Hi, I am not sure that I understand about : " he seems to be pointing under that sofa ".
Thank you.

Hello Sarihui,

'to be pointing' is the continuous infinitive of the verb 'point' - the continuous form speaks about something in progress. If you look up 'point' in our dictionary (see the search box on the right), look for the entry (near the bottom) that begins with 'direct people's attention' and I think you'll understand it. They're referring to the man on the floor at about 0:20.

I just dislike the fact the only black guy on the video was working as a waiter. "Word on the Street looks at how English works in everyday life and presents lively aspects of young British culture". Don't forget how important the representations are.

Hello bonifaciocarol,

Thanks for writing and raising this important issue. You're completely right, of course, about the importance of representations of different groups of society. It's something we take seriously.

Although your point is fair for this individual video, over all 30 episodes of Word on the Street, I think you'll find that there is a good balance of representations.

Thanks and good luck with your studies.
