hi sir,

what does it mean?
"he is too bound up in his work to have much time for his children"

Hello Afia shakir khan,

You can find the meaning of 'bound up' in the Cambridge Dictionary. I believe that will clarify it for you, but if not, please ask us more specifically about which part you don't understand.

All the best,

Hi!Can you help me, please?Can you explain the meaning?
"A spot of colour is a spot of life"
I think it means "colours are the meaning of life."Am I right?

Hi mehinaydinli,

I'm afraid unless it is placed in a clearer context this sentence does not have one clear meaning but could mean many things. We need to know who says this, to whom, where and about what, and we also need to know what they have been saying before this. It appears to have a metaphorical rather than literal meaning, but without knowing the context any guesses would have no real basis.

It's the title of the lesson.Lesson is about various handicrafts and decocative-applied art.It tells about the colours of carpets:brightness of pomgranate,golden brilliance of quince,copper of saffron... .to my mind it means that " colours is the meaning of life".but I'm not sure.

Hello mehinaydinli,

There are probably other, similar ideas that would also make sense, but what you say sounds right to me. 

All the best,

I am Tesfaye, is it possible to get audio english lesson

Hello Tsion Tesfaye,

I'm afraid we don't organise lessons on LearnEnglish. We provide many materials for our users and try to help users with their problems, but LearnEnglish does not organise courses or lessons as such.
