Hi Adam: 
I don't like to reply your comment about this video. I only choose one answer to translate to Spanish the words "barking mad". Would do you like to explain what does it mean? 
I saw that BBC have had one program about pets with the title "Barking mad"... but a girl that is barking mad?... a crazy person?... 
Thanks a lot. Carmen

Hello nice honey,

This is an example of a perfect modal construction, which is formed as follows:

modal verb + have + past participle

The word 'have' here is part of the perfect modal form, not a normal main verb, and so it does not change form.

Best wishes,

  ,hi every body, I have a question   I want to know the meaning of the word 
"gosh" and if it has the same meaning of word "Oh my God"

Hi,
You can find the meaning of this word by using the Cambridge Dictionaries Online box at the right hand side of the page. You can then look up "oh my God" and compare the two.
Best wishes,

Hello,
 I was wondering if you can put more "Words on the streets" with the same characters; their accent is very helpful to me! Moreover, what's the title of 2nd song in  "Transport and Travel Scene 1"  ?
 
Thanks a million!

Hello,
Yes, there will be another series of Word on the Street!
What time in the clip is the music you are talking about?
Best wishes,

Well, I look forward to watching the new series! The song I'm talking about starts at 00:46.
Thanks.

Hello,
Sorry, I don't know the name of that song. I don't think it's very popular.
Best wishes,
