Hello Mostafa,
We know that our users in Iran can't see our videos. We're trying to find a solution to this problem.

Oh Ashlie. She's beuatiful. I wonder all of the British girls are nice ? :D

Stephen says "excuse me",though.

I think he should say "excuse us" .Because they are two.

When do you use "me" ?

'Excuse me' is a very common phrase, so people use it in many situations where it might be technically more accurate to say something else. 'Excuse us' makes sense, but you won't hear people using it very often.

Thank you, Adam.
I thought it was cool to say 'Excuse me' accurately in any situations.

Hi everybody
I like travel to beach especially. I like the song which was played when people dancing, please tell the name of it
Thank you.

Hi Tan,
The song that is playing in the ballroom is called 'L'Amour Conjugé' and is by Christian Marsac.
