Hi I have problem with watching videos. It does not work, Could you check for me.

Submitted by editor_rachael on Sat, 04/11/2020 - 14:25

Hi taylanken,

 

Thanks for letting us know. I've just tested it and it's working fine for me. Are you using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or another browser? Try using a different browser and see it that works. Can you see the other videos in the Video zone, Video UK and Film UK sections, or are they not working either?

 

Best wishes,

What´s the meaning of top sounds?
Profile picture for user JoModerator

Submitted by JoModerator on Wed, 11/14/2018 - 08:04

Hi Rachelberry,

In the video 'Top Sounds' is the name of the magazine. It's a music magazine. 

Literally 'top sounds' means something like 'great music'.

 

I hope that helps.

Bottle of water and bags.

Submitted by Pippatwo on Wed, 05/30/2018 - 14:47

It was very helpful, but there is one thing I don't quite understand. Why does the customer use 'have you got' instead of something like 'do you have?' Are they different in some way?

Submitted by Jonathan - Coo… on Thu, 05/31/2018 - 03:11

Hi Pippatwo. Both of those phrases can be used. 'Have you got ...?' has the same meaning as 'Do you have ...?' - it's asking if you have, own or possess something. There are other forms of it too (e.g. I've got, She's got, They've got, I haven't got, etc.).

Here are a couple more things to know about 'have you got'.

  • It's much more common in British English than American English.
  • It's much more common in speaking than writing.

Hi marygee
You can say 'Here you are' when you are handing somthing to someone. So in this video the girl is giving the money to the shop keeper, so it is highlighting the action that she is doing to the shopkeeper.
