Hi The LearnEnglish Team,

It makes me a little confuse ,the word "Though" in the sentence ”Got to go right now...just to the doctor’s though, he’s having another look at my leg, making sure it’s ok...“ What's the meaning of it ?
Thanks!

Hello Doris Jiang,

Another way to say this is something like 'Got to go, but just to the doctor's'. I suppose Johnny means he's not going to work and is instead going to the doctor's.

All the best,

Hi there !
What the difference between " I don't get to see you much " and " I don't see you much " ?
The first is more popular ?
Thanks a lot Learning English Team.

Hello PhuongHoang,

The sentence with don't get to suggests that the speaker is prevented from doing something that he or she would like to do. It has a similar meaning to don't get the chance to.

The second sentence does not imply any reason for the situation.

In the context of two friends talking I think you could use either and there would be no real difference in meaning because we assume that friends would like to see each other without having to say it.

Thank you very much indeed !
It's really helpful.

Thanks for the episode.

Hi everyone
In Task 3, is the word "accidently" correctly spelled? Shouldn't be "accidentally"?

Hello AliMir
Yes, you are right. I'm sorry for the confusion and please know that I've fixed the misspelling. Thanks very much for taking the time to point this out to us!
All the best

very nice

Hi, there! I've just listened to the story. Breaking legs seems to be terrible, I've never broken any of my bones in my whole life. But recently, I often fall down and hit my legs, fortunately I didn't break my legs... I have to be careful! And I'd like to give Magda my cheer!
