"Greedy" means excessive desire for food, drink, etc. But in this audio I don't feel Harry is Greedy. So, What does mean in here Greedy?

Hello amit_ck

'greedy' often refers to money. As Olivia says, all he seems to be interested in is money -- that's the meaning here.

All the best

I didn't understand this sentence(I like to keep them keen)what Fadi means

Hello fidaasiddig,

When Fadi says 'I like to keep them keen' he is making a joke, suggesting that he maintains his girlfriends' enthusiasm by keeping the relationships short so that they do not get bored.

Many thanks, BC!

Why do you use the grammar “I was looking at job”?
I don’t understand. Can you explain for me?

Hello Sunheros,

The sentence in the text is 'I'm looking at jobs' (plural). It means that the speaker is reading the section containing job advertisments.

What a digusting talking this not look like a real life dialogue please make more realistic dialogues


I don't understand " Olivia, if it makes it easier for you, I think I’m going to take Harry up on his offer. I’ll get him to do some work for me, then it won’t matter if you turn him down "
I don't understand what he is mean ?

Thank you

Hello walaa,

Harry has offered to do some work for Olivia. It is too expensive for her but she is worried that if she says 'no' he will be upset. Fadi tells her that Harry will be working for him (Fadi) so he already has some work and will not be upset with her if she says 'no'.
