Hello! I can't match the audio with the transcript for the question "have you got cold ones?" I think I'm listening "you've got cold ones?" Am I wrong? Sorry, but I'm not used to english conversations. Thank you very much for your patience!

Hello Southern Pilgrim,

It is quite hard to catch, isn't is? English uses weak forms for many words when they are unstressed in the sentence.

The word have in isolation or when it is stressed is pronounced /hæv/.

When have is unstressed it is pronounced /həv/ or even /əv/. That is why it is hard to hear in the dialogue.

Thank you very much Peter!

Hi can i help you
How much this magazine
Is that everything?
Ok let me see top sound

Good conversation for a A1 beginner level.anyway I wonder if the phrases "here you are" & "here you go" mean the same thing.

Hello Sridhar reddy,

When we are giving something to somebody the phrases 'Here you are' and 'Here you go' have the same meaning. 'Here you go' is more informal, I would say.

Thanks for answering.

New phrases I´ve learned:
- Have you got cold ones
- Shopkeeper
- Sweets

It was very nice. Thanks a lot!

Thank you for making this video. It was really a nice and clear conversation. It is easy to understand. I have learnt a few words as "shopkeeper", "sweets". I think even if we have a good level sometimes we must see some notions again so to be sure to control them. I hope for this new year that there will be new lessons for A1 and A2 Level.

Hi AyoubDZ93

We're very glad to hear that you learned something from the video. We do plan to produce more videos in the future, but I'm afraid it will be some time before they are ready. In the meantime, however, you can find a few more videos at the A1 and A2 levels on our sister site, LearnEnglish Teens.

All the best
