Hello !

Which one is correct ?
On the ground floor there are a bathroom and a kitchen.
or
On the ground floor there is a bathroom and a kitchen.

We use "there is" for singular and "there are" for plural, but I saw the both situations and I don't know which one is correct.

Thank you !

Hi clauvera2016,

You can hear both forms when people speak. In theory, 'there are' is more correct because 'a bathroom and a kitchen' is plural, but people often use 'there is' even with plural subjects in informal speaking.

All the best,

Dear Friends of Learning English Team:

I can't find where activate video/audio of all episodes of listening.
Please, your help.

Hello Santiago Perez,

You should see the video player, including a play button/control, near the top of the page above the transcript and the tasks. If you can't see this then there may be a problem with you device's compatibility. Try accessing the page on a different device (a laptop or desktop computer, ideally) to see if this helps. If it does, then you will know the issue is device related.
