Hello nasir.anzoor,

'Could do with...' means 'I could do with...', which means 'They would be useful to me'.

'For ages' means 'for a very long time'.

'Tasty tasting' is not something we'd usually say. It is a joke here: the man says the sandwich is 'tasty looking' and the woman responds that it is 'tasty tasting'; in other words, the woman says it looks tasty and the man replies that it is tasty.

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

sorry I like don't live !! (

I live very much this site ^^

Hi. I can't hear clearly and I see the transcript but know, they talk very fast, sound don't like what I saw. Can you give me a advice?

Hi boyane,

Practice makes perfect! It takes time to develop your ear. I have two main suggestions. First, listen to an episode many times - at least five or six! If it's still very difficult to follow, then I'd suggest trying Word on the Street or the Elementary Podcasts, which are a bit slower.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

hi, i have i question about "can" and "could", its well known that "could" is the past form of "can", but sometimes i see sentences where "could" is used in present tenses, in questions also in answers, so how to get the actual use of these words, like i am confused as peoples says, for example ;( you can go to Karachi today after one hour, ) and ( you could go to Karachi today after one hour, )
