Hi Asal.yli,
Most people find phrasal verbs difficult to learn, but of course it's important to learn them because they are used a lot, especially in informal English.
I would recommend that you pay attention to them when listening to/reading episodes in Big City Small World. When you see a phrasal verb, try to understand what it means from context. Then you can look it up in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box (on the right side of this page) to check to see if you've understood correctly. Please note that most phrasal verbs have more than one meaning, so be sure to check each dictionary entry.
Finally, be patient with yourself. Phrasal verbs take time to learn, but the reward is worth the effort.
Best wishes,

i'm weak in task 4

Me too, :((

harry says slow down,will you,... what is this mean?

Hello reezanahamed,
It means something like 'not so fast, wait" and Harry says it because Johnny and Olivia are already planning things before Harry has even got the job!  He's telling them not to go too far ahead with their plans.
By the way, you can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool to check words and phrases like this.  Just type the phrase into the window on the right and you'll get a list of different meanings and examples.  Give it a go, it's a very useful tool!

Hi noor us sahar q...,
Thank you for your question.  I think you can find the answer for yourself by using our Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool (on the right of the screen).  Type 'squeeze you in' into the window and you'll find a link to a definition, an example, the pronunciation and more!
