Why i cant play the recording?

Hello Mithami_tha,

Are you still not able to play the audio? I've just checked it and it was working for me, so I think it may have been a temporary error. If you still can't hear it, please let us know what browser version you are using and we'll look into it. I would also suggest trying a different browser or on a different device.

In any case, I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best,

1)He's been watching TV since 5 o'clock or He has been watching TV since 5 o'clock.
2)It's been raining all day or It has been raining all day.

I'm confused. Could you please tell me which one is correct.

Hello amit_ck,

Both forms are fine. In English we often use contractions like this in speech or in less formal written language, and they do not change the meaning.

Well, wait here LONG ENOUGH, MOST OF LONDON WILL COME IN.
Could you please simply explain me what does they mean in this sentence.

Hello amit_ck,

This is meant to be a humorous comment, showing us how busy the cafe is. So many people come in that if you wait for a long enough time, most of the peope who live in London will have come in at some point.
