Hi Alex!Unfortunately I didn’t understand the meaning of ”the hole in the wall” very clearly.Isn’t it a machine from the bank where you can withdraw the money??? Please explain this to me!Thanks, Cristina

cristina

    Hi Cristina! Imagine a wall! If there is a hole is not a good wall… A hole in the wall is not a good place …I think…

    Ste!

      I think what Cristina meant is, that a hole in the wall means an ATM, so is it possible that it also means a dirty bar/pub. Alex, could you please tell us if we’re correct? Does “a hole in the wall” mean both ATM and dirty pub?

      Malena

    Hi Cristina, i really do not understand your question, the explanation is clear.

    rafasant

    The expression is “a hole in the wall.” It just means a really ugly, messy, and dirty bar, pub, or restaurant.

    Alex

Dung from Viet Nam

    Alex

Hi Alex, Thanks for your clear explaination, its very nice indeed. i have one question that, a dive and a hole in the ground is used for a dirty bar?, Can i use wherever, the place dirty?,
Thanks alot, Alex.
Have a nice day!

shing mang tun

    Usually, we refer to dirty bars and pubs as dives. It can be a music venue, or a dance club that’s dirty as well. A hole in the wall can also be used for a small or dirty restaurant.

    Alex

aldreamer

how about the bar is a good place? is there any slang on it??

mukti

    You can use the phrase “top notch” to describe something that’s really high quality. “Final Fantasy XII is a top notch video game!” “That place is top notch.” “She’s a top notch teacher.”

    Alex

hassanson

Thank you Alex, that was useful for me. I really like your lessons.

Aqeel

Very useful explication, thanks. But I gonna buy you a red marker ;-)

Dele

    “Very useful explanation.” We don’t use “explication” in English. :)

    Alex

      But then I could find explication in English dictionaries. Why can’t we use it. It means the same as “explain” or “elucidate”

      sweetshit

Thank you Alex. It was really a nice class. I got good things.

waris

Geez! i took the quiz and i got 2 out of five! i must say i need more practice and help. Thank’s Teacher Alex keep up the good work!

jazz29

ihave been ones in the bar and i sayed its massed up it good one or no

alnaji ismail

    “Messed up” means crazy, disturbed/disturbing, or just ridiculous.

    “Have you seen Oldboy? The ending of that movie is totally messed up!”

    Alex

Hey Alex!
Nice to meet you :) I am a freshman here and do like to get knowledge this way. Thanks a lot. You and other guys are really great. The information you give people is really useful and I hope I will use it when I visit the USA in the future.

:D thanks
but still as i guess there are many pubs expressions for example when i was in London .i asked the bar man to give me to pips of beer and then i told him the beer name , so the word pips i didn’t understand what it refer too but later i understood that it must refer to glass or bottles :)
