Yes, I know Oxford. It's a cultural city in England.
I think they've gone to the city to see Oxford University

Everytime I hear the word ' Oxford ' the first thing that appears in my mind is the Oxford University . Also, Oxford is a very popular ancient city . I would like to visit there if I travel to UK .

Yes, I have.
I guess, Ashlie will take an exam.

Oxford is a city in England which contains Oxford University. I wonder what they will do in Oxford.

Very useful

I am able to understand the conversation in Scene 1. but I still don't clearly understand why the word "off" stand here 'off we go'. Explain it to me, please.

Hello Arothorn,

The phrase 'off we go' means 'let's start' or 'we're starting'. It is a fixed expression in which you can change only the pronoun and verb ('off you go', 'off he goes', 'off they went' etc), and not 'off'.


Best wishes,
