    Hi Martin and Dan the Man! 🙂
    TYPO ALERT! Two before the last, ‘brothel’ instead mates 🙂 🙂

  2. Sandro says:

    Hi Mart, very good job with Dan.
    Question for you:
    I don’t hear what you have just said.
    What can I say:
    1″ What did you say ? ” or
    2″What have you said ?”

    • Martman99 says:

      Hi Sandro! 🙂 We say “what did you say” as the action of speaking is finished, so we use the past simple – I hope this helps! 🙂
