Hello everyone! The correct answer is C: ‘to go Dutch’ is an informal expression for sharing the bill equally or each person paying their own expenses. It’s a very British expression and it's used informally.

Well done! The answers are ARRIVES and WILL ARRIVE. The first verb is present simple for future timetabled events as the speaker mentions that the Queen’s visit is scheduled. The second verb is a future based on a spontaneous decision, so ‘will’ would be most appropriate.

Because the decision seems like it was made quite quickly, we would prefer to use ‘will’ rather than ‘be going to’ or the present continuous tense.

However, in the second case, the Queen has apparently made a personal future plane based on a decision – something that you can see in our grammar card we DON’T use the present simple with a future meaning for.

Good work everyone! 👏🙌 The answers are ARRIVES and WILL ARRIVE. The first verb is present simple for future timetabled events because the speaker mentions that the Queen’s visit is scheduled.
