Countryside life is hard but it is better than city life. You must work hard there. You must collect eggs. You must look after animals...

Hi, what is the meaning of this expression "breakfast is out of the way"

Hi monaia,

You can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online to check items of vocabulary. Just type the phrase ('get out of the way') into the search window and click 'Look it up!' to get a definition, example, pronunciation and more.

Hello, Teachers. I am stduent from mainland of China. I just cannot play the video on line. I wonder if there is a solution on this question.

Hello yupeter,

I'd suggest you install the Adobe Flash Player on your device, even if you already have it installed. This usually solves video problems, but if not you could also try viewing this page in a different browser. If neither of those ideas work, please let us know what browser version you're using and we'll do our best to help you.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thank you very much

Hello Teachers ,

When Ashlie prepares the breakfast she says : As soosn as breakfast is out of the way , we've got to do some work .
Will it be the same if we say : As soon as we finish with the breakfast , we've got to do some work ?

Thank you ,

Best wishes ,
