I would like to take selfies, pets, nature and special situation.

It depends on the situation. Sometimes I take pictures of people including myself. I usually like taking photographs of sceneries of nature.

Hi, I have a question about episode 10. What is the meaning of the following sentence, exactly:
"You can hurt yourself."

Hello shahhoseini

'hurt yourself' means to cause injury (hurt) to yourself. In this case, Sammy is saying that video games are sports because when you're playing video games you can get hurt. Julia doesn't seem to agree and is not impressed!

All the best

I don't have many photos of myself but I have a lot of photos of scenery and mine son.

Hi, I really enjoy watching these videos, they are a great help. They really do it very well

A photo can hurt
A photo can hurt sometimes
But it's the only thing that I know
When it gets hard
You know it can get hard sometimes
It is the only thing that makes us feel alive
We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
.........hold on. I've got no such a photo...


when ı was child, my dad took a lot of photos of me so that ı have a lot of memories, but now ı don't like taking pictures of me because when you focus it, you have to spend so much time for this and you may miss the moment...

In task 5, question 2; why did we use the article "an" with the word "sms"?
