Hi teacher.. could you explain this to me?
Britain [has it all]. -> If I exchange 'Britain'(singular pronoun) to 'They'(plural), can I just say: 'They [have it all]'? If I was wrong, can you tell me the right sentence I have to use? :)
I'll wait your reply, sir. Thank you

Hi fernandd,

That is correct!

Hello ! could you tell me what is the meaning of (a 133 metre tall steel arch which is also 315 metres across) I understand that it is 133 meter tall so What does 315 meters refer to ??? Thanks . I think you could say it is a silly question but u really don't know

Hello littlemoon86,

'133 metres tall' refers to the height, while '315 metres across' refers to the width.

I hope that answers your question and remember that, as we say in English, there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers.  In other words, if you don't know something then a question is a good idea, whatever it is about.

Hi fshspp,

I'm afraid that the Britain is Great videos are not available for download! I hope you can find something suitable elsewhere.

Dear Team Leader,

Please advise which of the following is correct or more standard:

1. The pushcart was fitted with a stove and wok for deep-frying fritters.
2. The pushcart was fitted with a stove and wok to deep-fry fritters.


Yours sincerely,

Chen laifa


Both of these are grammatically correct and have a similar meaning. The first is the more common form in most contexts.
