Please help me!!
"What is the cost?" is not the question to ask price?? Or does it use to ask price for just one item only?
"What does that come to?" this is the first time I know this sentences. Do people use it in common? Which case should I use it?

Hello
Nice to meet you.
Thanks for joining this training courses.

I am please to know this web site. I know here through the teacher training in Korea as someone mentioned below. It's amazing to know it. I think I can study English more effectively. ^^ I am thankful.  Anyway, there was an assignment to comment about "Who would you most like to meet?" I would say "My mom!  Because I haven't seen her since she passed away 15 years ago."  

Hello.
Nice for me to be here but I am very disappointed for myself. It was very hard to understand the dialog on podcast. I think I'm too familiar with American accent rather than British accent. On the contrary, it will be a good chance for me to get used to British English.
By the way, I would like to meet the pop legend, "the beatles" especially  spiritual singer, "John Lennon"! I love his song.
Can you make it?
Truly yours.
Chan.

Hi.
I try once again to make a comment on this podcast. I failed twice to upload my comments. I don't understand what is wrong with my work. Sorry.
Truly yours.
Chan.

Hi Chan,
Your comments have published fine. Sometimes it takes a little time for them to appear.
Best wishes,

Who would you most like to meet?
Of course , my teacher for training course next week. But I am afraid now. 
Because I am poor men all life. 
Also I wish to meet Mrs.Grazywa in Bydgoszcz,  Polska

It is my pleasure for that i start English lesson again.
I am 42 years old man. After graduating Unversity, I haver never studied English.
so, Studying English is a big challenge to me.
 
Answer : I don't like music. and I don't know foreign songs. But when i heard 'Mariah Carey' singes a song, I was surprised at her voice. it was 20years ago. 
but, i don't want to meet her. Oh, bother it.

Hello Learn English podcast and all the teachers who will join the teacher training course next week. Who I want to meet most in person now is Jason mraz.
  I like his song  called 'lucky',,if you want to listen that song  just check on the any website. See you next week.

Hi!
Is it kind of homework????
If it must be a famous person, I'd like to meet is Mr. No, Ex-president of Korea who suicided several years ago.  I've never seen him directly and have been hearing so many people love him  and those met him directly, I think.
and I'd like to feel his sense of humor, his  philosophy and his politic opinions....
Best wishes,
May--- one of trainee....
