Why the video is loading so much time?

Hello ravivasani75,

Are you able to see the video eventually? I've just checked and cannot see any problems with it and am able to watch it. Perhaps there was a temporary technical problem which made it difficult for you to see the video earlier.

If you are still unable to see it, I would recommend trying to view it on a different device or in a different web browser. If that doesn't work, please let us know what browser version you are using and we'll do what we can to help you.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best,

How I find them? Mmm. Maybe I will use technology, mobile. ))

Hello !

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

Hello guys!
When I was child I lost. My dad lose me on a city center. Man while sitted on the radio-booth said what little boy lost. My dad going to him and asked for help. And he given instructions for me. My father waited me radio-booth near.

I had a hard time finding a friend once when we were in a concert, because the battery of my mobile phone was dead. I found him because I stood on a speaker that allow me to saw his red cap.

yes once upon, i had hard time to find a friend. when i called him and asked from him that, where are you? And he said that, he is in the front of the hyper market but i was also standing in the front side of hyper market . Later on when i went to another side of hyper market he was standing there.

Yes, I had a hard time to find someone in a public place, in this case, in a shopping center too. To find him, I went to the reception, and they call him through the loudspeaker.
