Hello Ahmadwazeer,

'I'm driving home' means that she wants to be the driver instead of the passenger. This is why she says 'give me the keys'.

Thanks peter and Kirk, I got it :)

  1.                                 thanks a lot Peter

yes you are right

  1. Hello all  
  2. what is the meaning of " loads of  stuff
  3. Is it mean many thinks ?

Hello ali k.

Yes, that's more or less what it means.  The closest way to paraphrase it would be 'many things' and it is an informal way to say this, quite common in colloquial conversations between friends, for example.

I think I would like to open this page and answer all the task, just spend my time.

It was really useful, Thank u so much

Hello , I really like this series so much. It's so interesting and useful. I learnt loads of expression and i know more about Britain by this amazing series.
I have may be  a silly Question but I have to understand .
In the sentence ( let's find out a little bit more ) in the transcript. what is the meaning of " little and bit "  Can we say let's find out more ? instead of let's find out a little bit more .? what is the additional meaning of ( little -bit ) in the sentence?
another one is that why in the transcript Stephen asked ( how many colleges are there? the answer is ( There is ..... not There are .....)
Thanks a lot for assistance and help  for all my questions in all the podcasts and series.

Hi littlemoon86,
We're glad to hear you enjoy Word on the Street!
a little, a bit, and a little bit all essentially mean the same thing. It would be fine to say "let's find out more". The difference between "let's find out more" and "let's find out a little bit more" is simply that in the second sentence, Stephen isn't talking about finding out a lot more, just a little bit more. You might want to look at our page on quantifiers for more information on this topic.
As for "There's around 39", good catch! Sometimes in informal speech, people say there is, even with plural nouns. I wouldn't recommend that you copy this, but it is something you can hear people say sometimes.
Best wishes,
