Hello sambala,

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, 'hot desk' is a noun and 'hot-desk' is a verb. When you work in an office that hot-desks, you don't have a desk to yourself - you use whatever desk and computer you prefer. If you search the internet for 'hot desk' you'll find lots of articles about it.

Please be sure to check the Cambridge Dictionary for vocabulary in the future.

All the best,

hi there
what does this sentence " I'll have to " mean?

Hello mood93,

'Have to' is a modal verb denoting obligation. It is similar to 'must'.

If you look for modal verbs in the grammar section of the site then you will see information on 'have to', with examples and practice exercises.

I know this isn't related to the topic but I'm not sure where to find answer to this.
I searched for the word 'often' in the online dictionary and the way it is pronounced is the same for british and american accents although sometimes I hear it with pronouncing the 't' letter. Is it a different accent?
Thank you

Hello AhmadSayed87,

There are many geographical and social dialects within the broad geographical categories of 'British' and 'American', and some of these will pronounce the 't' sound whiles others will not. As long as you are consistent and clear in your pronunciation it does not matter which version you say.
