Stephen's friend comes to London and Ashlie and Stephen show him around.


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.



I have a doubt about Task :Stephen and Jazz decide to walk because it is quicker than driving. I didn't see this part in text, then they get off in determined point.

Hello Celio_Morais,

The section which contains this information is where they complain about the traffic (even though it is worse during rush hour):

Jazz: The traffic in London is terrible. Is the traffic always this bad?

Stephen: Ah - you should see it in rush hour. Sometimes it’s quicker to walk. In fact, maybe we should… are you OK with walking?

Jazz: Is it a long way?

Stephen: It’s about ten minutes' walk to the flat from here.

So Stephen says that sometimes it's quicker to walk, and then suggests that they walk now, implying that walking is a better choice (i.e. quicker).

Why didn't the girl claim carrying a big luggage?

Hello Celio_Morais,

I'm not sure I quite understand your question. Ashlie forgot to take her bag, so it was just a problem with her memory!

I think that guys must have attention to her and the text should have emphasized (???) this attitude.

Thank you Mr. Kirk.

Thanks a lot for this kind of materials, they are very close to real films.
Could you please, answer this queston? I m sorry the question isn t about the video.
I ve heard: for example; 'at half eight' Does it mean half past eight or half past seven? Thanks a lot.

Best wishes.

Hello Must,

Good question! 'half eight' is a short form of 'half past eight' (8:30): 'half' is an abbreviation of 'half past'. This is very common in British English, but not so much in, for example, American English.

All the best,
