Hello Teacher.Tell me please the meaning of 'keep an open mind'.
Thank you very much
Best regards

I'm not teacher but I can answer :)
'keep an open mind' means 'thinking calmly'

Hello safira3,

You can find a definition and example sentence in the dictionary entry for 'open mind'. I think that should clear it up for you, but if not, please let us know.

All the best,

Hi Teacher,
Seek your explaination what’s difference betweeen “what’s it like to live here” with “what’s it like living here”.
Best regards

Hello Trinh Phuong Anh,

There is no difference in meaning between these two phrasings of the question. You can also see 'What's living here like?' All three are correct and mean the same thing.

Hello teachers,

In dialogue of Nick and Micheal, Nick asked Micheal "So what goes on here at the LSE Student’s Union?". The question make me confusion because in English grammar there is "auxiliary word" in question sentence. This mentioned above question is not an "auxiliary word". Can you help me please? Thank you so much.

Hello Loi,

This is a 'subject question', i.e. a question where the question word is the subject of the verb. In this case, an auxiliary verb is not used. If you follow the link, you'll see a more detailed explanation of this. If you have any further questions, however, please let us know.

All the best,
