It's a great way to learn about the country which i'm aiming for, and also to learn basic grammar english.

Many thanks for the material !!!

I want to study more

i can't access the whole task for history and whats fashionable in camden. i was able to anser only the first 3 questions. what can i do to get the other remaining ones ?

Hello clart,

I'm not sure which task you mean here. Do you mean the task headed 'Task'? If so, then there are three categories ('Punk', 'London Fashion Week' and 'Cyber-goth') and you have to put each phrase into one of these three categories; there are no other questions.


Best wishes,

oh I got it. Thank you.

Hi team. I have a question.
Why the first market is called Camden Lock because it was next to the canal?

Hello SPM,

Yes, the markets in Camden are often called 'Camden Market' or 'Camden Lock', which refers to their location near the Camden Lock. You can find out loads more about all of this in the Camden Market and Camden Lock Wikipedia entries if you're interested!

All the best,

Hi Sir! In the above reply, you have used the word 'loads', you mean 'lots of' here?

Hello Akbar Safi,

Yes, that's correct. See the Cambridge Dictionary entry for 'loads' for more examples -- you have look in the second half of the definition.
