Is "come" a noun and does "'s" show possessive in the sentence "Stephen's come skateboarding"?
Would you mind explaining me, please?


Hi Aye,

In this sentence 'come' is a verb - a past participle. The 's is a contraction of 'has' and the sentence is an example of the present perfect:

Stephen has come skateboarding.

I just want to ask if Stephen's sentence at 1:48 means, 'Help me'?
Thank you!

Yes it does. You can use the dictionary to check words and phrases such as this.

I like to ride a bike, but slowly as not to fall.
I'm work in a hospital and I have to see people when they break their bones, it's hard and painful

I have never hurt myself skateboarding or cycling because i do not do this kind of sport, i like more tennis.It seems to me that it required very good callisthenics and person who likes skateboarding should be bold and fearless.Now i want to answer for 2 question of this video.We need medical attention when we are feeling very strong pain or ache in our body and we got some injury or when we are feeling unwell

I attended a rollerblade course. Now I use skateboard as bicycle.

I think Stephen uses the correct safety standards in skating which tries is good, in fact any sport is good for health, just that in his injury, he exaggerated a bit, also with the ambulance and Ash had to care for her dog but so I liked the video.

Can I ask a question? What dose " of you go then " mean ??

Hello Sir,
In this vid, Ashlie says 'Stephen has come skateboarding'. Should she say Stephen has come FOR skateboarding? Can you please explain me how her sentence was correct and how I can use it?
