Hi, who can easily explain to me the words <chit chat>, thank you.

Hi Jolantaa,

'Chit chat' is conversation about unimportant things. The type of chat that you'd have with a friends when there is nothing particular you need to talk about.

Hi Jolantaa,

I chose 'chit chat' for this group of tests to give the idea of 'small talk' when people talk to each other almost when there is nothing much to say and often for the sake of making conversation.

Dear teachers,
You can explain the different between "call" and "talk"? And what does the number ' 6 3 4 9 5 ' mean?

You asked me about my current situation.
What about you? Do you have your own extension at work?
As you know, I always want to hear about your current situation so I can help you
even better improve your English.

Currently I've big problems understanding the accent of people who are working with me.
English language used by the teacher is clear and understandable. Thank you for Alan's

I'm happy with every new test from you.

All the best
