Hello Priyanka Bhagat,

In his introduction Richard talks about shops outside London:

Small specialist shops can be found all over the country. The Lanes in Brighton are made up of a fabulous web of small streets with lots of quirky shops and boutiques. They’re a great place to discover original fashion, furniture and accessories…

We have the only one market in Yangon as i know. It's called ' Bo Chote' market. you can buy anything whatever you want there.A lot of foreigners from different countries are visits there. Some shops are reasonable price but some are more expensive other supermarket. If i had a stall in London, i have sold hand make goods from Myanmar.

There are a lots of markets in my country,you can buy fresh fishes ,fresh fruit, clothes,unterwears and other things.
If i had a stall i would probably sell hotdogs.

Hi...I don't know how to pronounce " St. Jame " exactly. Plz guide me. Tks

Hi Vu Anh Van,

You can hear how 'St. James' is pronounced in the video. I'm not sure what other help we can give you, as we don't know how you are pronouncing it or which sounds are difficult for you. All I can suggest is listening to the correct pronunciation and trying to get as close as you can.
