Hello,
Could anyone tell me what 'Talking of which' means? There is such a sentence 'Talking of which, what are you doing here?'
Thank you.

Hello Must,

The phrase 'talking of which' (or 'speaking of which') means 'on the same subject'. It is used when you want to add some new information on the subject under discussion.

in the sentence below ,is it past or present tense? thanks in advance
Harry: Well, I could find a job that pays more, but I would enjoy it less...

Hello nicky62,

'Could' is a modal verb which does not have a tense as such and can have past, present or future time reference.

The time reference of this sentence is either the present or the future, depending on the context. It could refer to the speaker's present ability ('I am able to find...') or a possibility in the future ('I could find a job next week...').
