    Dear Dominic,

    Thanks for your valuable site. I am very regular reading your daily lesson.
    I find the IELTS word of the day, in particular is so helpful. However, I couldn’t open the page for this lesson concerning the exercise for the word corporate. It gives me that this message:
    Error 404 – Page not found!
    The page you are trying to reach does not exist, or has been moved. Please use the menus or the search box to find what you are looking for.

    thanks and best regards
