Sorry! I don’t understand when Harry says “I want to spent my money well”. Could you explain it for me? Thanks!

Hello Steven Bui,

Harry means that he does not like to waste his money. He is explaining why he goes to expensive restaurants and is saying that it's better to spent more in a good place with good quality food than try to save money and end up with poor food.

Very good diallogue. And surprised action. I learnt a lot from it.
I like especially task about the part of speech. I noticed that the best method of studying words is learning it with the part of speech. In particular that it has general rules in using. But how often it is existing, there are exceptions. But is is not the place for writing about it.
And for the concerned people, I would like to suggest the lecture additional text, just for fun - A First Date Poem, wrote by Charles Hancock.
Have a lovely day and hear you later!

You say "would you mind to come with me" and "would you mind telling me" as well.
So can we say "would you mind coming with me"

Hi sir!
In this sentence (I’ve only got a minute) which tense has been used?

Hello zaki2,

It's actually the present simple, though I expect that may surprise you. The verb 'has/have got' is used to indicate possession. You can learn more about it on this Word on the Street page (in the video) or this BBC page.

All the best,
