Hello! So, why did Rob pronounce banger like: 'bang-ger, instead of 'bang-er'? Is that two pronunciation is correct? Thank you!

Hello Aaron,

There are many different accents in Britain and this is an example of different people saying the same word a different way.

Hello Adam, thanks for your helpful replies.

hi guys , i have a any problem, at e.g.(2.05) auntil e.g.(2.12) i don't know well what rob says and of course i'd like to understand when and because we use so at begin of sentence.

i hope someone helps me.


Hi rosario70,

As Rob says 'We often use 'so' just as a sort of a way to show or let someone know we're going to say something.' 'so' is often used in this way to signal that we're about to sum up what we've just said, or to signal a change in the direction of the conversation. I'd suggest you listen for 'so' in your listening practice, and I think you'll soon get a better sense of how it's used.

what is the meaning of "petrol thingy" I didn't find it in the dictionary

thanks for your efforts

Hello hayaalqasem,

'Thingy' is an informal word we use to describe something for which we do not know the name, as an alternative to 'thing'. 'Petrol thingy' means 'that thing (which I don't know the name of which has some connection to petrol'.

I am a new beginner so realize that the language focus part are much more easily to listen than the dialogue part. Perhaps it takes time to get adaptation with the sounds.

Best regards!
