I love going to theme parks so i wish i could visit ones as soon as possible and having a lots of fun there.

Hi,
The man whose Stephen talked to said,it were crazy, why not it was crazy?
And what is meaning "there is no way ,I'm going on it".?

Hello dlis,

The man who Stephen speaks to has a northern English accent - I would say that it is some part of Yorkshire - and in his dialect it is not uncommon to use 'were' in this way. Dialects often use non-standard grammar, and this is an example.

'There is no way I'm going on it' means that there is no chance of it happening. In other words, the person is saying that they don't want to go on it and nothing can make them change their mind.

 

Best wishes,

Peter

I don't like going to theme parks or amusement parks, because I think these are too chaotic for my liking.
The rides make me feel very light and free.
I like a lot going to the beach ever since I was a baby and I like above all bathing in the sea.
When I go to the seaside, I bathe, I read my books lying down on the beach chair and I chat with my friends.

i love theme parks and amusement parks . i love going to the seaside too . i like the feeling when i swim and participate in interesting actions with my family . It's so amazing !!!

Hello everyone! I really love amusement park and I love the beach too. I live in São Paulo, Brazil and my city is near to the seaside. It takes about 45 minutes from my city to the Santos, the city on seaside, so I frequently go to the beach with friends.

I like to go to amusement parks, but only to see and listen how people enjoy them, We don't have permanent amusement parks only when they come from overseas and installs here for a time, the same is with circuses.

Me and my family live far away from the beach, for that reason when we travel there, is exciting. I love to feel the fresh air on my face, smell, see and listen nature; like sand over your feet, the sun over your body, the scenery is beautiful, and of course the most important to me is to see people enjoying and forgetting all the troubles for a while. Share with your extended family, like mine, it doesn't has any price. We are preparing an important family meeting on next vacation.

I like amusement parks but actually I don't often go there. I prefer going to the seaside tha going to the amusement park, I like swimming, watching the sea, collecting seashells, eating something at the seaside.

I really like going to beach. When I go the seaside generally I read books and sunbathe

Dear BC team!
I am confused. Why " have a go?"
"Come on Ash, shall we have a go? Or "You can have a go on that if you want"
I really didn't understand. Is it specific rule or something else?

Thank you in advance
Samira
