Hi Learning English Team

Could you explain some other phrases for me please:
1- "Just round the corner"
2- " How’s things"
3- "Keep the change"
4- "You guys took your time"

Thanks

Hello maisam34,

I'm afraid we can't explain multiple phrases for you like this in the comment sections. If we tried to do this then we would never have time to do any other work! Please try using an online dictionary to check these and you should be able to work out their meanings.

Hi Learning English Team

Could you explain the meaning of this sentence:
"The Yorkshire Grey in half an hour..."!!

Yours sincerely

Hello maisam34,

Ashlie is reporting a meeting place here. She's repeating what has been arranged by SMS: 'We're meeting in the Yorkshire Grey in half an hour...'

I like to go to cinema with friends in the evening. I don't like clubs they are too noisy.

Hi guys! May i ask you a question that makes me confused. In 2:00, what does Stephen say to the cashier ? " Keep your...!" I cannot hear it. And what does he mean by saying that?
Thanks a millions !

Hello tamori,

You can find the transcript on this page below the tasks and use that to check that to see exactly what was said. You can also study the transcript after doing the tasks.

I think the phrase you mean is 'Keep the change', which means that Stephen does not need to be given the change. It's a way of giving a little extra money to the cashier or to a waiter or taxi driver - something like a tip.
