Hello JuanPask,

Yes, that is correct. Well done!

Hello! I can't match the audio with the transcript for the question "have you got cold ones?" I think I'm listening "you've got cold ones?" Am I wrong? Sorry, but I'm not used to english conversations. Thank you very much for your patience!

Hello Southern Pilgrim,

It is quite hard to catch, isn't is? English uses weak forms for many words when they are unstressed in the sentence.

The word have in isolation or when it is stressed is pronounced /hæv/.

When have is unstressed it is pronounced /həv/ or even /əv/. That is why it is hard to hear in the dialogue.

Hi can i help you

Good conversation for a A1 beginner level.anyway I wonder if the phrases "here you are" & "here you go" mean the same thing.

Hello Sridhar reddy,

When we are giving something to somebody the phrases 'Here you are' and 'Here you go' have the same meaning. 'Here you go' is more informal, I would say.
