Hi rosario70,

Yes, in 1) that is a causative structure, and yes, the sentence you invented is grammatically correct and sounds natural.

In 2), no, 'let' is not followed by a to + infinitive - it is followed by the bare infinitive (without 'to').

Hello davood1355,

Thank you for letting us know about this. I have a few questions which will help us to work out the cause of the issue.

What device are you are using? In paricular, are you using a mobile device?

Can you watch the video on another device, such as a different laptop or desktop computer?

Are you able to see videos on other LearnEnglish pages, such as this one (try both the normal video and the 'Can't see the video?' link)?

Are you able to watch videos on other websites, or do you also have problems with those videos?

Your answers will help us to identify the cause of the problem and to see if there is anything that we can do to help.

Best wishes,

hello , i would like to say that it is a great website which can help the people who wants to learn english in a better way. i appreciate the efforts which the entire learn english team put to make this website and maintaining it up to date.. am just a beginner in learning my english in a better way. if you go through my comment and finding out any mistake and correct me, it will be great . i would like to ask you, in which all situation we can ask the question "what are you up to?".. i hope some will clear my doubt.thank you , stay blessed.

Hello Abhilash Nair,

We use 'What are you up to?' to ask what a person is doing. It's a more colloquial way to say this and it can refer to the moment of speaking or a more general 'at the moment' time.

For example, we might say 'What are you up to?' when we see someone working hard at something and we want to know what it is. Alternatively, we might say 'What are you up to (these days)?' to someone who we have not seen for a while because we want to know about their job, for example.

I hope that clarifies it for you. I'm afraid it's not possible for us to correct the posts users make as we receive many posts every day and if we tried to correc them then we would have no time for anything else! However, please do keep posting and we will be happy to help with any questions you have about the site or the material here.

Best wishes,
