hi everyone!
" they can get to know you, and see what you’re like ". I don't understand that sentence. why did you write " what you're like"? I think we must write " what you like", right?
thank you so much for your help.

Hello hoavt198,

'what you are like' means 'what kind of person you are' so actually what the transcript says is correct. All the same, thanks for telling us, as we do occasionally make mistakes and are very grateful when users point them out to us!

All the best,

hello everyone. can you explain the word ' nosey ', please? I can't find it in the dictionary. thank you very much.

Hello hoavt198,

I'm not sure why you can't find it in the dictionary! If you use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool on the right then you'll find it without any problems. The spelling can be 'nosey' or 'nosy' - both will work.

 

Best wishes,

yes. i used the Cambridge Dictionaries Online but there's no that word. can you explain the meaning of the word ' nosey ' for me? what is the type of word? noun or adjective? thank you very much.

Hello hoavt198,

That's strange - I just searched for both of those words and found them. If you can't find it there, you can see a definition here.

Hello, dear LE team. I'm new here. Can you help me with this question? "and tripped over one of the parties at a table". Does party mean a part of the table or a group of people? Thank you!

Hello aloiz80,

Welcome! In this context, 'party' can refer to a single person or a group of people, and is a common way or referring to customers in a restaurant. See the dictionary entry (use the search box in the grey area on the right side of this page) for more:

party - noun [C] (PARTICULAR GROUP)

› a ​particular ​group of ​people who are ​involved in an ​activity: I made a ​dinner ​reservation for a party of eight.

party - noun [C] (ONE INVOLVED)

› one of the ​people or ​sides ​involved in a ​formal ​agreement or ​argument, esp. a ​legal one: The UN called on all parties to ​lay down ​their ​arms.

All the best,
