Hi)i need your help... i can't see "World on the street" How can i solve this problem?

Hello! Thanks to the british council team for sharing such amazing datas with us!


P.S.: could you tell me the song name in 3:30 please. Thanks in advance ~~~

Have you ever slept outdoors?

Yes!. It was a music festival in a countryside. It was a farm and I was 15 years old . I was member of a musical group and never had been at a kind of event like that. It was a big surprise when me and my band arrived there. There were a lot of people in all parts. Some people had tents but others no. We were there and had to sleep below the stage. It was terrible because it was cold!

Do you enjoy camping? Why / Why not?

I love to camping because it is an unique opportunity to stay close to nature. I live in a region which has many beautiful places to camping.

Have you ever been to a big festival? What activities are there to do?

Yes. Like a musician. It was an interesting life experience. I don´t know how is the feeling to participate in the middle of audience. Talking about activities I think that it depend on people to people. There are several business around that kind of events. For example: sale foods, drinks, etc.


Dear AdamJk,

- I´ve got the same Baran´s problem! I can listen to the audio but not watch the video.  I´ve tried to access it through that informed link but I had to subscribe to reach it.


Dear Távora,

I'm sorry to hear you can't see the video. Can you watch any other episodes of Word on the Street?

1. Yes, I slept outdoors when I went camp in my high school.

2.Oh, I love camping so much . Because I can live with nature, play free and breathe fresh air.

3. My hometown operates Festival every two years but it's not interesting, it often has fair, fashion show, but camping like where Stephen and Aslie arrived..

Hi Adam, I don't remember exactly meaning of " every two years". In third answer, I mean the festival has been hold in 2008, 2010, 2012,.... Can you remind me of the meaning of " every two years ". Thank you so much.



It's very simple; 'every two years' means one year on and one year off. Like you say, something happening in 2008, 2010, 2012 etc. happens 'every two years'.

I hope that helps.

Best wishes,
