Do you hand in your homework on time? Have you ever made up an excuse about it? Did the teacher fall for it?

I usually hand in my English homework on time. English is one of my favorite subjects, math is too. The day before of the testing day, I sometimes don't do my homework at all. Then the next day, my teacher asks for the homework and I say that I left my homework at home but she falls for it. But in my mind, I do not do the right things that I have to do and I am very blue about it. I promise that I never lie my teachers again. I think tell the truth to the teachers is the best responsible.

Usually, I hand in my homeworks. But when I have many tests and homeworks, sometimes I don't do them. But my teachers forgive me, because it's a rare situation. However, my friends never do their homeworks, and sometimes they just copy them. I don't thing it's a good idea, because in the future they won't have anyone to borrow them their homework, but I don't say nothing to them, because they're my friends.

I'm not doing my homework all the time, and I'm not really proud of it. Sometimes I forget about it, so, I'm doing it in school. In the most cases, I'm doing my homework in school, although I know that I should do at home, no because of my teacher, who will give me plus or minus for my homework, but, because of me, who needs to excerice at home.

I don't have to hand in my homework everyday because my teachers often don't have enough time to check it all.
Just one year ago, I did my homework on time voluntarily. But now, I don't. The reason is that unlike my old teachers, my new teachers usually don't choose specific exercises for me, instead, they tell me to do all. I have been trying but I just can't finish it on time because it's too long and too difficult. I must also revise the lessons on my own since at school, I can't catch up with what the teachers say and it's time-consuming too. However, my teachers will be extremely angry if they know I didn't do all the exercises. So a friend of mine advised me to copy the homework first, then try to understand it. It's such a shame but we really don't have another choice. When we get good grades for our exams as we remember how to solve them, although we actually do it by ourselves, we're still sad. What do we do homework for?!

I am a good student so I always do my homework. In my class homework does a few students. Other students always copy our homework. It is really irresponsible but they are my friends and I do not blame them. When I was younger I sometimes forgot my homework and I made up an excuse. At first my teacher was angry but then she forgive me.

Sometimes I can totally forget my homework (usually because I watch too many MOVIES,and I'm not very proud of it lol) but I always tell the truth to my teacher. But this year I've started doing my homework regularly and I've also noticed that my grades are a lot better than last year. It's better for you to do your homework every day because you get to study at the same time,instead of studying the day before the big exam. :)

Usually I hand it at time but, A few times I had to come up with excusess and the teachers actually fell for them! Once I forget to do the my Maths project since it wasn't written in my HW diary. I got lucky that day, our Maths teacher is pretty strict I thought maybe she'll award me witha big fat egg shaped zero but she said she had extended the Maths project to next week! Still working on time is best. You won't lose anything if you do it on time!

Hi Ninosha. Sorry, at the moment the tasks are not iPad compatible. :( Do you have a computer that you can use to do the tasks? But the good news is, we are working on upgrading the site so the tasks will work on iPads soon. Please hold on!

My teachers are strict so better hand in homework on time. They've been teaching many generations of students they know understand us clearly and won't fall for any reason ^^

Hi marila2013. Let me try to help. Try these:

http://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/activities/phonemic-chart - on this website you can see the phonemic symbols and listen to them being pronounced. You can also download this chart to use on your computer, but you need to have Adobe Flash Player to use it.

http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/apps/sounds-right - if you have an iPad, you can download the chart free here.

Good luck with your exam and let us know how it goes! :)

I always do my homework on time, I do't like irresponsible students who never do their homework and want to copy it from others, which's the case in my class. None of my friends does homework, even the good students, because they don't find it important. On the contrary, I think that doing homework helps us to become diligent and to be responsible, and I think it's very important to do homework and to respect our professors. I must also admit that my professors're not so strict about doing homework; if you do it, it's great, but they usually don't notice that, and if you don't do it, it'll happen nothing, nono'll notice.

It's a creative and not useless tool for check OUT our english level. I thought that the guys in the video speak as a traditional britanic; I mean in words with "r". Something can explain to me, why?.
