i have trouble here.i cant remember the conversation so ican not fill the gabs
i wish you can advice me

Hello sumaya,

Listening skills develop over time with practice, so there's nothing wrong with using different techniques to help yourself as you go. For example, you can pause the text as you listen so that you have more time. You can use the transcript so that you can read and listen at the same time. You can listen once or twice (and read) before you attempt the tasks.

Remember that there is no single correct way to learn. What is important is that you find the approach which works for you at your stage of learning.


In the future, as you improve, you may find that different approaches work better. For now, try using the script and the pause button and that may help you.

In my second year at university, I sold a dish called Rice noodles with Barbecue. My business was not bad because there were quite lots of customers coming and buying my food. I saved some money for myself as well.
I guess a good salesman needs to be confident and funny a bit. He also must have a belief in his products so he could persuade people to buy.
It's Ok if the problem is small otherwise I will certainly complain to the customer service and get my money back.

I've never made anything to sell except in my childhood when I bought some paintings to my sister.


guys I have a question please help me,
is "bottom-dweller " bad word and does it mean specifically?

Hello Mojtaba Omer,

Yes, 'bottom-dweller' refers to a person of low moral character without scruples, willing to use any means to achieve his or her goals. It is not a rude word in the sense of profanity but it is highly pejorative.

I've never made things to sell, but once I bought soft drinks to resell them in order to make pocket money with my brother.
A good salesperson need to be confident, he has to know his products. And first of all, he has to be kind with people.
If i've got a problem with something I bought, I throw it to the person's face who sold it to me. Just joking. No, I bring it back to him and try to have an other one. If I can't find a good item, I ask for a refund.

Hi Team.
Sorry , as usual, Could you help me, please? ;)
I want to record these words or sentences in mind with the right understanding. Honestly, I've a confusion with the sentences "What about" and "How about".
Ashlie : What about this Stephen?
(Ashlie shows a big painting to Stephen)
So, I make conclusion that "what about" here is about Noun but not Human, a painting.
Shop Assistant : sure, how about this? It's candle-making kit.
and then, I get distructed when the shop assistant said "How about this".
"How about" here is also about Noun, isn't it?
Why didn't he use "What about here"?
What about you? or How about you?
Which ones is correct?
Thank you very much.

Hello Nizam Balinese,

There is very little difference between these and I cannot think of a context in which they would not be interchangeable.

The only real difference in use is when you want to introduce an objection or problem. For this you use 'what about':

The bed is fine but what about the chairs? They're horrible!
