Hi Elisabeth,


In this case, I'd say he sounds more jealous (not in a bad way) than cynical. The way this series is designed is that this particular character is always the cynical one, that's why you hear this in other lessons too.


Let me know if you have any similar questions about any expression in this series.


Cheers,


Stefania

«Use this expression to show you're feeling cynical»???? What does he mean? He says this in several lessons. I think it sounds strange....
