Hello iliya_b,

It's more common in American English than in British English, but as you saw in this episode, the British also sometimes use 'guys' this way.

Hello jessica,

I'd suggest you download and install the Flash Player again. That usually solves the problem. If not, please click on the 'Can't see video?' link, just a few lines below the main video window. That should work for you, but if not, please let us know.

All the best,

Hello jessica,

Could you please tell us what kind of error message you see? What kind of device, operating system and browser are you using?

Could you explain for me the meaning of 'suppose' in two difference sentences:
1. Ashlie: OK, I suppose you can come and watch.
2. Ashlie: Stephen! What are you doing? You’re supposed to be watching.

Thank you!

Hello minhcoi1991,

In the first sentence, 'suppose' means 'agree' (without too much enthusiasm). It is followed by a sentence (subject + verb [+ object]).

In the second sentence, 'be supposed to' tells us what was planned or expected - here the expectation was that Stephen would be watching, but something different was happening. It is followed by a verb in the base form.

In future you can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online to look up words like this. You'll see a range of meanings for (for example) 'suppose' and can see examples, definitions and more. It's a very useful tool.

Best wishes,

very nice................

Dear creators of my favourite Word of Street series! It would be just wonderful to make a version of the test for the whole course or for several parts of the course. Have you thoughnt of such idea?
I use the course as a main instrument on my lessons and the students are amazed of the perfect structure and the content.
Anyway, thank you!

Hello Primegirl25,

It's great to hear that you and your students are such fans of Word on the Street! Thank you for your lovely comment! Thank you also for your suggestion, which we may well consider implementing next time we work on the series.

Best wishes and thanks again,
