dear British council,would you mind tell me about this sentence which Ashlie said in last part please?
.......what on earth r u wear?........that was sth like this,what does it mean?

Hello sinakabiri!

Ashlie says What on earth are you wearing? in Dating Scene 2.

If you look up 'What on earth...' in our dictionary, you'll see we use 'What/Why/How on earth...' to show we are very surprised, confused, or angry. Here, Ashlie is very surprised by Steven's clothes.

As another example, if a mother sees her child doing something very naughty, she might ask 'What on earth are you doing?' to show she is very angry and surprised.

Hope that helps - but please ask questions on the page your question is about!

Hi sinakabiri -

Please remember we're a small team. We try to answer everyone's questions, but it does take us time - we certainly can't promise to do it in one day!

Hello Hussein,

Thank you for trying to clarify this - it's great to see users helping each other like this. However, as my answer above states, this is not a standard phrase in English and rather is the result of the text being misheard.

Thanks again and good luck with your learning.

Best wishes,
