Thank you very much for choosing such a good conversation

Love it to bits! Thank you for the great work, The LearnEnglish Team!

"That's no harm in looking." I don't know what that means. Can someone tell me?

Hi Kyawklwin,

'There's no harm in looking' means 'if I look, nothing bad will happen'. Harry means that even though he already has work, it won't cause any problems if he looks for better work. Note that the phrase is 'There's no harm in ...' not 'That's not harm in ...' (which is incorrect).

All the best,

when Olivia ask Harry that he already got many jobs offer to choose from, he respond "well, have, there is no .... in looking it isn't it" what was that ... word?

Hello researcho2016,

You can find the words spoken in each episode in the Transcript. If you look just under Task 4, you'll see it. A good resource for finding the meaning of words and phrases you don't know is the Cambridge Dictionary, though if you still don't understand after looking there, please don't hesitate to ask us.

All the best,

hello

and if I go to look in the diccionary always writ missing I don't know way

Hello concha62,

In the Cambridge Dictionary, you can find a definition and example sentences of 'hang on' (follow the link), which is a very useful phrasal verb indeed!

I don't understand a idiom " what's going on?" please tell me how to use it ?
Thanks

Hello Anhntt141,

'What's going on' means the same as 'what's happening', but of course the context is crucial in understanding why the speaker says it. In the context of this text, for example, it means something like 'it's important to know what the current situation is', but in other contexts that might change.

 

Best wishes,

Peter
