Hello everyone :-)
I am new at British Council and this is my first exercise.

Harry ask himselfe at the end what he shold do.
Here is my answer:
He should take at first the job offer from Fadi, then this is what he can do best. The homepage for Olivia can be a side project or when she dosn´t need it immediatley, his secont project. Maybe, he can arrange a job interview at the company where Jonny works , so he can think a littel deeper about if it suit him best.

Thanks for the exercise.

Harry: TALKING OF WHICH, what are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be in the shop?

Olivia: I’m just taking a break. I’m fed up of standing in that shop selling shoes all day, to tell you the truth.

What does it mean "Taking of which" in there?

Hello amit_ck
'talking of which,' or 'speaking of which,' are used to refer back to what was said just a moment before for the purposes of linking it to a related topic that the speaker is just introducing after the phrase. In this case, Harry was talking to Olivia about how Johnny is always working. By saying 'talking of which', he means something like 'on the topic of how much Johnny works' and then asks Olivia why she is not working. Using this phrase, he implies that he thinks that Olivia should be working.

Is “how are things going” mean “How are you” or “How’s everything”? When I can use this phrase?

Hello amit_ck

Yes, that's right: 'how are things going?' is an informal way of asking someone how they are. It's is very commonly used in informal situations.

I didn't understand some lines when Johnny said(And I’m here to make the most of it!)
what Fadi said( I can’t keep track ) i know the meaning of keep and track individually


very nice conversation, I loved the differences in accent .
I want to ask how can I remember the names ? because it is difficult for me to remember names and that makes the answer difficult .

"Harry – get a piece of the action!" could you please tell me what does it mean?
