This sentence "Have you got cold ones ?"

lots of those phrases were new to me, but "Have you got cold one?" and shopkeeper were the most interesting ones.

Have you got cold ones?
That’s one pound sixty change

Have you got a cold ones

For me one phrases is new and more interesting than other. I have mean phrases "there's ...1.60 change" When I have learned english in school and courses we didn't use phrases like that. Phrases what we used sounded more like "this is ...1.60 change" "this is your change".

Have you got cold ones?
there’s £1.60 change.

New phrases :
1-Have you got cold ones?
2-there’s £1.60 change.

For me this sentence is new: "How much is this magazine?". I thought that the only way to ask about a price is "How much does this magazine cost?".

Excuse me, I told a friend of mine about this site and I suggested him to register as I did years ago, but now I can't find the section to register. Is it still possible? And where can we go? Thanks a lot for your answer.

Hello cenzino.scaringi

Our registration options changed earlier this year and now new users can choose to use the site for free (without registering) or to subscribe, which gives them a username like yours and also access to LearnEnglish Select.

You still have your old account because we decided to maintain older accounts that were active, though you don't have access to LearnEnglish Select without subscribing. I'm afraid that, as a new user, your friend does not have the option to have an account without subscribing. As far as I know, you will continue to have your account at no cost for the foreseeable future.

All the best
