  • I think I should meet him. He sounds nice.
  • I'm trying to sound mature. You know, more grown up.

We use 'sound like' with nouns and pronouns:

Hello, LearnEnglish Team!
Valentine day is on February, 14, isn't it? But in the video the park looks like in spring or summer: green trees, grass, etc.

Hello krig,

That's right, it's February 14. You're very observant and might be right about the weather! On the other hand, it is possible for the grass to be green in February nowadays – the climate in the UK is fairly temperate.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team


I liked this video.

Why can't I do some of the tasks? I'm getting the message 'Error 503 backend read error'. Can you please help? Thank you.

Hello Melody16,

This seems to happen from time to time for some users and we are aware of it, but it seems the cause may be not local for us. It should be just a temporary issue, I think.


Best wishes,

What's so funny and helpful with that series !. Thanks the LearnEnglish Team so much.

Hi, what is the difference between ( comes at 11) snd ( comes at eleven).

Hello monaia,

There's no difference in meaning. The word ('eleven') is generally used more often in more formal writing, but it means the same thing.

Best wishes,

Hello. "Goodness sake" what's does it mean? Does it has the same mean with "heaven's sake"?
