What to say to a boyfriend when he lazes around in the house.


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activities. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.





I would say to him that if he wanted to be with me, He must change his conduct.
I think that this video is very funny and very useful, I like so much this section :D

Hello Littlemoon86,
Have you tried looking this word up in the dictionary? If so, does the answer seem confusing or unclear in any way? Remember, we have a dictionary on almost every page of LearnEnglish.

I looked it up , I think It means for a short period of time. "can you tidy up a bit? . Thanks

Hello, I´m new to this site. I don´t know if this is the right place to post a comment, so forgive me if it isn´t:
My question is about the following phrase:
"I did not know about John´s early departure".
Could it be in some way understood as -by example- that John is dead? ("I did not know John is dead")
(besides any other more frequent meaning like leaving, even from a job).
I searched the online Dictionaries, only in one case I found that decease might be used as a synonim for departure.
I thank in advance any kind of help regarding this subject.
Greetings from Buenos Aires

Hello Gabriela,
The context of the sentence is important, because it is possible, in certain contexts, that someone might use the word 'departure' as a euphemism for talking about death.  However, this does seem very unlikely to me in this case.  I think the sentence almost certainly describes someone leaving earlier than expected, perhaps leaving a house, perhaps a party, perhaps a city or a country.
I hope that helps you.
