Hi,
I like what Ash said, that she isn't there to run around like a servant. It's a very good phrase for all who think that girls must do everything.

One day while i was cycling car stopped in front of me and i didnt realise that until the last min. I was almost hit the car

Have you ever hurt yourself cycling or skateboarding?
I never hurt seriuosly, but some months ago I was suffering a strong painful in my arm, due to an effort I think was by my ping pong matches. I went to the hospital and made me x-ray in order to know what was happening...according to the symptoms the doctor diagnosted "bursitis" a problems with my arm's nervous.
How do you know when you need to get medical attention?
When you feel bad with painful, temperature, flu, diarrea or any others symptom.

I've never tried cycling or skateboarding.
If I feel pain I can know that I need to get medical attention.

Hello! I've got two doubts: I was used to say "It's very kind of you", is it an oldfashioned form? Second: in the video they say "to take to hospital", but in the task is written "to take to the hospital", are they both right? Many thanks in advance for your help. Bye!

Hello Iellablu,

'It's very kind of you' is perhaps not as common as it used to be, but I wouldn't say it's old-fashioned. It really depends a lot on the contexts you use it in and the kind of relationship you have with the people you say it to.

It's great that you noticed that small difference. In British English, 'to hospital' is more common, though you can find instances when people say 'to the hospital' (and it is also the most common form in American English). By the way, this is explained a bit on our Articles 2 page.

All the best,

It was so funny.. But I have a question, it's ok if I say would you mind borrow me some money? Because I saw most of them after mind it has ing..

Hello ariana01,

In this construction with 'mind', you have to use the -ing form with the verb that follows it, so no, you should say 'Would you mind lending me some money?' instead. Note that I changed the verb to 'lend' – I'd suggest you look up 'lend', 'borrow' and also 'mind' in the dictionary (follow the links) to see how they work.

This is a great video. Their conservations make me improve my English language skills.
However, I want to ask you why do they use "by the morning" instead of "in the morning" in this sentence: But if your ankle isn’t better by the morning, I’m taking you to hospital.?
I will be very grateful if you reply my comment. :-)
Thank you.
