Yes - even listening again is difficult.
And how does the clue of Old English help differentiate between break and brake?

236!! The word was lane and not blame!!!

I've just figured how to use the word help tips though, they do help though.
Life is like a camera... Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out Take another shot.

216 on the second time of trying
First time I got sappy - what sort of word is that
Thrifty Till 50 Then Spend Till The End

You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time

That was really good.
Although I found the womans pronunciation wasn't very clear on some words.

Just given it a go but found the words sometimes tailed off, especially the man's, so got several mistakes.

If you hear a word and you are not sure about it, click on word help, and then make sure you click across to next tip. The first tip gives the word origin, which isn't very helpful, but the next one gives word type (adjective etc), the next one is the definition, and the next one uses the word in a sentence.

Definitely helps for words like their/there etc.

No sound at work, so I did the multiple choice.

Definitely addictive!
