Thank you very much to all participants of British Council web site, especially the Learn English Team.

Hello !
I saw in top of the video: "Rob talks about the verb 'like' and different ways of making suggestions." I think it's a mistake, don't I ? Rob talks about the verb "look".
All the best !

PS:: Very interesting video ! Thanks a lot !

could you please tell me why we put "a" before "go" in the second sentences in Task 3?



what does : " This room looks like a a hurricane hit it!" means in task 1? (I don't understand" hurricane hit it"

Hi gillesparis,

This idiom means that the room was a complete mess and not tidy at all.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

Hm, this part was easy. Thanks.

"Blackpool looks a nice place to live " ( task 1, question 4 ) could be correct or is totally wrong ?

A nice is about the place...You can say Blackpool looks like a place(without nice)'s dont have real meaning but it's corect
