Hi the team,

What did Steven say at the end of the video ?

Best regards,



Hello Stephane

He says 'It's matasak, in Persian.' and then 'I'll see you later, Rob.'

All the best

Yeah, the British ommit / r / sound after vowels. Then they may say Matasak instead of MATARSAKمترسک, a Persian word for SCARECROW

Thank you Kirk, I didn't understand Matasak !
Best regards,

Why we say " Pietro didn't pass his exam. he shuld have studied harder " and we don't say " he should has studied harder " . thanks

Hello M.A.KH,

Should have is an example of a perfect modal verb and these verbs do not change their form. We use 'have' in all such examples:

should have

would have

won't have

could have

Scarecrow is spaventapasseri in italian, a very long word!

scarecrow means korkuluk in Turkish

I think we use "go along" if the thing is long,
and "go across" if it is not long.

is my perception right?
