Northern Ireland Scene 2

Once they've dried off, Ashlie and Stephen explore a bit more of Northern Ireland's heritage and, like so many places in the UK, that means... ghosts!

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

Stephen says to Ashlie: "I had your room changed.
Stephen didn’t change Ash’s room himself, but he asked someone else (the hotel receptionist) to do it.
We use this structure (have + object + past participle) to talk about asking other people to do things for us.


Task 4


Language level

Intermediate: B1
Upper intermediate: B2


Well, I do not believe in ghots and simply I believe all they are created by humans. They are just our imaginations created in our frontal talamus inside nerves and impuls for ages in humans and old anchestors. Thoses human made rural talents and old fashioned histories. But unfortunatelly, still they are good to believe for some uneducated humans and telling this stories to the children.

Hi English Team,
There is a sentence: 'What kinds of places do ghosts live? I think , there's a lack of 'in' before question mark. Recommended Cambridge Dictionary propose the entry 'live at/in/near/etc./' What's your opinion?

Hi Tom FIrst,

That sentence would need to have 'in' added to it. Did you see this sentence on one of our pages? If so, please let us know so that we can correct it.


Best wishes,

I d like to go in north ireland , i love this places,

I don't believe in ghosts. Thank you

The Task 3 was a bit difficult for me, we don't have this kind of phrase in French. I will have to practice more. Thanks for this new aspect of British language.

By the way, do you say "difficult for me" or "difficult to me" ?

Hello Stephane,

That's a great attitude, and it will help you learn. 'difficult for me' is the correct expression. Keep up the good work!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I don't believe in ghosts but I like watch them in films, one of my favorite is Ghostbusters (the first one).
I don't really know if ghosts are popular in France, neither in New Caledonia. I guess not.
It's typically British, so we could find them in Scottish castles.

No, I don't believe in ghosts and the stories about ghosts aren't very popular in my country. I think they live in old, deserted and mostly dark places.

No, I don't
No, They are not popular.
They live in castles,old houses etc.
