Preparation

Before you watch

Think about the following questions:

  • What kind of things do you like to do when you visit a place on holiday?

Hi...in that clip of a video when Ash lost her bag Stephen asked her..'did you have it with you on the train'? then AShy replied yes your right I had it with me on the train....my question is if Stephen could ask in this way 'Did you have it on the train' and Ashy could repl yes i had it on the train would the question be the same or not? and if not what is the difference btn the two questions?

Hello,
I hope you are fine , I watched the video and I don't understand some of the grammar sush as l had it with me on the train . So please help me .

Ho frozan,

All Word on the Street episodes begin with a scene (scene 1) and then some of the grammar from that episode is explained in the following episode (language focus 1).

'I had it with me on the train' is the verb 'have' in the past tense, 'it' refers to Ashlie's bag, and 'on the train' refers to a location.

I hope this helps you. By the way, please be as specific as you can when you ask questions - that way we can help you better!

I listen to radio, watch news and read magazines at BBC website, those broadcasters' English intonation is reasonably clear and I could hear exactly every worlds they're saying. But it is little hard for me to listen to Ashlie and Stephen speaking British English as if they have fully traditional voice. Anyway, it's make this item unique and attractive. I love it!
