I can't see the following videos, why ? I use Google Chrome and it worked until here.

Hello Stephane,

We're sorry for the inconvenience. Are you still getting the same error? If so, could you please tell us what operating system you're using and what version of Chrome it is? I ask because the videos are working for me (in Chrome), so it might be something specific to the version you're using.

Hi Team.
"Camden Town is a world-renowned place to shop for alternative clothing".
1. a world-renowned place
2. a renowned place in the world
Do they have similiar meaning?
Are there special condition so I have to chose the first sentence?
Could I make similiar form with sentence,
" a famous place in the world "
==》 a world-famous place
Would you please to explain?
Thank you.

Hello Nizam,

There is nothing grammatically wrong with 2, but 1 is much more commonly used than 2. The same is true of 'world-famous' vs. 'a famous place in the world' – the first one is much more commonly used than the second.

I'm afraid there's no real reason for this other than that is the way people tend to speak.

Hi Team.
Jack : a Cyber-Goth is SOMEONE that doesn't think about what other people think about THEM.
What is the meaning of THEM here?
Is THEM (plural) reffered to SOMEONE (singular) here?
Can I change 'Them' with 'him' here?

Hello Nizam,

'them' is often used instead of 'him' or 'her' when it's not clear whether the person we're referring to is male or female. In this case, 'someone' could refer to both men and women, and so 'them' is a good choice. It is possible to say 'him' instead, though nowadays some might interpret that as sexist.

What does 'exo-tubes' means ?


The term is used to describe a particular style of clothing and is defined in the sentence in which it is used:

It’s an exo-tubes top - which means like, it shows the inside of my body

It's a word invented by the designer, not a word which is in general use.
