What is hygge ?

Hello May Thida Su,

The Wikipedia is a great resource for this kind of question -- please see their Hygge article. Just to be clear, this word is Danish or Norwegian, though English speakers occasionally use it.

All the best,

I want to know the difference between " search " and " find " .....

Hello May Thida Su,

When you search, you try to find something. For example, a few planes that have crashed in the sea have never been found. Rescue workers searched for them, but in some cases, never found them.

I hope that such crashes never happen again, and only mention them as an example to help you understand.

All the best,

Dear Team,
I agree with all listeners have commented about the potential difficulties and riddles in connection with hearing, listening and tracking the correct spelling and meaning of the words and letters.(Compared with the corresponding text and level.) I mean, the texts are easily manipulable for reading and grammar, ranking with level B1- for example- but many times, taking in mind the listening with an informal, strange or high speed pronunciation, seem to be in higher levels, because of this reason.Anyway, I'm sure you have noticed it, you know better how to organise the stuff and introduce us, little by little, into the listening of real live English.This is the most important work you offer to all of us, which no one else could do in any ''formal''school or course, even in paid courses.
Thanks a lot all of you

Thank you!

I don't understand this sentence. "Stephen’s brought his friend Jazz over to London for a few days". It is passive? Stephen's brought=stephen is brought?
Can you explain for me, please? Thank you so much.

Hi tunguyenprnt

'Stephen's brought' is a contracted form of 'Stephen has brought', which is the present perfect. 's can be used to indicate possession, as a contraction for 'is' and also as a contraction for 'has'.

All the best

When I went to city I prefer to look around the streets, architecture, people, etc.
Also I like to visiting museums and trade centers.

Hello,
Why the level of this video is B1? There are many things I can't undertand without the transcription.
Thanks
