Hello iliya_b,

Please see Peter's response to nopainnogain, who asked essentially the same question.

All the best,

Thanks for your reply Kirk,I have one more question
Tristan: It won’t be for very long. Just ten minutes. I’ve just got to pop out to the supermarket.
Why do we use ''have just got to'' in this sentence?

Hello utkusahin,

'have got' means the same as 'have' here (you can see a definition and examples of 'have got' in our dictionary. 'just' means something like 'only' here - Tristan's saying he won't be out for very long.

Best regards,

Tristan: Well, you know my dad. You remember him, don’t you? Well, he’s got this little business and he needs a little bit of help.
-What is the meaning of 'this' in the sentence?

Hello utkusahin,

'this' can be used to with a meaning like 'a certain' to refer to something that one is about to explain. You can see an explanation and example of this in the entry for 'this' in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online, under the entry that is identified as an informal use.

Best regards,

I answer it, good.

I like this web, it's great!!!

thank you.

Thank you for your help. It was my first question here.

Hi. I don't know why in Task 3 is "a tomato soup" instead "some soup", soup is a noun uncountable.
