I have a question: when you are outsourced by a company to work for another company and the second one decides not to hire you and they finish your contract … I should say I was fired? or I was laid off?
(I would say I was fired, but I want to be sure)

Hi Emma,

thanks for nice lesson,

but the pronunciation of PROMOTE is different to

PROGRESS.

PROMOTE /prəˈmoʊt/

PROGRESS /ˈprəʊ.ɡres/ UK or /ˈprɑː.ɡres/ US

(I looked up this words in Cambridge dictionary, in Merriam Webster and in Longman dictionary.)
