can you tell me what is the meaning of "if the temperatures drop significantly"? Tks for your help.

Hello Smallduck,
That's a cool username! Have you looked up 'temperatures', 'drop' and 'significantly' in the dictionary search box at the right hand side of the page? I think the phrase is quite easy to understand once you know the meanings of these words.

Excellent videos! It helps much in learning English!

Very interesting videos. I love very much to see all these locations. Thanks a lot!

Hi !  I'm really exhausted  I found those videos. They are really helpfull.  Can you explain me what means  ' laisure facilities' .

Hi MK205,
If you look up leisure in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online box on the right, you'll see that it refers to the time when we're not working. A facility is a place where an activity is done.
So leisure facilities refers to places where people can do things they enjoy doing in their free time. It can also refer to a leisure centre, which is a place where there's a swimming pool and places to play sport.
I hope this helps! Thanks for visiting LearnEnglish!
