I couldn't understand what to do in forth section. Who can tell me about it?

Hello Aibek Shegebaev,

In some sentences both 'that' and 'which' are possible; you should write 'that/which' in the gap for these sentences.

In other sentences only 'which' is possible; you should write 'which' in the gap for these sentences.

Best wishes,

Great content. I don't suppose these videos are downloadable in any way, are they? The place I teach doesn't have any internet access, and I would love to play them the Innovation is Great vid.

Hello Adrienne,

Thank you for your comment - it's nice to know that our site is appreciated.  I'm afraid the videos are not downloadable, for technical and legal reasons.  You can, however, give your students the address to the relevant page and they can watch the video themselves that way (for homework, for example).  Registration and all of the materials on LearnEnglish are entirely free and your students would no doubt benefit from having access to the site.  I know several teachers, for example, who ask their students to register for the site and then set some pages here for homework.

Best wishes,

Great videos, very professional, and even though they are designed to be used by the student on his/ her own, they work well in class with both one to ones and groups.

Great technologies. I always have a dream that I will invent something before 50. Something like a wind turbine from the "Green is great". Loving that.
Invent this website is also a great innovation for the British Council and The Learning English Team :). Cheers!

Thanks, Anh Quân!

hi everyone
i do really like this video as it talk about technology and innovation 
i am really exciting about knowing that there are some many gadgets which make  life easier and environment cleaner . i am very interested  about dayson's products .they are very amazing and helpful with new design and new ideas which i guess they  will lower the using of electricity . i hope  that i can own one  of them one day and wish from you to give me a lot more information about dayson's products how they are working 

what about the to create a towel made of any material  that get dry as you clean your hands and of course is also hygienic.

Why I can't watch the video?
