Hello everybody
Everything correct except that Ashlie and Stephen have gone out for dinner with their friends Then I answered it's True but computer says it's false.

Hello council Erlan,

It is false, I'm afraid.  Ashlie and Stephen don't go out for dinner; they go out for a drink to a pub.

Could you explain what " hit the town" means ??
Thank you

Hi Flyn dance,

"to hit the town" means to go out, for example, to meet up in a pub, go to a club or disco of some sort, etc.

Hi The LearnEnglish Team,
Ashlie says, 'Just round the corner'. May I know if it is the same as 'Right around the corner' and which one is more common please?

Hi Aung Thet Naing,

Both of these have the same meaning but I couldn't tell you which is more common overall.  In my (British English) dialect I would rarely say 'right around...', but I suspect this is more common in, for example, American English.  Both are correct, however, so you can freely use either or both as you wish.

Best wishes,

I like Ashely's dress. It really suits her. Her hair is nice and beautiful as well.

Thanks it's great to learn English with you.

My sincere thanks British English Team and Stephen and Ashlie. Though in cold weather, They made a nice episode, with wearing only thin clothes.
That's impressive! Thanks for your program and help, I can improve my English. Thank you very much indeed.
