Hello! Is this sentece correct gramatically? Compare Fred’s life before with Fred’s life after his TV broke.
(Context is:Fred was cough potato before,then his TV broke and after it his life changed.)

Hi mehinaydinli,

That works, though I think a clearer way to say it is 'Compare Fred's life before his TV broke with his life after his TV broke' or 'Compare Fred's life before and after his TV broke'.

Hello!Can you help me?Ican't understand the meaning of records in this sentence?Nobody makes kids buy records or clothes.

Hello mehinaydinli,

You can find 'records' in our dictionary (on the lower right). The meaning that is used here is the one that you'll see under MUSIC in the dictionary entry. I think that will clarify this for you, but if not, let us know.

Best wishes,

hi there what squeeze you in mean?

Hi qusai afana,

You can find a definition and example of this in our dictionary by searching for 'squeeze in' - you'll see that 'to squeeze someone in' means to find time in a busy schedule to see, help or provide a service for someone. In this case, Harry says he can help Olivia, even though he's very busy.

Hello. It's the first time to join this site. In this story there are lots of people , so I couldn't distinguish who are talking. After the first listening, I check the script and listen again and again. I enjoy the story and I will keep learning English.

Hello i'm new here

Hi, guys I am really appreciated about all of your efforts for non-english people :) I would like to ask two questions that I couldn't understand well as yet.

1. Olivia- I wouldn't want to overwork you!
Harry- we will see eh?

Above converstions, I couldn't understand what Harry said means..

2. Fadi- I will just have to try and solve all yours problems then, won't I??

I couldn't know " won't I"

Hello,

I'm happy to hear you find LearnEnglish useful.

1) Look up 'see' in our online dictionary (at the right-hand side of the page) and scroll down to 'We'll (have to) see'. That should give you the answer.

2) Have a look at this page which should answer your question:
http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/grammar-reference/question-tags

Let us know if any of that is unclear.
