it is really interesting

Good site for learning

Yes, I think so.

Question with where: "Where is the transcript?" :D

Hello SPM,

The Word on the Street Language Focus pages do not currently have transcripts. We plan to add them one day, but I'm afraid it will be some time before we are able to do this. If you have a short question about a specific part of the video, please feel free to ask us. Just be sure to specify the time code (e.g. 1:10-1:17) so that we can easily find what you're unclear about.

All the best,
