Hello Rosie Phan,

I'm not surprised you couldn't find this in a dictionary because it is simply a name! The presenter is called 'Amandeep'. It is, I believe, a Pubjabi name originally.

There are traditional dances, treats and lots of funny and interesting friends and relatives in our wedding ceremonies in Turkey :) I think you should always be kind, understanding and reliable.

hi there,
Amandeep ask "what have you got left to do?".I don't know what it mean?

Hello nguyen bao tin,

This is a question we ask when someone is part-way through a task. Some things have been done and other things have not. The question asks what things still need to be done. Here Amandeep is asking which parts of the wedding preparations are not completed yet.

 

Best wishes,

We always dance in the weddings, Turkey likes dancing.
You should be confident and understanding

Generally in my culture, the wedding is not depending on the religion.
I think patience and understanding makes permanent the relationship.

Bride's father in the video looks like her contemporary. He seems not much older.

I saw in this video/ transcript a word : "the vicar". I understood that it is a synonym for the "priest", isn't it ? There is a Romanian word too and its meaning is "a priest or a bishop who replaces a higher rank church official". I didn't know that I could find it in the English language.

Very interesting and useful video !
Thank you very much !

Hello clauvera2016,

Finding these kinds of words is always very interesting. You might be interested in looking into the etymology of 'vicar' – as with very many words in English, it has roots in old French. And of course Romanian and French are both Romance languages.

All the best,
