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 kirk,
please help me with the following. Have a look at the following.
1) I am three.
2) I am three and a half.
3) I am two and a half three.
Now, could you tell me please, what's meant by 'two and a half three'?

Thanks in advance

Hello Sahaya princiya,

Please read the What are the comment sections for? section on our Help page, where you can see that our ability to answer questions such as these, which are unrelated to the page, is limited. 

In any case, I'm afraid I can't help you, as that phrase doesn't make any sense to me!

Hi,
plz help me with the following
'I made my birthday cake with ivory colour to match in with the theme'. Recently, I've read this from uk blog. What does it really mean. I looked it up in the dictionary. But there is no response for this.
Thanks in advance

Was it a little bit hard.

It was little bit hard, too.

Hiya,

I was wondering what is the meaning of 'your shot' in the last sentence said by Nick:
Good advice. Your shot.

I looked it up in some dictionaries but I still can not understand the meaning.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Elibatrez,

In pool, billiards and snooker you play by taking 'shots' at the balls, so when Nick says 'your shot' he means 'your turn'.

Hello safira3,

I couldn't find the word 'stuff' in the transcript. Could you tell us where you heard or saw it? By the way, I expect that you can find the meaning in the dictionary entry for 'stuff'.

All the best,

could you please help me to understand this meaning " just get really caught up and just live in the library " Is that mean to learn and discuss the newest facts about something .
