I think he goes to the riverside.
I think they talk about Oxford and its beautiful places
I think he is going to buy a present for Ashlie

I think Stephen will stay around the Oxford University's buildings, especially the library. He's going to talk about his driving test, cars, sports and his studies as well.

Sthephen will be waiting his sister Ashly's call.

I think, he goes to the riverside and talks to the students who he have met, about driving test and Oxford. Also he buys a present for Ashlie or he decides to eat a lunch with her.

maybe stephen tries to communicate with oxford information department to learn about what he can do.

when he meets with the students he asks for what activities he can do and what are their experiencies in oxford university.

maybe he is going to invite her to drink a cup of coffee when she has finished the exam

Hi Team. Could you help me to check this one, please?
Stephen : How many colleges are there?
Tourist Lady : There's around 39.
Stephen ask question with the auxilary "are" but why the lady tourist answer with "s"?
Thank you very much.

Hello Nizam,

In informal speech, sometimes people say 'there is' when the standard form would be 'there are'. I wouldn't recommend that you speak this way, but it's good to know that some native speakers do.

Ok then, thanks a million Kirk.

Could you please help me with 'I've somewhere i want to take you'..

could Ashlie ask like 'can i go first'? instead of 'can i have a go first'..which one is more appropriate?

Hello Vartica,

'have a go' means 'try' and 'go' can mean 'have a turn' in a context like this one. So really either one works in this situation, but in others only one might work.
