Dear Abdullah,

I understand your situation and we will try to provide a download button as soon as possible. Right now we are very busy with the 'Word on the Street' series and preparing the new series of Elementary Podcasts, but I will work on downloading videos as soon as I can.

Making and receiving a compliment it's easy when you mean it.

 I am from Albania and I think when you learn English you create new opportunities to yourself  in every direction.And this site is the best I have ever know to learn English.:)))

Man i have been trying all my life :) its very hard to achieve a real british accent unless you live with them. I love british accent. whether that be Northern dialects, middle lands or even southern ones....im lovin' it! i however prefer the local dialects over RP or queen's or king's or oxford or standard wat so ever accent.

Do you want something??? ahahah...It's the same thing that I would think if I met someone who makes me too many compliments! I don't find really easy to pay someone a compliment, especially if I don't know well the person who I'm talking to, because I'd think that he could be embarassed...and me too, I would be really embarassed!

I liked this video.I think is very easy to pay someone a compliment if you really want.Everyone has good parts.I think this lesson is very useful.I've learned new vocabulary words and I'm very glad:D

i adore the accent the guy speaks,very funny conversation.
I think it is not difficult to pay a compliment unless you are lazy to find someone's  merit .if you have a positive and sincere thought of other people,you can make the compliment naturally.But if you have to pay a compliment to someone who doesn"t have  good manner and moral,it will be a loath thing ,and also the word you say will be false.it is not a good experience.
And for me,if i am flatter,i can judge the if the comliment is ture, i will feel sweet if someone i care about pay a compliment to you.
after all,every confident person need and like compliment.
