I live in Pamplona and the place I recomend to go is the Agueda Gallardo Park. It is a traditional and emblematic place of the town. In this place you can see as kids as adults enjoying the familiar atmosphere. If you visit this park you can notice people playing everywhere, throwing frisbees, skating and dancing. There's a place for the cultural issues like artist exhibiting their paints, handicrafts and music. I totally recommend it, in addition you can look the architectonic design of the central plaza, half modern and a half colonial style.

I wolud like to know Hugh Jackman, he is one of my favorite actors and as a person he reveals to be kind and decent. I like this man because of his personality and talent. I think everyone can remember Wolverine. I mean for me this is the main role of his career. Wolverine has been one of the important character of the X-men saga in comics and modern movies. He represents a mutant that has the power of restore tissues, auto heal and can take out of his knuckles a pair of adamantium blades. Last year Hugh came to my country but unfortunately I couldn't travel to the city he went. Maybe in another opportunity I can meet him.

I want to talk about my job, I work in a company whose call center operation, I am supervisor of operations and have my dependents. I like to teach people that I am there, give them my knowledge. I think that people do their job well when you teach and help with things that are difficult.
On the other hand I like to read, study hard on current topics that help me in my work and professional development. For now I'm interested in learning how to properly handle the English language sometimes seems to me difficult, but I'm learning.

I really like this page it´s agreat idea to learn good english and get more vocabulary havin fun.

Thank you for this great help to improve my English.

Hello my riends, first thank you for this great English course. In the first part of this episode Tess says "He comes from Manchester. He's 23. Oh ... are not you?", I wonder as how "aren't you" is used with other pronouns. Thank You.

Hello vitovb,

Actually, 'are not you?' is not used - only 'aren't you?' or 'are you not?'. You can find an explanation of this on our question tags page, where you'll see that it is indeed possible to use this kind of form with other subjects, though a different verb form (e.g. 'isn't he'?) may be necessary.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

This is a great web page, because have a lot of excercises and games that improves our english skills, its really helpful for people like me that need more practice to learn about the differents fields of english

I really liked this page because it helped me to improve my listening since i can listen the Episodio as many times as necessary to answer all the questions and it website has a lot of useful things.

This page is too interesting and fantastic, because help you to learn more about topics like celebrities, places, sports, etc. but it all has English as a language, and I really liked to listen these conversation, it is very nice.
