Hello Nizam,

In informal speech, sometimes people say 'there is' when the standard form would be 'there are'. I wouldn't recommend that you speak this way, but it's good to know that some native speakers do.

maybe stephen tries to communicate with oxford information department to learn about what he can do.

when he meets with the students he asks for what activities he can do and what are their experiencies in oxford university.

maybe he is going to invite her to drink a cup of coffee when she has finished the exam

I think, he goes to the riverside and talks to the students who he have met, about driving test and Oxford. Also he buys a present for Ashlie or he decides to eat a lunch with her.

I think Stephen will stay around the Oxford University's buildings, especially the library. He's going to talk about his driving test, cars, sports and his studies as well.

Sthephen will be waiting his sister Ashly's call.

I think he goes to the riverside.
I think they talk about Oxford and its beautiful places
I think he is going to buy a present for Ashlie

Hi everybody , I have a question ;
The word STUFF I did not understand what is it mean when the student said :
it’s sunny and stuff / go punting and stuff.
Could you explain the meaning and what is the different when she said :
Loads of stuff ?
Thanks a lot ...

Hi zahret.alnargs,

The fourth explanation in the dictionary entry for 'stuff' explains this, though I'd also recommend you read the other explanations and example sentences, too.

All the best,
