Hi the team,

What did Steven say at the end of the video ?

Best regards,

Stéphane

Hello Stephane

He says 'It's matasak, in Persian.' and then 'I'll see you later, Rob.'

All the best

Best regards,

Why we say " Pietro didn't pass his exam. he shuld have studied harder " and we don't say " he should has studied harder " . thanks

Hello M.A.KH,

Should have is an example of a perfect modal verb and these verbs do not change their form. We use 'have' in all such examples:

should have

would have

won't have

could have

etc.

Scarecrow is spaventapasseri in italian, a very long word!

scarecrow means korkuluk in Turkish

I think we use "go along" if the thing is long,
and "go across" if it is not long.

is my perception right?

Hello Rama Santoso,

Not exactly. Please see my response to shams just a bit further down this page, where I explain this difference in more detail.
