Hello amit_ck,

This is meant to be a humorous comment, showing us how busy the cafe is. So many people come in that if you wait for a long enough time, most of the peope who live in London will have come in at some point.

Excellent course. The quality this lessons are wonderful.


I listened more 2/3 of this episode and learnt something from comments below, such as the differ of "suppose to" or "should"... Many thanks and will try to study English on this site everyday.


by the way I´m very happy with the course

I'm still a bit confused about the use of someone- somebody or anybody - anyone. I'm not sure when to use it

Hello Marcela Prieto,

These are examples of indefinite pronouns. We have a page on the topic with information, examples and some practice exercises. You can find it here.

The Cambridge Dictionary has a helpful page on the topic as well. You can find that here.

I think a question about cafe in task 2 is confusing. Isn't a place where constantly come only 3 person, which invite two more person, may consider popular? It seems before Johnny's coming in cafe there was only Olivia.

Hello krig,

I think you are right. We're going to be revising this section later this year and I'll make a note of this so that we can improve this question at that point.

Thanks very much for pointing this out to us and I'm sorry for the confusion!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
