Hello geortheo,

'I'm off to' is a colloquial expression. It is short for 'I'm heading off to' and it is something that we say as we are leaving when we are going somewhere. For example, in the morning you might say 'I'm off to work now!' or 'The kids will be off to school in a minute'.

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

The LearnEnglish Team

I‘m excited that I have the opportunity to access the wonderful LearnEnglish resources. I thank all the staff of The LearnEnglish Team. I'm afraid I would come here in this websit each day to practice my Listening English. I believe that the resources here will help me a lot in a short time.

I can't guess what  the actual meaning of the words "by having a blast..." by Sir Richard at 01:28 is.

'Having a blast' means 'having a really great time'.  For example:
'How was your weekend?'
'Great!  My friend and I went to a party.  We had a blast!'
I hope that clarifies it for you.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

I think entrepreneurs are important people in every country  as they have a  big role to play in their  society because doing business  can helps absorb unemployment and makes economy flourish .So every entrepreneur who takes risks and makes initiatives must be respected and encouraged to invest in other projects and be a model for youth people.
