I listened three times.Then I worked on all the tasks.The result is not perfect, but I'm quite happy. Thank you.


It was very difficult to me, I wil try again in the future. Thanks.

Hi The LearnEnglish Team,

Can you tell me, what's the meaning of "you on your own", please.


Hi hakimanh,

This is an informal phrase meaning the same as Are you on your own?


In very informal speech we often use sentences with a rising intonation in place of yes/no questions:

You from here? = Are you from here?

You know him? = Do you know him?


The intonation is important to make it clear that you are asking a question!

I'm a professional translator of English so I myself don't need to learn English conversation any more, but it's still fun to listen to these courses. And it is amazing that you offer these courses for free, thanks all of you. I'd love to continue to go on these lessons.

Am very satisfied with this fantastic online courses thanks all of you #brithishcouncil

Thanks to British council that gives all of us the possibility to learn English for free. This web is well structured and very simple to follow. I've been studying English for years spending loads of money attending courses and buying books, simply because I had never believed that courses like this might help you to boost your English, But, now that I have discovered and studied a bit of it, I have to change my idea. Once again, many thanks.

hi there ,

i am learning english from these episodes. My question is "That’s three job offers I've had in the last five minutes! "

What is that meaning for I've had ?

Hi xalphonse,

The phrase I've had here means I have received. We often use 'have' in place of other verbs like 'eat' (have a meal), 'drink' (have a coffee), 'take' (have a bath), for example.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

That is very insteresting)
