Hello !
I saw in top of the video: "Rob talks about the verb 'like' and different ways of making suggestions." I think it's a mistake, don't I ? Rob talks about the verb "look".
All the best !

PS:: Very interesting video ! Thanks a lot !

Hello clauvera2016,

Yes, you're right – that's a mistake. We'll fix that as soon as we can. Thanks very much for telling us about it! 

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

could you please tell me why we put "a" before "go" in the second sentences in Task 3?

Hello ramez ba,

'go' can be used as a noun to mean 'try', so 'have a go' is an expression that means 'try'. You can find example sentences in the dictionary if you look up 'go' and scroll down until you find the entry for 'go' as a noun.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team



what does : " This room looks like a a hurricane hit it!" means in task 1? (I don't understand" hurricane hit it"

Hi gillesparis,

This idiom means that the room was a complete mess and not tidy at all.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

Hm, this part was easy. Thanks.
