I wasn't able to understand some of the information on the first try. I think this video was very useful to improve my understanding of English

There are lots of stories, sometimes true sometimes not. Personally, I don't believe it because people that tell you this tales often are fake people. I've never told this type of stories and I don't think I'll do it!

Yes, There are old stories about monster in our country.
Because they haven't written them, they have told them each other.

hi teacher,
as tour guide said " Believe it or not, it goes all the way back to the year 565. "
the phrase "go all the way" I look up in the dictionary means "to have sex, especially after a period of kissing and touching". I don't think it's suitable in this case .
please explain.
thank you a lot. !!!

Hi nguyen bao tin,

The phrase here is 'go all the way back', which describes the length of something's history. In this context, it means that the history of the legend of the monster is as old as...'


Best wishes,

Excuse me! Could you explain what phrase " from end to end" mean, please? I've look up in dictionary but not see. Thank you!!!
"Well, there’s certainly a lot of area for some creature to hide in because the Loch here is 38 Kilometres long from end to end, it averages about 230 metres deep".

HI!!! Firstly I'm not expert in English and I'm not good at in English. But I can answer your question: " from end to end " means. That means the length of the Loch Ness monster, the length of the Loch Ness monster from its head to foot is 38 kilometers long. Um.... Do you understand my explaining? Do my explaining understand you?

Hello May Thida Su,

You're right in thinking that 'from end to end' refers to a length, but please note that here it's the loch (the lake) that measures 38km in length, not the Loch Ness monster. I just wanted to point this out in case it wasn't clear.

All the best,

Oh!!! Yeah !!! Sorry !!! I've make a mistake. I haven't listen this carefully. Thanks a million...

I think , in Turkey there is also old stories about monsters.
These stories aren't factual.
