Hi! Could you explain the part of a sentence "there are plenty more episodes to come". I know what means every word, but I don't understand meaning (sense) of the phrase, especially "episodes to come". Noun + infinitive?
Thanks a million!

Hello Daria,

Some nouns can be followed by some infinitives in this way, but there's no easy way to learn them – they are best learned on a case-by-case basis, i.e. as you find them. 'episodes to come' means that there will be episodes in the future – the idea is that the future 'is coming'. So all together, this phrase is inviting you to keep listening to Elementary Podcasts, because a new one is going to be released every week until February 2016. Episode 12 is coming on 20 October!

All the best,

Hi everyone. There are buses, taxis, subway, cars and a lot of motorcycles in my Country. I have a car and I usually transport me in it. Here the gas service is very cheap, and very much people have cars. I generates a terrible traffic in some hours, but always is most confortable to transport you in your car.

My favorite transport is my car! I like driving my car very much

Hello everyone. I'm Hoa and I come from Vietnam. I live in Hanoi, is the capital in Vietnam. My favourite transport is motorbike because i can use it to go trekking. It's absolutely fascinating. Everyday, I go to British Council by motorbike because my house is so far from there. I hate using motorbike because the road in Hanoi is terrible. It's congested road, have many pot holes. I'm going to be late. I'm help up in traffic in the rush hour. I have to overtake or undertake the car, buses and other motorbike to pass the cowd. One of the most emblemtic forms of transport in Hanoi if cyclo. Tourists really like using it. It has only in Vietnam. It's so interesting.

I don't understand clearly this sentence "Its took me ages to get here this morning". Could you explain for me, please?

Hello khanhhoabg94,

If you look up 'ages' in the dictionary, you'll see it means 'a long time'. 'take' is often used to talk about the amount of time spent doing something. So 'it took me ages to get here' means I needed a long time to get here.
