Now Ashlie has found her new flat, there's only the packing, moving, cleaning and unpacking to do. What could possibly go wrong?



Hello English team!
What happened with Dictionary online? I can't look up any words. Can you help me?
I think it's having some error?

Hello Chu Anh Quan,

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with this. I've checked and it appears to be working correctly, so I can only guess that it is a local problem. Perhaps you could try using a different browser or device to see if that helps - sometimes there is a compatibility issue with such things.

Thank you very much

This part was so funny. Thank you.

Hi teacher,
Stephen says "I want to make this chair look really nice for her new flat ". Is "make" working as a causative verb?. Why doesn't "look" end with a "s"?
Thanks a lot

Hi Sonia,

Yes, 'make' here is a causative verb, and that is why there is no 's' on the end of 'look'. The structure is [make something + verb] with the verb in the infinitive; hence 'look' not 'looks'.

Hello Teachers ,

here , at the end of the episide Ashlie says : Right . Er , Stephen , what's this ? These were the boxes you were supposed to get rid of .
Why does Ashlie use WERE ? I think as the boxes are in the room at the moment when she says so , she should use ARE .... or I'm wrong ?

Thank you',

Best regards,
