Hi dlis,

The system has been reformed in recent years and there are now several parliaments in the UK. Scotland has its own Scottish Parliament, Wales has the Welsh National Assembly and Northern Ireland has the Northern Ireland Assembly.

Hello, I'm just a beginner and I want to download these videos. How can I download these videos?

Hello zawpaing,

I'm afraid our videos are not available for download for legal reasons. All of our audio content (e.g. articles in the Magazine, Elementary Podcasts and Big City Small World) are available for you, however, so you might want to look at them.

All the best,

Hi editor , I want to give a sugesstion
I find it better to learn with videos than sounds only ,maybe its because you can see people moving their mouths and your brains keep those images and repeat them later when you speak .So please make more videos , simple ones please
don;t go with the boring Elementary podcast or things like that
BRITISH COUNCIL PLEASEEEEE !!!

Hi englishnoob,

Thank you for the suggestion. People learn in different ways and some people prefer to use audio than video, particularly as an audio file is generally quite small and can be stored easily on mobile devices. We try to provide a wide range of materials so that everyone can find something which is helpful for them.

Hello team! I am trying to match the words with the descriptions but i can't do it. where do i have to click first? Thanks.

Hello mary nastase,

First you have to click on the word and then you click on the space where you want it to go. It should then move there.

Let us know if you need any more help!

Hi!

I can't find where to click to watch the video...! Can you help?

Hello Mandon,

You should be able to click anywhere in the video player, which is between the green 'Preparation' bar and the 'Watch the video' title. If you cannot see the video player at all then it probably means that you have a compatibility issue with your device or browser. You can try accessing the site on a different device or browser to see if this solves the problem for you.
