Good evening to everyone.
Unfortunately it was the last episode, but I'm happy because I follow all the series from 1 to 4. It was nice but I do a lot of work to learn and to go through all of them and I had learned a lot fof new word. Actually these all series had learned me to speak English as an intermediate level B1 or B2/
I'm not happy because they're finished now, but I feel really confident and proud because I have finished all series. It wasn't easy I had to work a lot because when I start my English it was really really bad, even I wasn't able to present myself.
But now as you can see my English is on intermediate level.
I enjoyed all of the series but I think the series first and second it was the series that I love more, maybe because it was a bit hard at the beginning or maybe because it was more interesting maybe it was more fanny or maybe due to the jokes there was really funny all of them,my favorite one it was that with the chicken with three legs I'm sure you remember.
I won't stop here because I aim to speak English really well so I decided start another course and my choice it was ..Big City Small World..
I want to finish with thanks. Thank you British Council, and thanks a lot to the team for all works and thank you because this web site could exist.

Hello Adriancatanescu,

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

Series 5 will be published in the future, so you don't have to say goodbye to the podcasts entirely.

I think Big City Small World is a good choice and I hope you enjoy following the adventures of those characters.

Thanks again,


Best wishes,

Hello, I'm Sunhwa from Korea. I have been living in Singapore for four months. I searched internet to study English by myself. Finally, I have found this site. Thank you very much. It is very helpful to me. Especially the diversity of verb is good for me. It is not boring but very interesting spisode. There are many useful expressions in the middle of episode. I have understood the gramatical structure and future tense in the sentenses even tense is present. I am looking forward to another neutritional spisode. Thanks a lot again.

All the best,


I need to say thank you for great job you (British Council) provided to us, every day I hear a little or poadcast and this is helping me so much. Noe I have a question. When the season 5 will be available? Thanks again

Hi jr_nunes,

Hello sir,
There are many things I really really want to hear from your podcasts in the fifth series.
Firstly, I'm a big fan of Harry Potter series, I know that the Harry Potter Studio is in Britain, why don't you talk about this topic because I think Harry Potter is really "a British thing".
Secondly, it's hard to understand the meanings of the names in English, isn't it? I mean if you talk about the meanings of the names in English as well as the ways people usually use to name their children, it's really a good idea for me to learn more about British culture.
Thirdly, could you explain how to use the word "though" in different ways in one of the podcast of the next series? I'm not sure how to use it in different situations.
That's all my ideas today. If I have another one, I'll send it to you!
Finally, I'd like to say thank you to you for all of your effort to make these fantastic podcasts as well as for your reading my comments.
All the best,
Rosie Phan
