Translations of "Bbc"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? From BBC, "A mother who lost her 13-year-old son to drugs he bought off Snapchat has welcomed a new safety campaign on the social media app", why do you use "off"? I reckon it would be "through"or"in".
A: Saying "bought in" implies that he bought them in an actual place (i.e. a store) so saying "drugs he bought in Snapchat" isn't correct because Snapchat is a messaging app. "Bought through Snapchat" is correct. "Bought off Snapchat" is just a lazier way of saying "bought off of". I'm not sure why exactly "off of" is a phrase, but it is used typically when you are buying from a non-existent place (or actually removing the bought item off the object- 'I bought my food off of the counter'). An example is "I bought my clothes off of the internet." You wouldn't say "I bought my clothes in the internet" because you never were in the internet. However, saying "I bought my clothes off of the shopping mall" isn't correct because you didn't remove them off the shopping mall. "I bought my clothes in the shopping mall" is correct because you purchased them in the shopping mall. TLDR; he wasn't in snapchat, so you can't use 'in'. 'off of' is a phrase that you can use in place of through.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? BBC news에서 “then they would have done in the past”라는 문장을 들었는데 they는 거의 들리지 않고 댄데이리분던인더페스트 “thendaylivendoninfarst”거의 이렇게 들리더라고요 앞에 then은 살짝 조금 들리고 they는 거의 ‘y’만 들여서 ey+would’ve = 데이르브던, would have = 우르브흐.. 뉴스에 나오는 사람이 엄청 빨리 말하는데 이 발음에 연음과 강세, 축약좀 알려줘요
A: They + would have = If you're speaking fast, it all kind of just jumbles into one word = They'dve. It doesn't make much sense, but it's kind of pronounced like if you were to say "Native" replace the 'n' with 'they' and you get your answer. It's not good to practice this word, instead learn how to pronounce 'they + would have' clearly so things like this don't happen.
