Camden Scene 1

Stephen and Ashlie realise they have quite similar ideas about what their Mum would like, but Ashlie soon gets distracted from the task in hand!

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the transcript at any time.

Is quid a slang for pound?

Hello Alice RWL,

Yes, that is correct. You can check information like this in an online dictionary like this one.

My name is Krymin, I really like videos of 'Words on the street'. These are useful and helpful.
But I don't understand the sentence "How did you get on?" on this video. Could you mind explaining it in order that I can get it?
Best regards,

Hello Krysmin,

I'm glad you like our videos.

The sentence 'How did you get on?' means something like 'Was your trip/meeting/exam (etc) successful?' It's quite a common question. Other ways to say the same thing include:

How did it go?

Did it go well?

Was everything OK with your...?

Hi there!
I've just read this phrase "Foreign Languages Teacher Education Faculty" in a university, and I wonder whether there are some mistakes in that phrase or not
I think the word "LANGUAGES" in that phrase is NOT correct. It must be "LANGUAGE". Is that right?
And "TEACHER EDUCATION"???? Is that right? It must be "TEACHER TRAINING"
So that phrase above must be " Foreign Language Teacher-Training Faculty"
Am I right?
Thank You!

Hello damtruong,

The way names are formed is a little different to the way phrases are formed in normal speech and words which are usually nouns may be used as adjectives and so on. I think there are many ways you could form this kind of name and your suggestion is certainly one (though there would not be a hyphen between 'Teacher' and 'Training').

The original name is perhaps a little unusual but it is not incorrect in my view.
