Hello innocentashish420,

I'm afraid this is far too broad a question for us to answer. 'That' has many uses and functions in sentences and it is not possible for us to explain them all in the comment sections. You can use the Online Dictionary to search for 'that' and see many examples.

Best wishes,

Hi Guys I have a question and I really need your help
I was wondering about the difference between "go" and "go out"

Hello gattous887,

I'm afraid this is a very broad question: 'go' has a very wide range of meanings. Please take a look in the online dictionary on the right of this page to see the various meanings and uses of 'go' and 'go out'. Then if you have any concrete questions about specific examples we'll be happy to help.

Best wishes,

Hello
anyone can tell me what did he say " it's quite ...." at 01:09 ??
thank you

Hello Flyn dance,

Rob says "It's quite tricky, but if you're a learner and you hear something like this... then you know it's talking about the past, and it happened more than once, or for some time".

Best wishes,

hello , I have a problem to see that video , It is the first time for me to face that problem in that wonderful site. it appears a sentence (video format or MIME type is not supported ) what should I do to be able to watch the video?

Hi littlemoon86,

This means that the browser or device you are using doesn't know how to display the video. Sometimes this problem disappears on its own, but sometimes it can be related to a change in your hardware or software. Have you changed your computer or browser recently? If so, what kind are you using?

I just watched the video without any problems, so I think you should be able to see it soon.
