  • How do you feel about animals? If you've been to Britain, do you think what Tess and Ravi said is true - are the British pet lover?
  • How do people view animals where you live? How common is it for people to have pets in your country? Do you have one? What kind?

I want to say thanks to British Council. You are good teachers. It's a very valuable material, I've been listening podcast for late months and it is improve my listening. Thank you for all.
Concerning animal language I think every kind of animals have their own system of communication and they can understand each other. But can for example British sheep understand their brethren from Venezuela? It's a big question! Likely their languages slightly differ from each other )))

Hello Abdullha05,

Thank you for your lovely comment. It's great to know that we are helping and motivating people!

Perhaps sheep have some form of sign language that they could use, or else a code such as Morse Code...

I think the best place for the first date is a walk in the park with an ice cream and just hearing the sounds of the nature. In the first date you should introduce yourself and try to know each other better. It would be better with no pressure of time or space, so, choose a park where you can take a great walk and just focus on the talk and the other one. Although it can sound boring, I like it and in my humble opinion is the best way to know about the things she likes, hobbies, kind of music she likes and dances, sports that she practice and so on.

Hi i have big problem with the grammar!Help !

Hello wariatka,

In every episode of Elementary Podcasts, there's a section where grammar and/or vocabulary is discussed. We also have two grammar sections - English Grammar and Quick Grammar - that you can refer to, but I would recommend listening to Elementary Podcasts and working through the exercises there. Then you can look for the grammar talked about in each episode in our grammar section to get a little more practice.

If you have a question about a specific grammar point, please search for it in our grammar. After reading about it there, if you're still not sure about it, you're welcome to ask us a specific question in the comments on the appropriate page.

All the best,
Kirk

This is the last podcast of series 3. I am really grateful for what you've done for us. I can train my ears everyday and it's really fantastic to know about British culture. I like learning about cultures of all countries in the world. I hope I will visit Britain one day.

Good evening. The noises that animals make are the same as in my language. They're only a bit different but almost all are pronounced so.
I know this because in my childhood I used to talk with all animals that I met. I was so nice because sometimes when I did not know how to say a word for an animal my parents taught me.
And about Emily and Cameron, I sure that things between them will be ok.
I think that a good place for the first date is a walk in the park. Because you can feel free to talk and to act better than into a restaurant or a noisy place like a cinema.
All the time I had a better feeling outdoor than indoor and I think when you are in the nature it's easier to be you.
So, now I finished this podcast it was longer than 1 or 2 buat it was so intersesting and my english is better now.
Many thanks to all the team, Elementary Podcast.
