Hello jessifarzaneh,

Hi Ali,

Yes, at the moment we have just these five exercises. We are hard at work developing lots of new pages right now and hope to have some new speaking skills pages next year. In the meantime, you might want to check the Speaking skills section on LearnEnglish Teens, where they have a few more videos at each level.

All the best,

Have you got cold ones?

the first phrase i learned in this video is : would you like a bag ?
the seconde one is : have you got cold ones ?

Have you got cold ones?

The new phrase that I have learned was 'Have you got cold ones?'. This is the first time that I see it, but I've read the coments about if is there a difference between 'Have you got?' and 'do you have?' but I see that both mean the same.
