Hello Sarah,

Please look up these two words in the dictionary. There's a handy Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box on the lower right side of this page that you can use to see definitions and examples of both words in use.

Hello, i don't understand why in the joke they have used the pronoun "he" to talk about the parrot? E.g: before he died, did he say anything?
Thanks

Hello Armel12,

In English it's possible to use 'he' or 'she' as well as 'it' to describe animals, if we know the gender of the animal. Pet owners, for example, will never say 'it' about their pet but will always say 'he' or 'she'.

Best wishes,

hi,
Could you give more explanation about to look at/after/forward to.
Regards

Hi sidonierls,
The usage I give may clarify: "Hei, look at me" "My husband looks after the kids when I go to office""I am looking forward to receive thanks from you"
Regards

Hi sidonierls,

Have you looked up these three different phrasal verbs in the dictionary (see the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box on the right)? There you'll see the different meanings they have, as well as example sentences.

Famous designer which i'd like to meet - of course, Coco Chanel. She's French, she lived in France in XX century. She had made revolution in women's dressing. many her ideas are being alive - littlr black dress (LBD), suit, bag 2.55, perfume, seas theme in casual clothes etc. I like her things because they are always actually and suit for all occasions. I like her design and i like her persone, because she is very gifted, strong, going in own way in beginning XX c. women. I'd like to talk to her about her work and her talent, about her life and ideas these she had moved to fashion. I would like to ask her about her thinks and feelings, her love and friendship - did she feel along or happy

It is very interesting because I have learn something abaout London underground. They call TUBE.
