Hi Aydan. it is nice to see someone from Baku here. how is going your study ? 

Oxford University is great.
I hope that the universities in my country are as good as Oxford one day. 

Well done guys,what the hell happened here?

Hi and thanks for this great place to allow us studying and improving our English. My problem here is with shot. Good advice, your shot. What does shot mean in this context? Thank you.

Hello sidonie!

Thank you for the kind words! In answer to your question, if you watch the video, Nick and Michael are playing snooker, a British game like pool. 'A shot' in snooker is when you hit the white ball into the other balls. With 'Your shot', Nick is telling Michael it his turn to play. We sometime use 'Your shot' to mean 'Your go' or 'Your try' in other situations, too.
Hope that helps!
