Hello,

I don't understand " Olivia, if it makes it easier for you, I think I’m going to take Harry up on his offer. I’ll get him to do some work for me, then it won’t matter if you turn him down "
I don't understand what he is mean ?

Thank you

Hello walaa,

Harry has offered to do some work for Olivia. It is too expensive for her but she is worried that if she says 'no' he will be upset. Fadi tells her that Harry will be working for him (Fadi) so he already has some work and will not be upset with her if she says 'no'.

I hope you'll be able to solve the problen with online dictionary! Thanks a lot!

Thank you, I have. Your site is very interesting!

Yes, living in London is expensive, but the solution is as easy as ABC, you just move out of London and decide to live in the country... I always love country side. I hate big cities like London or Tokyo. I prefer to live in Ladakh, in India, for example.

hello
when olivia said " not very sensitive,harry " she wanted to say he was not understanding sarah's feeling. Didn't she?

Hi mina66,

Yes, that's right!

All the best,

Living is London may cost you an arm and a leg... Situation in Tokyo is the same, that's reason why I live in Saitama, 50km north of centre of Tokyo, it's convenient enough since I can take a train to go to Tokyo in an hour.
