Thanks British Council. Through this lesson, I understand more about Britain's fashion trend and learn a lot of sample questions which are so useful in shopping. I really like slangs like quid and How's it going?

I don't have British clothes, but I think that British fashion may be very eccentric sometimes, with its outfits, especially when it comes to how young people use to dress. I like it, there's a lot of nonconformity that they express.

I think British fashion is strange. It looks like people at Haloween. In Vietnam, If someone wears cyber-goth, he would be a funny person from another planet. I don't have any British cloth. It is very expensive for me


Please, back my pardon. You are doing a great job. No question. But was it neccessary to spoil all the videos with that loud music. I listened with a headset on and came near to a heart attack. The text is almost not to understand. The music roars. In my opinion the music should be in the background. Like birds singing in the trees when you walk in a wood. The speakers are those a learner is interested in. But in all the videos music is hammering as loud as a starting jet. To much brown sauce poured over a dish. I consider to sue you for damaging my poor, old ears. ;-) I`m sorry and I know that you can`t alter it now. We have to live with the mistakes some morons made in the past.

I agree and you're very fun!

Can you tell me the meaning of "standing out". Thanks

Hello Spacy,

You can find a definition and example sentence for 'stand out' in the Cambridge Dictionary.

All the best,
