Hi AnnaGJ,

'Sort of' here means the same as 'kind of'. It's not a verb, but a phrase which we use when we want to be a little vague. The way the man uses it here is not really typical, but that's his way of speaking. Other examples:

I sort of like that film, but it's very unusual.

The food is sort of tasty, I suppose.

He sort of told me about it, but it wasn't very clear.

Those pop-up art galleries are a good way for young artists to show their art. I think that it wouldn't be possible in France because of the administrative rules that are so strict and binding !

Thank you, this part was easy for me.

In video, the woman said :'It doesn’t look like it’s just been put up. It looks like it could have been here for quite a while.'
What was her mean?

Hi Mona Moravej,

She means that it doesn't look like it is something which is new and has just been made or built, but rather like something older.
