Even Rob's getting into the Christmas spirit, with some special presents for Stephen and some special Christmas words for viewers.


Watch the video. Then go to Task and do the activities.




Rob is excellent teacher and charming person! Whatever he explained - everything is clear!

At (02:14) Stephen says, 'It's the same size. .......' Could you please fill some words I can't catch? Thank you very much.

Hello Aung Thet Naing,

He says "It's the same size - like, say, 'I'm as tall as you.'"

Best wishes,

The expression "as long as you take good care of it" meas the same than "as long as you take a good care of it"... I have listened the expression with article "a" in it...

Thanks !

PS Unscramble the words in brackets to give Christmas expressions - task 1 - does not resolve correctly the words starting by upper case, only all upper case or lower case letters are evaluated correctly

Hello MayelaM,

The expression 'take (good) care of' is a fixed expression and it is not used with 'a' in that way. It is possible to use the indefinite article with 'care' but only in other expressions such as 'have a care for' or 'not have a care in the world'.

Thanks for pointing out the capitalisation issue. Some phrases are capitalised in English, such as Christmas Eve, and these are now correct answers. Other phrases which are not normally capitalised in English need to be entered either entirely in lower case or entirely in upper case (for emphasis).

Best wishes,

hi, I'm Huyen. I'm from Vietnam. I'm very happy when know this website. i'm a student but my english is quite bad. i dont know how to improve my English, when start and where start. can you show me? sorry if i type wrong. perhaps you understand my expression :(

Hi Huyen,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! It's difficult for me to give you concrete advice without knowing more about your needs, your abilities and your interests.  However, I can give you some general suggestions.

First of all, take some time to explore the site.  Use the links at the top of the page to go to different sections and see what kinds of materials are available.  Get a feel for the level of difficulty of different sections so you can see what will be most useful to you at the moment.

Second, start with something that is not too high a level.  Many of our users begin with Elementary Podcasts Series Three before moving on to more challenging material.  Work through the episodes, and remember that you can use the transcript to help you, or to read and listen at the same time after you have done the exercises.

Third, keep a vocabulary notebook as you work.  Organise it by topic ('work', 'family', 'food' etc) and add words and phrases to it as you go through the material.  Test yourself regularly to see if you remember the words.

Finally, try to find time to practise English during your regular day.  Perhaps you have a friend who is also learning English, with whom you can practise speaking, or perhaps you can practise by yourself, just speaking English when you are alone at home or at work.  This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English in the 'real' world you are ready and confident.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

Best wishes,
