Hi rose78,

If there is a specific sentence or two that you'd like to know, then please post the time code here (e.g. 0:34-0:46) and another user or one of us will try to help you.

Best wishes,

Hi Kirk,
I didn't understand for example 01:20-01:28 and 02:05-02:08
Thank for your help

Hi rose78,

At 1:20 Ashlie says "You don't have much of it left - you only have a little more time."

At 2:05 she says "And does everyone agree about that?"

Please remember, however, that it's not necessary to understand every word that we hear. An important skill in listening is to understand the sense of what is said (using the words we do understand, the context, the tone and stress of the speaker, the clues we get from body language and so on) even when - especially when - we don't understand everything exactly.

Best wishes,
