Dear friends, I'm new plz help me in listening lessons, should I listen then answer the questions, at the end I should open the transcript ??

Hello hamayoon,

I think that's a good way to use the material. First do the tasks on the page, then check your answers. After that, listen again with the transcript, using it to see why any of your answers were incorrect. You can also use the transcript to read aloud along with the speaker, which can help you to develop more fluent speech.

Hello. Is it mistake in first task - “do you know Alyssa” instead “do you remember Alyssa” ?
Hello Ransom 'Do you know Alyssa?' is also grammatically correct here, but is not as specific as 'Do you remember Alyssa?' In general, we say 'Do you know ...?' when we don't know if the other person has met the other person. In this case, Charles knows that Julian met Alyssa, which is why he says 'Do you remember Alyssa?' instead. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
I meet new people every now and then, generally when I sometimes participate in lecture or trainings in some institutions. There are too many people that I don't know and I greet some who are near me. Also, when I go to birthday of my relatives or friends.
