i want to meet with ashlie and visiting london

Loan Nguyen - it means lots of different things

Hello there!
I can't understand the meaning of "loads" in Ashlie's sentence: "Oh, and the weather’s so good, we’ll be able to see loads.". Could anybody help me please?
Thanks for your concerning!

Hello Loan, and welcome to LearnEnglish!
In answer to your question, as MariaMilano says below, loads is an informal way of saying a lot. You can see this if you check loads (noun) in our Cambridge Online Dictionary box, as well as if you have a look at the Oxford dictionary. Hope that helps!

Hello Loan Nguyen!
You've asked so interesting question for me too! Thanks a lot!
There's what I've found in my Oxford Dictionary:
loads (of sth) - informal - a lot of sth. For example, there are loads of things to do in London in the evenings.
I think the phrase "we'll be able to see loads" has the same meaning - a lot of...
I hope it will help.
Have a nice day!

I like this site. it's very good for me.

Hello. I am from Azerbaijan. My students like these games and exercises. And they advise their friends to create accounts here. thank u

You say that "I've been twice to Rome this year" is unfinished action. There is something I don't understand here. Because he's been there twice so it's over isn't it? Couldn't we say " I went to Rome twice this year" too? In that case, what would the difference be?
Thanks for your help!

This question is a bit confusing for other users, because you're asking about an exercise on a different page from this one. Can you please ask your question again on that page?
Many thanks!
