I don´t Watch tv series, Then I don´t know about this story. If I could had free time, I´d prefer watching an interesting clasical movie.

I loved Game of Throne and Cerci was my favorite character too. I agree with them that the last episode wasn't as I was thinking it will be

Hi, can you help me understand the last word the man said "You don't have to like a character for them to be your favourite!" I don't know the inner meaning of this sentence. Thank your so much in advance

Hi eulaliu,

The meaning here is

A character can still be your favourite even if you don't like them

Sometimes people's favourite characters are the villains, because they are often the most interesting or exciting characters. It's hard to say you like someone who is evil or cruel, but they can still be your favourite.

Hi there
The women said " it was by far the best episode, difinitely." I can not understand the meaning of this sentense. Can you explain it?
Thanks for your help!!!

Hi Thuong144,

The core sentence here is 'It was the best episode'.

The phrase by far is a way of adding emphasis: by far the best = easily the best (nothing else is close).

The adverb definitely is another way of adding emphasis. It means that there is no doubt about it - the speaker is sure.

I have watched many TV shows, but my favorite TV shows are friends. It was a famous television show. This is not just a good movie but it also helps people learn English. Its content is very good with many good actors and it is also funny because it makes me laugh whenever I watch it. At first I just watched it to improve my listening skills but then I became interested in it and I thought it was a lucky thing when I could watch a great TV show like it.

Hello Mayra

It's great that you want to communicate with other people to practise your English, but I'm afraid our House rules don't allow you to share the kind of personal information you would need to do this. This is for legal reasons. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best
