Sorry! i can't hear well.

The most usual way that I use to ask some one repeat a sentence is ' please repeat' or ' Sorry I can't understand you' or I say 'what?'

I had never heard the first one!

It is great but i got a chance to attend the class here in Addis Ababa,Ethiopia. when i took listening assessment a bit different from this.

It's really so nice topic.

Thanks so much!

Hello Sir, is it correct sentence: "I recite incantation in the morning".

Hello Muhammad Erad,

The word 'incantation' is used in certain contexts, but, for example, in the Abrahamic religions people don't recite incantations -- instead they 'pray' or 'recite prayers'.

All the best,
