    getting the part

    hi,


    I can't understand a sentence with "getting the part"
    for example: His audition went well and he's fairly hopeful about getting the part

    your help is really appreciated

    Welcome to the forum, roham.

    He auditioned for a part. That means to demonstrated his acting ability in a role in order to be hired to play the part. He is optimistic about being given the job.

    Remember that punctuation and capitalisation are important, no matter how short the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
