lowered my overall grade.

Saudi Arabia

a lot of -- much   

This question in the text book makes me confused:

There is ( much   -  a lot of ) beautiful scenery.

The answer is a lot of .

Can you explain why ??

I thought the answer is much 

What do you think ?

Thank you

Caption competition winner   
Maybe it was a difficult picture, so there weren īt too many entries. But the ones there were, were really good! Thank you for having a go. There can only be one winner though and that is.... FLORIMAGO! She likened the small shaggy dog to Nicolas Cage in a shaggy dog movie. I love Nicolas Cage, but ... he does look a bit like that little dog!
Over to you, Flori.

I īm new here but I īve been looking at different things. Wouldn īt it be nice if the name of the country appears next to the flag? Some flags are easily recognizable but others aren īt.  I bet mine isn īt because I īm from a very small country. Thanks in advance.

Embedding videos from youtube   
It īs been a while since I made an online exercise and so I can no longer find the tutorials for embedding the youtube videos. Things seem a little different from last.  I found the place to insert it though and when I did, I could see the code embedded but no video. I was trying to make a listening exercise with Stevie Wonder īs I wish. And when I published it, there was no video only a code showing. What did I do wrong?
I inserted youtube
found the code as instructed
copied it and pasted
and pressed insert
What more is there? Please help me if you can. I would be so grateful.

Peter, Jenny means inserting a youtube video into an online exercise here.
Jenny, did the video appear when you clicked on insert?  I just tried it and the first time the video did not appear, only the code.  So I tried again and then it worked and the video showed. Once the video can be seen, you should not have any problems when you publish the online exercise.
