Hi Team.
I Knew that these sentences below are not a question sentence.
1. What's unusual here is that this programme isn't made for television.
2. What I really like about football is the copetitive side.
Why in 1. has an auxiliary 's' while in 2 doesn't?
Would you please explain?
Thank you in advance.

Hello Nizam,

In 1, 'what' is the subject of the verb 'is' in the clause 'what is unusual here' (all of which is the subject of the second verb 'is'). It's another way of saying 'The thing that is unusual here is that ...', or, to change the structure even more, 'The unusual thing about this programme is that it isn't made for television'.

In 2, 'what' is the object of the verb 'like' in the clause 'what I really like about football'.

These are examples of cleft sentences, which you can read more about on this Cambridge Dictionary page.

Thanks for explaining Kirk.
Just one more question :
Could you tell me what Rob doing now is?
A. What Rob doing now is teaching
B. What is Rob doing now is teaching
C. I tell you what Rob doing now is teaching
D. I tell you what is Rob doing now is teaching
E. I tell you what Rob is doing now is teaching
===============
Which ones are correct?
I'll choose B and E.
What do you think? Am I right?
Thank you very much.

Hello Nizam,

E is correct and B is almost correct -- it's just the word order that is wrong. If you change B to 'What Rob is doing now is teaching', then it is also correct.

Good work!

Thanks a lot for explaining and pointing the mistake out.
I'll correct it :
"Could you tell me what Rob is doing now"
B. What Rob is doing now is teaching.
E. I'll tell you what Rob is doing now is teaching.
Thanks again, Kirk.

I have a question ,series has the same mening to part?

Hello Gege,

'Part' is a very general word which means simply something which is a smaller unit from a larger whole; it is incomplete and can be anything from a tiny amount of the whole to almost all of it.

'Series' is a more specific word which is most often used to describe a film, TV, books and so on. It refers to a collection of separate works (episodes, books, poems etc) which together form a larger set. Thus, there are seven books in the Harry Potter series, for example.

 

Best wishes,

Thanks peter

I like watching Videos about history and cultures

I love watch Tango workshops on the internet to improve my dance. I follow movies that helps me with my English learning too but it's more difficult than with British Council.
I haven't seen much films made for the internet.
