Hi samaa.mohd,

If you look a little further down the page at earlier questions and replies you'll see that I have already answered this question from another user.

hello teacher ,

I am sorry but I found the meaning for the first sentence but I didn't find the meaning for the other one so can you please explain it to me ?

thank you

hello samaa.mohd,

'The US surfing scene' means 'in the world of surfing in the US'. In other words, it describes all the people and organisations connected with or interested in surfing. You can use this kind of phrase in many contexts:

the contemporary poetry scene

the mountain biking scene

the classical music scene

Hello teacher
what's the difference between Punk fashion and funky fashion.
thanks

Hello Ali Ibrahiem,

'Punk fashion' means fashion related to or in the style of, or influenced by, punk. This was a style of music and dress popular in the 70s and 80s - you can see examples if you do an internet search. 'Funky' has a more general meaning in this context, rather than referring to a particular style, and means something like 'unusual, original and cool' - it has a positive meaning.

Best wishes,

Peter
