I've listened to the elementary podcasts since series one and I'd like to say a realy big THANK YOU to the British Council LearnEnglish team.
Your work have helped me so much, in diferents ways. Talking, learnig, reading, lenguages, all the stuf I you've taught have been useful to me until nowadays, and I belive that so many other studants have the same opinion. I've shared the podcats with a lot of friends and all they got stunned.
In the next series I'd like to participate with coments and reading other students coments.
In case it's possible I'd like to say it would be my pleasure to participate of the show, if you need or like so.
I've to say that I became a fun of Tess and Ravi, and Gordon's jokes. They were increadeble. LOL.
I'll be here looking looking for the series five.
Thank you again.

Best wishes.

Pablo Alves.

Hello Pablo,

Thanks so much for letting us know how much you've learned by listening to Elementary Podcasts! We work hard on each series, so it's really great to hear that people find them so useful.

We definitely look forward to your participation here in the comments in Series 5. It will probably be difficult for us to have guests on the show, but we'll certainly keep you and anyone else who expresses interest here in mind.

Thanks for your willingness to participate!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

where is carlina , i just want to talk to her

Hello sir,

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for all of your podcasts, they are really helpful. I've learn many things including new things, knowledge, ways to learn English, and many languages of course. So please come back with a new series. I look forward to hearing your new audios.
The second things I want to ask you is the word "stuff", I see that it is used so many times in English, but I don't know how to use it, for example "loads of stuff"... Could you talk about this language in the next series. I hope I can understand clearly how to use it in English.
Thank you very much!

All the best,
Rosie Phan

Hello Rosie,

Thanks very much for letting us know that you've found Elementary Podcasts helpful. We work hard on them and so it's great to know they help people.

'stuff' is a versatile word and I'll certainly suggest it for series 5 - thanks for your input. In the meantime, I think I've already suggested you look it up in the dictionary to see the example sentences there - if not, that might help you a bit for now.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Kirk,
I also wait for you! I really like your Elementary Podcasts and it's help me to learn English.

Sir I want to understand the meaning of the phrase "or a resort..." used between a sentence.

Hello mishraanuj,

I'm afraid that I'm not sure what phrase you mean here - it doesn't look like any normally used phrase that I can think of. Perhaps you can post the whole sentence in which you saw it and then we will try to help you.

What is difference between expresions "here you are" and "there you are"?How I know both forms are used when we hand something requested or desired to anyone,please explain when we should use "there you are" instead of "here you are"?
