Hello ryosukecharlie,

I think the best thing would be for you to listen to each episode several times - first a couple of times without the transcript, and then later with the transcript, repeating the parts that you didn't catch.

Good luck!

Hi Teachers Team,

I would like to get some advice from your experience about teaching English. I have a son 3 years old and English will be the second language to him and I would like to know which age and better way I could be introducing It to him?

Thanks for your reply Kirk,I have one more question
Tristan: It won’t be for very long. Just ten minutes. I’ve just got to pop out to the supermarket.
Why do we use ''have just got to'' in this sentence?

Hello utkusahin,

'have got' means the same as 'have' here (you can see a definition and examples of 'have got' in our dictionary. 'just' means something like 'only' here - Tristan's saying he won't be out for very long.

Tristan: Well, you know my dad. You remember him, don’t you? Well, he’s got this little business and he needs a little bit of help.
-What is the meaning of 'this' in the sentence?
