What does the phrase mean "By any chance?"

Hi elena68,

If you look up 'chance' in the dictionary search box on the lower right side of this page and then search for the 'chance (LUCK)' entry, just below it you'll see an explanation and example sentence of this phrase.

Hello fidela82,

There's no hurry to finish the episodes, so please take your time. I'd suggest you read our Help page for advice on how to get the most out of our pages. You might also want to try Elementary Podcasts series 4, which is being produced these days. Start with episode 13, the most recent episode, and then episode 1 of series 4, then episode 2, and so on.

Best wishes,

Hello, Of course, but you can listen to the episodes and at the same time read the transcript to lead the listening at the episodes.
