Sammy and Julia are happy to go shopping together. What could possibly go wrong?

Yes, It was happened.

Once my family and my laws went to a fair. Me and my brother-in-law visited all the shops for a precious gift. And then we lost my wife and mother-in-law. Then we contacted them on their mobile and ask for direction. It took almost half an hour to find them.

A wonderful site. Greetings to the group of 105 MSLU and to the best teacher of Juliya Alexandrovna;)

when I am near to them I ask them to make a certain movement like raise your hand please :) ...or ask them about their clothes color. Some times they find my before.

My husband and I can hardly ever meet in public places. It has been like that since our first date and we've been together for twenty-five years now. We just do not separate when we go out together or we agree on a meeting point. Cell phones help us a lot.

Yes, I have several times I could not see my friends at the waiting spots, and because it was when there were no mobile phone available, I just had to go about or stand at the point patiently until the friend shows up. In the end, I had to go back home sadly since I was not able to see her/him after two hours of searching...

If you lose in public place without phone, you should ask staff to put out imformation of the people you are looking for

We don't go anywhere without mobile phones. It makes to find someone easy.

20 years ago, I had an appointment with my girlfriend in Nha Trang City. But on the street I had been get a big traffic jam and I was late to see her. At that time mobile phone still not used on the world and she very angry and but still waited for me. Now she is my wife.

my question is whether it is allowed - just for my private learning process - to use the audio track of the video separately? That would be a big help!
Thank you

Hello Bernd,

I'm afraid we can't make the audio available offline. Some of our content is created in collaboration with other institutions such as the BBC and we are governed by various regulations as far as what we can make available for download goes.
