Hi Manal,
This video is aimed more at students at intermediate or above level, so if you want to listen to something without using the transcript, try our Elementary Podcasts or some of the other easier listening pages on the site.
On the other hand, you could read the transcript first or, if you prefer, try listening to the conversation in small sections, then pausing to read the transcript. Try lots of different ways to find one that works for you!
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
