You're right: Carlos wants a bigger challenge. 
This isn't really an idiom because the meaning is fairly clear form the words themselves - That's why you understood it! Idioms are often difficult or impossible to understand and use without learning their context and definition.

I was wondering if you could put a section to further the writing abilities of learners. You know, something like  flash exercises with blanked words to complete and items like that.

all the best,

Hello Mohammad,

That's an interesting idea. We have quite a lot of exercises with blanked-out words, but most of them are focussing on grammar or vocabulary, rather than writing itself. We have a lot of new content coming onto the site over the next few months, but I will keep your idea at the back of my mind for when things are quieter!

Thanks again.

Best wishes,

What means "What are you lot doing?". My problem is "lot".

Thank you

I think it means

what are you doing more?


The word 'lot' has many meanings, but here it is a plural noun meaning a group of people.

I hope that helps.

Best wishes,
