Hello..
I want to know what this sentence means...And They only ever last for two weeks..
Regards

Hello Asina,

Magda is saying that Fadi has girlfriends for a short time (two weeks). 'last' means something like 'continue'.

All the best,

Hi LearnEnglish Team,

Could you help me understand the phrase "Get out of here!" in this episode? It means " that's impossible"?

Thank you,
Kaofeng

Hello Kaofeng,

In this context (and in many others), 'get out of here' is a way of saying 'no' with a lot of emphasis. In other words, Fadi strongly denies that he is jealous. Another common way of saying this is 'No way!'

Hello Kirk,

Thank you very much! I now know how to use this phrase 'get out of here' in real situations.

Have a nice day!

Best regards,
Kaofeng

He's right to ask a reasonable amount for his work. (He's = is? or He's = he has?).

Hello Evgenia111,

The full phrase here is 'He is right to...'

 

Best wishes,

what are " I’m going to take Harry up on his offer" and " it won’t matter if you turn him down." mean?

Hello GRU,

'take somebody up on their offer' means to accept their offer. 'matter' means to be important, so what Fadi means is that if Olivia doesn't give Harry work, it won't be important because Fadi will give him work.

All the best,

Really thank you
