Hi learn English team.
can we say : "i wonder what time is the last train" ?

Hello lenhatsang,

That is correct except that the word order should be 'I wonder what time the last train is'. Since this sentence is structured like a question, it has the word order of a reported question.

All the best,

Hi there. I'm not sure if I can catch what Stephen said at the end of the video... Did he say "catch you next time"? Also, is this something like "see you later", the words you can say when parting with someone, and is it quite informal?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Sukie,

The sentence is actually 'Chat to you next time' but 'Catch you later' or 'Catch you next time' would also be quite normal ways to finish the conversation. All of these are quite informal, as you say.


Best wishes,

Hi Peter

Ah, "chat to you"! I thought I heard something like "chat" but guessed I misheard it as I didn't know the expression "chat to you next time". Thank you!

Chat to you next time

So Peter is there any thing wrong if say: "What a wonderful holiday"?

Hello spaceface,

'What a wonderful holiday!' is correct -- note that I added an exclamation mark ('!'), which is usually used with this kind of sentence (unless it is sarcastic).

I mean why is it wrong if I say "What a wonderful weather"?
