hi Alan,
thanx for your explanation for the previous question.
I wanna know what does 'face up' mean (Ref:incompl/elem-32 "Responses (5)", question 10)
Can it b used in the context (w.r.t. q) that though a person is depressed , they should not get boggled up with it but face the situation n thereby tackle it???

regards

Hi Sangeetha,

The full expression is face up to and this has the meaning of accepting what is going to happen/being fatalistic as in:

As you get older (and I know all about this!), you have to face up to the aches and pains you feel and not complain.

Alan

We use it too, also we use "Head up".
Whether those phrases can be used in UK or USA?

Helo to everyone,

More than ever I want to intensify my teaching in English, this for many reason...anyway

I was trying to solve some of the test that torsten sent to me, but the program put some of my answers to the questions wrong...that means If manually I choose the right answer (I guess this happened only for the question 6 and 8 or 9), when I want to see my mistakes, the program change always my answer putting them to the wrong choices...I dont now why, I tried to remake the test and resulted the same thing.

It is not any problem because in some how I can realized the correct answer but I want to make sure to you if the software does have any problem recently.
