Living is London may cost you an arm and a leg... Situation in Tokyo is the same, that's reason why I live in Saitama, 50km north of centre of Tokyo, it's convenient enough since I can take a train to go to Tokyo in an hour.

Can you explain to me the sentence " I like to keep them keen", please? Thanks

Hello NNK,

'keen' means 'very interested'. Fadi is trying to justify why his relationships only last a short time by saying that he is only interested in women who are very interested in him.

I want to know what this sentence means...And They only ever last for two weeks..

Hello Asina,

Magda is saying that Fadi has girlfriends for a short time (two weeks). 'last' means something like 'continue'.

Hi LearnEnglish Team,

Could you help me understand the phrase "Get out of here!" in this episode? It means " that's impossible"?

Thank you,

Hello Kaofeng,

In this context (and in many others), 'get out of here' is a way of saying 'no' with a lot of emphasis. In other words, Fadi strongly denies that he is jealous. Another common way of saying this is 'No way!'

He's right to ask a reasonable amount for his work. (He's = is? or He's = he has?).

Hello Evgenia111,

The full phrase here is 'He is right to...'
