Can you tell the meaning of sentence "There's got to be a catch.."? I cannot understand

Hell ThaiDoanHung,

The meaning is something like 'There must be some trick here'. It's used when a proposal seems too good to be true, and you are suspicious of some hidden aspect.

There are many online dictionaries which will provide you with definitions of such phrases. Simply type 'There's got to be a catch meaning' into your search engine and you will see many links.

Hello,Kirk. It is a funny lesson. but i have a problem with the word architect. I don't know how to speak. i try to listen more then twice. And still can't speak it. I can reading and writing,but most of time i don't know how to speak. Could you tell me how to do?

Hello Wendy1988,

You can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online to check the pronunciation of a word as well as its meaning. Just type the word into the search box and click 'Look it up!' You'll see a little icon next to the word which you can click to hear the pronunciation. Sometimes there is more than one icon and you can hear both the British and American pronunciations.

could you help me, please? what does that sentence mean?
" Where are you off to? "

Hello hoavt198,

'to be off' means 'to leave' or 'to go', so this means 'Where are you going?'

Hi eversione,
I want share my great exeperience on british council website.
I use this method of study since around six month ago and i see my results every day, when I listen the lessons I open two windows on my desktop, in one side I listen and in the other side i read the translate so i Can read and listen in The same time : ) i think that this Can be a good way To improve both write and pronuntiation.
I always repeat At The high voice The sentences so i Can recording Very well the sound And improve both, speaking And writing.

Hi everybody! Sorry, I don't understand why Magda says "Well, I’ve got an interview with a small architect’s practice next week...", I mean, why she uses the present perfect (I've got) for a future event?

Hello Laura,

Actually, 'I've got' is not the present perfect but rather the form 'have got', which means much the same as 'has', i.e. Magda could also have said 'I have an interview next week'. The video on this Word on the Street page might help clear this up for you – please take a look.
