Hello ChandraParema,

You can find the answers to vocabulary questions like this by using our Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool. Just type 'what have you got to lose' into the search window and click 'Look it up!' to get a definition, grammatical information and more. It's a very useful tool.

Best wishes,

hello ! what does the phrase ( don't lose any sleep over it ) mean ? and why did she use it ? i've used the dicionary but it's not clear to me !
thanks alot :)

Hello Bobbos,

It means 'don't worry too much about it'. The idea is that something that makes us worry a lot often makes it difficult for us to sleep, as we keep thinking about it instead of relaxing and falling asleep. In this case, Olivia is explaining to Harry that she won't be hurt if he doesn't have time to create her website.

All the best,

I have a doubt:
Why she said "too dark, or too far away, or too expensive..." and not "very dark, very far away, or very expensive"? When we use TOO or VERY?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ana,

This topic is explained in the last section of Elementary Podcast Series 2 Episode 3 (at 21:31, Tom the teacher) and also in the Word on the Street York Scene 2 Language Focus (starting at 3:10). I think those explanations will clear this up for you, but if not, please let us know.

All the best,

Hi guys,

I have a question for you:

''.sit down and I’ll bring them over to you.''

Them over to you means ''I bring the coffees on the table? isn't it?

Hi visfont,

It means 'I'll bring them to your table' - in other words, the customers don't have to wait by the bar but can sit down and wait for their drinks.

Best wishes,

Hi StrangeGr,

I'm afraid you'll need to use a dictionary for looking up items such as these. Our role here is to help users with the material that we have on the site, and to provide some (as far as time allows) help with learning English more generally. We can't offer a service explaining any and all vocabulary which you happen to find while reading texts from elsewhere as we simply don't have the time to do this.

You are quite welcome to post your questions here, of course, and perhaps one of the other users will be able to help you. I would, however, ask that your question be posted on a relevant page rather than just any page as, firstly, it is more likely to get an answer that way and, secondly, it keeps the site well organised and, thus, more useful for all users.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
