This time, Stephen's left 'holding the baby'... or the dog, anyway!

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

Remember!

We use 'look' before an adjective:

     Poppy looks lovely.  ('looks' + adjective)

We use 'look like' before a noun or a clause:

     Poppy looks like a film star.  ('looks like' + noun)
     Poppy looks like she's enjoying her bath.  ('looks like' + clause)

It was amazing

Thank you.

Hello, I had fun watching the video and the ending is a bit captivating as the song puts a little sad and I still have trouble hearing because Ash speaks very fast and I can not understand it but for my level of English will improve. I will continue studying my English.

Hello Teachers :)) I have a new question for you . Here , in Scene 2 , when Stephen talks to the girl at the beauty salon he says : ' Well she certainly looks happy, healthy and beautiful - don't you ? ' / that's about Poppy / .
But why he Stephen doesn't use ' doesn't ' at the end ? / as he is speaking about Poppy /

Regards ,

Hi iliya_b,

When Stephen says this sentence, he begins it by speaking about Poppy (even though he is looking at her, probably because he was just speaking with the woman) but then changes to speaking directly to Poppy - this is why he says 'you' at the end. As he says 'you', 'don't' is the correct form.

Hi Learn English team

"Oh Hi there"
How this is used ?

Hi there rababa99,

It means the same as 'Hi' by itself, but suggests a little surprise, as though the speaker did not expect to see the other person.

Best wishes,

Can we use it in a formal way ?

Hello Orkhan Bakuvi,

'Hi there' is not normally used in a formal setting. 'Hi' is informal in general and 'hi there' is another form of it. A greeting like 'Good morning' (or 'afternoon' or 'evening', depending on the time of day) would be more appropriate in a formal situation.

All the best,

Poppy needs to ___look___ her best for her job.why did this sentence chose "look"? My answer is look like. Can you explain if you don't mind? Thanks a million.
