Hello Will Smile Li,

Ashlie could also just say 'I have to go back' here and that would be fine. 'going to have to' expresses a bit of annoyance than the present simple does, but essentially the meaning is the same.

All the best,

I am a new student so my question is where i start the lesson or level one i am confusing
Thanks every think

I am Turkish but I understand English very well

i wondered if i could ask you a question not related to this lesson? So, today when i heard cnn news, i came across two phrases that i'm was confusing about theirs meaning. These are : snapping at one's heels and when a challenge comes along, you must whippet. Hoping you will help me to deal with two difficult phrases above. Thanks very much!

Hello quynhhuong,

Have you tried looking up these phrases in an online dictionary? You can find the definitions of phrases with examples and grammatical information. For example, whip something (see #6) and snap at someone's heels.


Best wishes,

I like to walk, to see the most important buildings, to try tradicional food of the city.

when i will visit a city, i hope to eat the traditional food,see the traditional places, dance the traditional music. go to te park and try to be in touch with the local people and learn a lot of about his culture. i am from Colombia, my english is not the best. thanks for help me with this

Very interesting city. I've been there some years ago. Many thanks for helping with english.
Good job!

It's amazing perhaps more than really walking around there in London. I have been to Paris Berlin and Istanbul,I wish visit London this year.

When I go on a "tour of the city", I visit the place, the main buildings and monuments with a guide.
Usually, we go to the zoo and aquarium if it's a big city. We like to eat in good restaurants serving local food. We go shopping too. We like Museums of Natural History.
