Hello Teachers ,
could you tell me , please , is it right if we change Stephen's words " Don't forget ! You have to make a good impression ." in "Don't forget ! You have to get them impressed by yourself."
Thanks ,

Hello iliya_b,

No, this is an idiomatic expression which we would not change from active to passive in this way. You could say 'a good impression has to be made' but it would sound rather unnatural in most contexts. With phrases like this we generally don't change them, other than to make them agree grammatically.

Dear peter sir ,

Hello iqbalhussain,

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish cannot be downloaded for technical and legal reasons. However, you can watch them as often as you wish online, entirely free of charge, of course.
