Fast City Life Quiz Thursday, April 5, 2007

This week we have a live competition.

At the beginning of the programme Neil asks this question:

Which word in English becomes shorter when you add two letters?

A little bit of a trick question this one. The correct answer is the word 'short'. Add the two letters 'er' and it becomes 'shorter'!

The winner was Emmanuel, congratulations, we'll be sending you a BBC Learning English prize!
