Hi Pocoyo,

That's right - this expression is often used to express anger, but here Branson uses it in a different way. Here and in other cases it means something like "I don't care what happens or what other people think". I think what he means is that we should all do the work that we want to and not worry about what other people say.

Hi Kirk,

Thank you! : )

Peter, there is no sound? what am i doing wrong?

Hi Liliya,

I've just checked and I was able to hear the sound, so I think it might be a problem on your end. Are you able to hear other videos on LearnEnglish? What about on other websites?

Best wishes,

Good Morning
What means " I’m off to "? I can't find it in Cambridge Dictionaries Online.

Hello geortheo,

'I'm off to' is a colloquial expression. It is short for 'I'm heading off to' and it is something that we say as we are leaving when we are going somewhere. For example, in the morning you might say 'I'm off to work now!' or 'The kids will be off to school in a minute'.

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

Peter

I‘m excited that I have the opportunity to access the wonderful LearnEnglish resources. I thank all the staff of The LearnEnglish Team. I'm afraid I would come here in this websit each day to practice my Listening English. I believe that the resources here will help me a lot in a short time.
