Firsr of all, happy thanksgiving for you all, especially for LearnEnglish team.
You, guys, are doing pretty good. Thank you so much!
I got really benefit from this website, it's undoubtedly useful for learning or improving people's English.

The most important thing that led me in here is that there is a missing word in the transcribt.
Check it please!


Hello Munirah,

Thanks for your kind wishes and for telling us you think there's a mistake in the transcript. Could you please tell us the timecode (e.g. 2:33) of the recording when the missing word is heard, we'd be very grateful.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

what does harry mean when he said: if you take into account the work i'll have to put into it, and all my time.

Hello baabor275,

'If you take into account...' means 'When you consider...'. In the example you give, Harry is saying that the cost is not great when you consider how much time he has to spend on it, how much work he has to do and so on.

Best wishes,

Thanks. It realy good information for me!

Is it correct to paraphrase this sentence like this .
Original text ( I’ll have to have a word with my
uncle )
Paraphrased ( I need to speak with my uncle )

Hi Osaymar,

Yes, those forms have more or less the same meaning.

Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

It'd be good if it is like this:
I need to speak to my uncle.

Thank you very much Mr AdamJK
