- Singer Gwen Stefani on her lasting marriage with Gavin Rossdale. (Elle)

Definition

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

let’s be honest about it; let’s admit it

2. Use - Learn how the slang is used.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

If you want to ignore something or pretend it doesn’t exist, you can turn away from it and not look at it. But if you want to deal with it and be honest about it, you look right at it, or face it.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have been together for 14 years. That is a pretty long relationship, and let’s face it, it’s an eternity in show business, with so many celebrity relationships ending in heartbreak.

Not every couple wants to face the fact that relationships aren’t always easy. It takes work if you want to stay together as long as Gwen and Gavin have. But let’s face it, true love is worth the work.

When was the last time you had to face something difficult?

Examples

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

“I love my mom, but let’s face it, she’s a terrible cook.”

Let’s face it, that was the worst vacation ever.”

“I know you don’t want to hear this, but let’s face it, it’s time to grow up.”

The last time i had to face something difficult is make the decision to break up with my boyfriend. Actually i did it several times before to him, but both of us cannot stand that pain being apart after a long time relationship. This time we have to just face it that we’re not couple any more. Yes, that’s the most tough thing i have to face last time.

Very good lesson!But about the point, I'm married for 18 years and very happy with it too. Because all problems we faced together, we learn together in happiness and sadness.

May God Bless you all.

We all use this "english baby" to improve our English language, but let's face it, it has very content. It does have a limited vocabulary, it is not possible to add or import your own vocabulary, its grammar only covers a narrow subjects. From the other hand it haven't provided a true talkative chat room for speaking and the listening lessons, which I think could be called the most advantage of this site, only made by two persons which means you very soon will get used to their accent, therefore, it lacks variety in accent or dialectic.I don't want to be pessimistic, but let's face, that the only reason we come here is there are not too many options left.
