Wait..Do you guys see something moving when Ashlie is talking?

Haha, i saw it =)))). Loch Ness monster is real.

Hi teacher,
I would like to know why in the scene they say " I'm done" and not " I've done". Are these two sentences the same?Do they have the same meaning or not?
Thank you very much for your reply and for helping us learn english!

Hello Isabella,

'I'm done' is a very common way of saying that you have finished something. 'I've done' always needs some kind of object (e.g. 'I've done it' or 'I've done my homework'), but is not used alone (e.g. we don't say 'I've done'). It means basically the same thing, but note that 'I'm done' has no object. I know this might not make a lot of sense, but it's the way we speak!

All the best,

Thank you teacher for your useful and kind reply!

Sorry, here is a comment not related to English learning, but suddenly came to my view. Is that a ness or sth else in the lake from the video clips from 30 to 35 seconds? Feeling weird and curious on that moving creature.

Hi teacher.So "Nick looks at the four nations that make up the UK".This sentence is in green part.

Hello ayka91,

I'm afraid I still don't see that on this page, but in any case, now that I can see the sentence, I can tell you that 'Nick' is a common English name. Often, it's a familiar form of the name 'Nicholas'.

All the best,

Hi dear the LE team.
i dont understand what is NICK ?What that mean .Thanks indeed

Hello ayka91,

You can find definitions and examples of words in the Cambridge Dictionary. Please note that most words have more than one use or meaning, so you should read through all the entries carefully to find the one that makes the most sense.

In any case, I'm afraid I don't see the word 'nick' anywhere on this page. If I've missed it, please tell me where you've seen it.

All the best,
