Hi, There

Can you help me to explain this sentence: We've got to get a move on? What is that mean?

Thanks so much

Hello Nguyen thi Hai Huyen,

'to get a move on' means 'to go now' -- it implies that we must act now or that we are in a hurry.

Hi! I m really enjoying theses videos. I need to improve me listening skills.
Here in Brazil, the salespeople are always in our back to buy. I prefer to go in that kind of place that you see, chose and try the clothes by yourself. But sometimes I need some help, and it's good to count on a friendly salesperson.

Wow I am impressed by Ash's clothes at the end of the video, are they trendy clothes in the past or at the Carnival? And I don't know the use of ''a'' when she said ''in a size 6''. ''a'' is a word to repeat the shoe mentioned above or something else which we need to add when we talk about the size of a shoe? please help me.

Hello Trieu Hai Binh,

We use 'a' before sizes of various things including shoes ('a size 6'), clothes ('a medium', 'an extra-large') and drinks ('a pint', 'a regular').

What do u think about Ash's clothes at the end of this video?? I think Ash is creative with her clothes ^.^

Hello Mr./Ms. teacher, can you tell me the grammar about " Have got "?
Can we say: Do you have them in a size 6?

Hello Chfistina007,

The question form for 'have got' is different. I'll compare it with 'have' for you below.

 

HAVE

I have a dog.

Do you have a dog?

I don't have a dog.

 

HAVE GOT

I have got a dog.

Have you got a dog?

I haven't got a dog.

 

With 'have' we add an auxiliary - do (or does). With 'have got' we already have an auxiliary - have (or has) - and so we do not add another.

 

Best wishes,

hello sir? thanks for the discription but here is a question. which one is more formal during speach
I have adog or
I have got a dog

thanks for answering me
best wishes,
Azad

Hello Azad,

Both forms can be used in formal and informal speech, but in general 'have got' is used more often in informal situations. When we use 'have got' informally, it's almost always contracted. For example, instead of saying 'I have got a dog' I'd say 'I've got a dog'.
