It gives me _____ to introduce our today’s speaker, Professor Binkowski. A. great pleasure B. a great pleasure Note: I just checked the dictionary and found that pleasure is usually an uncountable noun. But my choice is still B because I think I’ve heard “it’s a please” before. Do you also think the answer is B?

Hi NoAgneda, if I was to write that sentence I would definitely use A., but if you are speaking, you can get away with using B. too. 'It's a please' is rather colloquial, so I wouldn't recommend it in written English ^^ Regards, airabeth
