Hello Peter,
thanks for the quick answer. I can understand very well your argument that for copyright reasons British Council cannot make such offers in some cases. However, I wonder if it is against current laws to isolate the soundtrack for me privately and save it for my training purposes. There are different programmes for this. This also applies to the possibility to save the film clips on my computer. Fortunately, the British Council offers a lot of material where a lot of learning material can be downloaded officially.
Thank you very much indeed!
Bernd

Hello Bernd,

I can check for you but it's not a question of copyright law but rather the terms of cooperation between the British Council and its partners. Where we can make material available, we do so, but other institutions have their own policies and requirements.

Thanks for your effort, Peter! I understand that there are two different things we're talking about. On the one hand, there is the situation of British Council and its partners, on the other hand, there are my thoughts about using the material for me and using suitable software. If you could find out anything else, I would be grateful! All the best.
Bernd

Hello,
my question is whether it is allowed - just for my private learning process - to use the audio track of the video separately? That would be a big help!
Thank you
Bernd

Hello Bernd,

I'm afraid we can't make the audio available offline. Some of our content is created in collaboration with other institutions such as the BBC and we are governed by various regulations as far as what we can make available for download goes.

20 years ago, I had an appointment with my girlfriend in Nha Trang City. But on the street I had been get a big traffic jam and I was late to see her. At that time mobile phone still not used on the world and she very angry and but still waited for me. Now she is my wife.

We don't go anywhere without mobile phones. It makes to find someone easy.

If you lose in public place without phone, you should ask staff to put out imformation of the people you are looking for

Yes, I have several times I could not see my friends at the waiting spots, and because it was when there were no mobile phone available, I just had to go about or stand at the point patiently until the friend shows up. In the end, I had to go back home sadly since I was not able to see her/him after two hours of searching...

My husband and I can hardly ever meet in public places. It has been like that since our first date and we've been together for twenty-five years now. We just do not separate when we go out together or we agree on a meeting point. Cell phones help us a lot.
