in the conversation of Lock ness scene 1 Ashlie says to stephen like " Fancy a break "

Hi Prabhanakar, fancy a break could mean a time for vacation or to travel and enjoy another places. 

That's an idiom. Meaning that to hope that things will happen in the way you want them to 。

what is the meaning of " Fingers crossed ". i ditn't understand. pls explain

If you enter 'fingers crossed' into the Cambridge Dictionaries Online box at the right hand side of the page, it will tell you what it means.

Guys, did you see somethings strange in the video??
It's moved from the left corner to the place where she standed in the begining of the video.

I love nature walk. When my baby was 8 months my husband , friends and I went  to hike. It was so fun. Our path was full of  steep, bushes and finally end to  the blue sea. I walked along with carrying a baby, but it wasn't a big issue to enjoyed my trip .


shop assistant gave 2 pounds 50 for the change to her ,though.

but why ? the book costs 2 pounds 50 , doesn't it ?


Ashlie gave the shop assistant five pounds (you can hear her say 'There's five') and that's why she got £2.50 change when she bought the book.

Thank you, Adam

I could not listen to her saying 'there's five'. shamed (^_^メ)

by the way, it's so hard for Jap to listen to English accent.

I always wonder if 2 English (British and American) are really the same language.
