Hi,
Hary and Fadi don't have a British accent, innit? Where they come from, according to the script.

Hi Al Walker,

Harry's accent is quite typically London, as are Olivia's and Fadi's.

Sarah has a Chinese accent and Magda is Polish.

Dear Peter,
Thanks a lot!

Dear Team, in Preparation task it refers:
''an excessive desire for food, drink, etc. = greedy''.But ''greedy'' is an adjective whereas we rather need the noun ''greediness'', as it refers to a relative situation ''excessive desire''.What do you think?

Hello nikoslado

Yes, you are right, and I'm sorry if that caused any confusion.

We plan to revise this section soon, and when we do, we will rephrase that definition so that it is appropriate for an adjective.

Thanks.

Best wishes

I can't remember the names of theirs. Many mistakes i have done in this series. Any way, some words, like greedy , offend, keep them keen are got to use for next. In sensitive, in expensive and in experienced are my news words.I want to be greedy man on somethings. But i am afraid letting someone offend. I just want to keep them keen instead of.

Thanks a lot for the exercise, it's very useful.

"Greedy" means excessive desire for food, drink, etc. But in this audio I don't feel Harry is Greedy. So, What does mean in here Greedy?

Hello amit_ck

'greedy' often refers to money. As Olivia says, all he seems to be interested in is money -- that's the meaning here.

All the best
