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,

i am very much thankful that this is just a learning much from my mistakes.

Hello vamshi,

There are a lot of useful sites on the internet for this. I'd suggest you do an internet search for 'improve spelling'. Then take a look at several pages and choose one that appeals to you the most.

Good luck!

It's strange that Harry agrees come to Olivia to fix her website. Actually website's repair is possible from anywhere where is access to internet. May be Olivia doesn't know this, but Harry does. So Fadi has a reason to be jealous.

hello, please explain this kinds of structures of " have to"...
To-infinitive: i don't want to have to wait in a queue for ages.

After a modal verb: Emma has toothache. She might have to go to the dentist.

Present perfect: Mark has had to drive all the way to Glasgow.

I've heard it many time native speaker use ...
i have got to be going..
i have got to be heading back...
why don't they use it like this...
i have got to go..
i have got to head back..

thanks advance
