Am very satisfied with this fantastic online courses thanks all of you #brithishcouncil

Thanks to British council that gives all of us the possibility to learn English for free. This web is well structured and very simple to follow. I've been studying English for years spending loads of money attending courses and buying books, simply because I had never believed that courses like this might help you to boost your English, But, now that I have discovered and studied a bit of it, I have to change my idea. Once again, many thanks.

hi there ,

i am learning english from these episodes. My question is "That’s three job offers I've had in the last five minutes! "

What is that meaning for I've had ?

Hi xalphonse,

The phrase I've had here means I have received. We often use 'have' in place of other verbs like 'eat' (have a meal), 'drink' (have a coffee), 'take' (have a bath), for example.

That is very insteresting)

Thanks a lot of these episodes ,,
My question : what is the meaning of phrase : you'd easily get it.
Character "d" means would or had
Best wishes

Hello mmansour,

It's a contracted form of 'would' here. 'had easily get it' is not grammatical, and 'would easily get it' makes sense.

All the best,

Good morning everybody
I have started learning english for just one day. I am enoying very much with the series episodes

Hi there,

I just would like to know if the phrase " I did think " is correct grammatically saying.
I should use "did" in negative and question sentences shouldn't I ?

Thanks a lot.
Best wishes,

Hello Fernando,

Usually we use 'did' to form negative sentences and questions, as you say. However, we can use it to add emphasis to an affirmative sentence. This is common when we think the other person does not believe us and we are trying to convince them that what we are saying is true:

I spoke to her.

You did not! I don't believe you.

No, really, I did speak to her!


Best wishes,
