Hi Tomoe,
I have 2 concerns that would like to ask you.
1. 払(はら)わず席(せき)まで行(い)くと. What does "わず" mean, what kind of grammar in this sentence ?
2. In the text, you said 価格(かかく) means price, but I heard you spoke something like "chocotipcooki to ko-hi- no negan wa"? I cannot hear clearly on this.

Thanks Tomoe,

1. Harawazu means Dont pay.
Wazu わず= shinai しない
Harawanai はらわない de で= harawazu はらわずni に

2. Did I say Nedanねだん instead of kakaku かかく?sorry. I'm on travel in Nepal. I can't check the audio.I'm not sure Id like teach different words or accidentally say that.
Kakaku and Nedan is same meaning. ;)

Yeah, that's right, it's "ねだん" that you spoke in the audio, just a little bit confused with 'kakaku' but it's gone now :-), thanks for your explanation.

P/S: when I heard this audio for the first time, it was fast for me to follow. But after several times listening and answering the questions, I can catch your speed and repeat so fluently :-). I haven't even thought that Japanese can be spoken so easily before.
Many thanks for your audios.

Can you help to explain why you use "Kuro ga ... kara desu" instead of "Kuro wa ... kara desu". You say that most of the time.

Thank you.

You mean in my question I asked Naze Akiko wa Kuro ni okorimashitaka? Kuro ga ... desu.

Because of the 'ga' is kind of say strongly that's Kuro( the subject) not other.

Akiko ga ikimashita ka?
Hai, akiko ga ikimashita.

Akiko wa ikimashita ka?
Hai akiko wa ikimashita.
Hai akiko ga ikimashita. ( It feel that there is other but akiko the one who went.)

Yes, that's what I mean. Your explanation is concise :-)

Thanks so much
