Thank you very much Kirk

Hi, I don't understand what the preposition "with" means in the phrase: "It’s very popular with tourists and students." In this wording are "with" the same meaning of "among"? Thanks for help!

Hello rbrt,

Yes, that's correct: both among and with are commonly used with the adjective popular in sentences like this one. If you look up popular in our dictionary (see the search box on the lower right), you'll see several examples of how it is used.

Hello, everybody:) i really loved this section. The video paints a vivid picture of life in the Oxford university. It makes me wanna go there. I have one question. I wonder what that phrase means. 'share a flat'. Thank you for your answer.  

Hi silverwing,
I'm glad you enjoyed the video. Have you seen the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box on the right? You can use it to look up words that you don't know.
A flat is a group of rooms that people live in, usually inside a bigger building. People who share a flat live together in the same flat.
Best wishes,
