Join Joe to find out why the British celebrate people trying to blow up Parliament! 



In Italy people usually set off fireworks especially on commemorative dates, e.g. on patron saint's festivals.
No, I haven't.

On their special days like weddings,birthdays etc.

No,I haven't

Well, I have learned a new one again about the tradition.

Hallo, could you explain me why ,, come UP and meet UP with my friends..,, Can I just say ,,come and meet with my friends,,?

Hello Jellena1983,

Both 'come up' and 'meet up' are phrasal verbs. Both can be found in our dictionary - see the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box on the right - and you can find out more about phrasal verbs in general on our phrasal verbs page.

Hi every body
Word on the street is the great program for improving your listening. I have finished listening all for two times in three months. It's hard to understand for the first time but it's better for the second time. I will try the third time even though more than fourth time. I believe that I will understand more after fifth time listening.

Hi Huu Thanh,

Thanks for your feedback and for sharing this great advice with everyone! It's certainly true that you can learn much more from these videos by listening to them multiple times, and even more by reading the transcripts out loud and imitating the pronunciation.

Hello samsgyin,

I'm afraid that our videos are not available for download due to copyright.
