Thank you for those episodes!

Hi Teacher,

Let's have a look at this sentences " Restaurants from all around the world can be found on most British high streets". My question is, why "the" article is missing at " on (the) most British,...,"?

Hi silangit,

In this sentence 'British' is an adjective. The noun is 'high streets'.

When we are talking in non-specific terms about plural things (i.e. about 'most high streets' not about particular high streets), we do not use an article.

If we were talking about a particular group of high streets then we could use an article but it would come before the moun, not before 'most':

...most of the high streets in this part of London...

hi i am Dania from Syria I enthsiastic about trying new food and flavours i hope i can travel more to taste new food
by the way i like home made food
in my country the traditional food is based on fresh ingredient

I love this type of food market, I love eating through a huge range of stand. Unfortunately, I've never been to Borough Market and I hope to go there as soon as I can even for trying something new. A similar food market it's in Camden Town, I don't remember exactly the name of it but I remember that it's very exciting and obviously in Camden, you can amuse as much as you want!

Hi team .I did not understand when we can use " close by ".
And synonym please .Thanks very much indeed.)))))

Hello ayka91,

'close by' means 'near'. You can find a definition and example on this Cambridge Dictionary page.

All the best,

Hello! My name is Anne and I'm Reunionese (from Reunion Island, France).
Thank you for this interesting and amazing video :) I want to share with you my favourite food.

So, I like Indian food that I find it very tasty and spicy. My favourite dish is Fish Curry.
In my island, two of our typical dishes are Goat Curry and Rougail Saussice ( a preparation with sausages, tomatoes and some spicies).
If someone is interested by know the recipes of these two dishes, you can ask me :-)
