How do I view their conversation ????? not as a video file.

I really appreciated your effort to teach english language . thanks alot

it was Very Useful :)

 At the end of this language focus the teacher says "I do like football" (min 02.50). Why does he use the auxiliary "do"?  I would say "I like football".
Thanks

Hello Stephanie,
I agree that it's normal to say 'I like football' without the word 'do'. However, Rob says this after saying 'I don't like fish' so the word 'do' is there to emphasise that he's changing from talking about something he doesn't like to something he does like. It's not essential, but it helps to make it clearer.
I hope that helps.

Ashlie says "I haven't got my phone" and Stephen replies "Me neither". Would it have been the same if he had said "Neither have I"?

Hello Debora,
Yes, you're right! That would mean exactly the same.
