Hello Celio_Morais,

I'm not sure I quite understand your question. Ashlie forgot to take her bag, so it was just a problem with her memory!


Best wishes,

I think that guys must have attention to her and the text should have emphasized (???) this attitude.

Thank you Mr. Kirk.

Thanks a lot for this kind of materials, they are very close to real films.
Could you please, answer this queston? I m sorry the question isn t about the video.
I ve heard: for example; 'at half eight' Does it mean half past eight or half past seven? Thanks a lot.

Best wishes.

Hello Must,

Good question! 'half eight' is a short form of 'half past eight' (8:30): 'half' is an abbreviation of 'half past'. This is very common in British English, but not so much in, for example, American English.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

The Girl so Cute, that's why I like her more than 2 guys.. She smiled so pretty.. Love her :))

I take lots of photos, eat some local foods,buy souvenirs and talk to natives (If I can) . I love visiting old towns because I like natural beauties very much and I like seeing people's life who have lived there and of course historical places like castles, churches,mosques, palaces etc :)

Two boys are leaving a girl carryin a big luggage. Strange!

I like to visit touristic and cultural points and to know restaurants and cafes.

ı love having a rest and ı love swimming when ı go holiday. ı don't like historical place
