Hello Micheal,

Thanks for commenting. You can find comments sections on most of our pages and you're welcome to use them as often as you like. It's a great way to practise expressing yourself in writing and sometimes communicating with other users as well.

We don't correct the comments on our page as we're a small team here at LearnEnglish and we have many thousands of users, so it's just not possible for us to do that.

Good luck with your learnIng!

Hi all

Just wondering if it is just me but the videos on this site do not seem to be working....

I just get a small flickering circle in the middle of the (video) window....


Hi Gotanno,

I've checked several videos on the site and they appear to be working correctly, so I would imagine that this is a compatibility issue. Some devices have problems with some kinds of multimedia, so please try accessing the site on a different device – a non-mobile device if possible – to see if that helps.

Could anyone help me,please?Top Sounds: What does it mean?

I think that Top Sound was the name of the magazine

Thank you Dito980 for your help.

Hello doxa1956

I'm afraid I can't say for sure without knowing the context, but it could be that 'top' means 'best' here. The word 'top' is often used in the title of a list of some sort, e.g. 'The top 10 songs of 2018' or 'The top 5 places to visit in Kalamata'.

All the best

Thanks Kirk for the immediate reply. I do understand the meaning of "top" but in this video Gemma asks the shopkeeper: "How much is this magazine?" and the shopkeeper says "Let's see...Top Sounds,that's £1.99".It doesn't make sense.
