Why do people usually use " have a word with..." instead of "talk with"?

Hello Steven,

Fadi could have said 'talk with' instead of 'have a word with' here and it would be fine. When you have a word with someone, it is usually a quick conversation for a specific purpose. Here, for example, Fadi will talk with his uncle about the cost; they're not going to have an ordinary conversation about nothing in particular.

Can anyone tell me what's the meaning of "every now and then" please? is it an idiom? Thanks!

Hello Steven,

You can find this and many other phrases in the Cambridge Dictionary. If you can't find a word or phrase there, you're welcome to ask us, but please check there first.

Thank you for your work)

Thank you very much for choosing such a good conversation

Love it to bits! Thank you for the great work, The LearnEnglish Team!

"That's no harm in looking." I don't know what that means. Can someone tell me?

Hi Kyawklwin,

'There's no harm in looking' means 'if I look, nothing bad will happen'. Harry means that even though he already has work, it won't cause any problems if he looks for better work. Note that the phrase is 'There's no harm in ...' not 'That's not harm in ...' (which is incorrect).

All the best,
