In this lesson , I still don't understand some points , can you explain them for me?thx
1、'the floor will be open', what's exact the 'floor' mean?
2、Peter, is it too early to offer a little more colour on the..., what's exact the 'offer a little more colour ' mean?
thx for your help.

Hello snow_cui,

Great questions! In 1, 'the floor will be open' basically means that anyone will be able to ask questions - see the 'open space' definition of 'floor' in the Cambridge Dictionary, where you'll see an example sentence that is similar.

In 2, 'a little more colour' means 'more details' - see 'colour' (second definition).

All the best,
