Hi Aung Thet Naing,

I'm afraid you've misheard the sentence.  It is actually 'We just seem to have so much weather'.

Best wishes,

Thank you very much, Peter.

Hello ! could you tell me what did Stephen say to Rob @00:12 ? when Rob asked him ( How was your picnic?) I couldn't catch what he said. Thank you.

Hi littlemoon86,

"Well, you know, I've got a big appetite."

thankssss very useful

i like this exercise!!

Hi, I have a problem with the sentence" I really don't feel well. I think I am going to be sick", when I do the task, I type "get" sick instead of "be" sick, I think these two words mean the same, but the result turned out that "get" is the wrong word. Is there any difference? Thanks a lot!

Hi cookyhcl,
Great question! There actually is a difference in meaning between get sick and be sick. Although both answers are possible, in this context, be sick makes a little more sense.
If you look up be sick in our dictionary (see the small Cambridge Dictionaries Online box on the right), you'll see that it can also mean to vomit. "I think I'm going to get sick" can mean that you feel, for example, like you're catching a cold, but "I think I'm going to be sick" means that you feel like you're going to vomit soon.
The original exercise didn't make this clear, so I can see why you were confused. We've changed it to talk about eating old meat, so be sick is more appropriate in this context, though get sick is possible if the speaker is referring to some other kind of feeling.
I hope that helps you!

Hi SYED HASIBUR RASHID,
Your advice is very good - practicing is essential to learning any language, and speaking by Skype is a great way to do it.
But I'm afraid it's against the rules to share personal information on LearnEnglish. This is simply to protect users who are minors (under 18 years of age).
In the future, we plan to create a way for users to share personal information so that you can contact each other, but this is not yet available.
