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.

Hello Laura1240,

'See you later' is used as a general way of saying 'goodbye'. It doesn't have to mean that you will see the person again that day.

Hello Teachers ,

Sorry , but I can't quite get what Stephen means saying : It looks like it's just me and you , kid . May be he wants to say that only they both / he and Ashlie / have left for the dancing club ?

Thank you ,

Best regards ,

Hello iliya_b,

Yes, that's right – he's just saying that of their original group, only he and Ashlie are left.

Hi,
Can users in China watch these videos? I'd really like to recommend them to my Chinese learners.

Best,

Hello bcbbcmm,

Yes, users in China are welcome to watch Word on the Street videos. They may not work on some portable devices that are not compatible with Adobe Flash (e.g. most iOS devices), but as long as your devices have the Adobe Flash player installed, they should work.

All the best,

Hello The LearnEnglish Team,

"How’s things?"-- why do we use the singular form "is" here rather than"are"?

Hello bcbbcmm,

This is an example of a fixed expression which does not change. Such expressions, which include some idioms, sayings, proverbs and more, grow up over time and are often ungrammatical - like this one. It is also fine to say 'How are things?' but it is less common.

Best wishes,
