Night Out Scene 1

Stephen and Ashlie meet up with some friends for a night out in London. Will they manage to find a venue that everyone will enjoy?

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

In my opinion, Comprehension Task 3 doesn't make sense, every country has their different culture about these three events (party, concert, and club).
In my country, Indonesia, at a concert: the music is very loud and there isn't any food as well, whereas our party usually finishes before 11 pm. So, I think there isn't a wrong or right answer in Task 3, It depends on our habit in different countries.


What does "Have a good night- TAKE CARE " mean?


You can look up 'take care' in our online dictionary at the right-hand side of the page.

Hello there
Ashley used the word " trope" have seen the dictionery it means figuratively but what does it mean here ?

Hello AbdulMohsin,

I think you must have misheard Ashlie as I can't see that word anywhere in the transcript (click on the 'transcript' link under the video window to see this). There is a word 'trope' which is used in relation to literary analysis with the meaning you give, but it does not appear here.

Hey plz, just could you explain to me the meaning of "awful??
?" and when we can use it?

Hello everybody
Everything correct except that Ashlie and Stephen have gone out for dinner with their friends Then I answered it's True but computer says it's false.

Hello council Erlan,

It is false, I'm afraid.  Ashlie and Stephen don't go out for dinner; they go out for a drink to a pub.

Could you explain what " hit the town" means ??

Hi The LearnEnglish Team,
Ashlie says, 'Just round the corner'. May I know if it is the same as 'Right around the corner' and which one is more common please?
