hello . I like it so much .It is very interesting to learn English that way :)) Thanks for all the team for your efforts . I would like to ask something ,I always hear when they call Stephen . I hear it Steven with pronouncing Ph as V not F . it is true or I have heard it wrongly ?? Thanks a million.

Hello littlemoon86,

Thank you for the nice comment.  You heard the pronunication correctly: Stephen is pronounced with a /v/ sound in the middle.  In fact, it has two spellings - the other is 'Steven', and both versions are shortened to 'Steve'.

Best wishes,

Hi, i'd like to ask about what's sprout? I have never seen them before, and why did people eat it in the christmas dinner?

Hello angelali,

Sprouts are small vegetables that are a part of traditional Sunday dinners (and Christmas dinners) in Britain. Often called 'Brussel sprouts', they look like minature cabbages and are usually boiled in water.  People eat them because they are tasty and healthy!

hi l just wantto know what's it mean this sentence""it suits you""

Hi samiasamou,

'It suits you' is usually used to talk about clothes and it means that they (the clothes) look good on you.  Here, the comment is about a hat - the hat suits Stephen (he looks good with it on his head).

Best wishes,

I think it is wrong decision, if you are using sprouts for a special meal. Because of it smells really terrible. :)
