It's always good to keep in touch with old friends.

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

i have same problem for find someone to speack english with him

Good to give advice on ‘how to greet somebody you haven’t seen for ages’, as such situations can be a bit uncomfortable at times. Not always easy to know what questions to ask or how best to reply. Very useful language too. …Thank you!

Hi to all,
 
Sir,
Please let me know how can I download the the video on my computer.?
 
thanking you,

Hi Harish,
I'm afraid that at the moment we don't allow visitors to download videos. There are technical and legal reasons why this is a problem, but it's something we'd like to offer where possible in the future.
In the meantime, if you press play and then pause as soon as the video starts, then wait for the bar to move across the bottom of the video, it will load in the background and you can watch it without interruption. It will take some time, but you can do something else while you are waiting.
Best wishes,
Adam

Hi Jeo,

It's possible to miss words out of sentences when it's clear what they should be. It's called 'ellipsis'.

I hope that helps,
