Hallowe'en Scene 1

It's party time for Ashlie and Stephen - but which costumes to choose?


Language level

Intermediate: B1
Upper intermediate: B2


Hello Vu Dang Dinh,

'take a look' and 'have a look' both mean 'look'. Normally, the preposition 'at' is used before the person or object that is being looked at. 

By the way, there are many similar expressions using 'have' and 'take', which you can learn more about on our delexical verbs page. You can also often find them in the dictionary.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello zia9206314,

I'm glad to hear that the site is helping you! 

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish are not available for download, for technical and legal reasons. You can, however, watcht them online as often as you wish, and you can download the audio files of many of our recordings.


Best wishes,

I have this question, I can't watch the video... it says it is not supported... could you kindly tell me what kind of program I need? Thank you very much

Hello Anna,

To watch the video you need a Flash-compatible device, so if you are using a mobile device such as a phone or tablet you may have problems. Try accessing the site from a desktop or laptop computer - this should enable you to see the video, and other material such as games.

Best wishes,

Hi, let me ask you a small question, it's about the expresion I'm a natural

A: I think it may be a little harder than you think. Magic takes a lot of practice.

S: I’m a natural. Come on, let’s have a look and see what they’ve got. Hmm. And I’ll need a wand, of course.

I supposed the expression refers to be a talented wizard from birth, a natural talent to do something, so I don't need to practice a lot, because my natural talent let me save hours. and hours of work.

Am I right?

Thanks in advance.
