Hello mariaidabertocchi,

The best thing to do is to use the search facility (click on the magnifying glass at the top-right of the page) and type in 'C2'. You will see only a few results, but if you then also try C1 then you will find many more. Materials for C1 and C2 are quite similar - they are all authentic and ungraded in terms of difficulty, so both should be useful for you.

in the script ,it says : Some historic treasure dates back even further

Hello englishnoob,

You're welcome ,actually I thought this site is about to closed down because as I see nobody cares about it .Do you still make new videos ?

Hello englishnoob,

I'm not sure why you would have that impression! We add content regularly and answer comments and questions every day. Videos take quite a long time to produce and put on the site but we certainly do create new ones. In the last year, for example, we added a whole new series of Word on the Street.

 

Best wishes,

Hello KhalidiJumialy,

Thanks for letting us know you appreciate our work – it always helps to hear this! 

You can search for content by level on our Find out your English level page (see part 2), but in any case, I'd encourage you to start reading and listening to content made for native speakers, e.g. at TED.com, The Guardian, etc.

Let us know if you need any other help and good luck!

All the best,

Frankly speaking, it’s not easy to answer the question about one of the oldest monuments in one’s culture and I’m pretty sure that ninety-five percent of population of most countries won’t manage to do it without using the internet or relevant books. And I’m no exception. So having searched the internet for the answer I’ve found that the oldest site of historical interest in Ukraine - which was listed as a World-Heritage site in 2013 by UNESCO – is Chersoneus which is an ancient Greek colony founded approximately 2,500 years ago in the southwestern part of the Crimean Peninsula. I’ve never been there.
I think that spending reasonable amount of government money on studying places of exceptional historical interest is OK.

I am not able to differentiate between island and Ireland when pronounced in Standard British English. Any suggestions?
