Thank you teacher for your useful and kind reply!

Sorry, here is a comment not related to English learning, but suddenly came to my view. Is that a ness or sth else in the lake from the video clips from 30 to 35 seconds? Feeling weird and curious on that moving creature.

Hi teacher.So "Nick looks at the four nations that make up the UK".This sentence is in green part.

Hello ayka91,

I'm afraid I still don't see that on this page, but in any case, now that I can see the sentence, I can tell you that 'Nick' is a common English name. Often, it's a familiar form of the name 'Nicholas'.

All the best,

Hi dear the LE team.
i dont understand what is NICK ?What that mean .Thanks indeed

Hello ayka91,

You can find definitions and examples of words in the Cambridge Dictionary. Please note that most words have more than one use or meaning, so you should read through all the entries carefully to find the one that makes the most sense.

In any case, I'm afraid I don't see the word 'nick' anywhere on this page. If I've missed it, please tell me where you've seen it.

All the best,

I really enjoyed, but in general, it is still a little hard to understand all with no transcription. I loved the idea of visiting there.
And Tartan was really a mistery on my mind. Funny when I realized i laughed a lot.

Wonderful Scotland! I hope it will remain in Europe.

I love a place, it's on the top of a little mountain. And from there, you can see the whole city with its bays, the Nickel plant. Nature and industrialisation.

Dear the LE team,

Ashlie often says "let's get going" when she really wants to go, particularly together with Stephen. Is it right that this sentence has the same meaning with "let's go"? Can you please explain the difference between them?
Is it just the way that native English speaker often use?
Many thanks.
