Hello swxswx,

The meaning of 'charge' used here is on the dictionary page, but a little difficult to find it; it is 'the amount of money that you have to pay for something, especially for an activity or service'. The word 'surcharge' (which is easier to find in the dictionary) is also often used, and means the same thing here.

hi,
If two girls came to my home and ask me "can we play here ?".
are they asking me to play with them ?

no.they are sufficient.they are seeking only permission.

Hi anuprabha,

I would understand the question to mean that they would like to play in that location; it does not mean anything else, though the context might influence that.

Best wishes,

Cleared about you and they

Hellow. Sometimes is wrtitten - "in here", sometimes - "here". In which cases it use?

Hello MaxL,

'in here' is a bit more specific than 'here' - it indicates that the place is enclosed in some way, e.g. a room rather than a outdoor square. The first sentence about smoking is a bit more specific, but could say just 'here' instead of 'in here' as well.

For question #1. my wrong answer "speak English here."
Correct answer "speak English here"

Wrong due to full stop?

Hi khanka27,

Yes. Please note that there is already a full stop after the space for your answer. Two full stops (..) are not used in this way in English.
