Transport and Travel Scene 1


Stephen's friend comes to London and Ashlie and Stephen show him around.

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.


Before you watch

Think about the following questions:

  • What do you do if you go on a ‘tour of the city’?
  • What kind of things do you like to do when you visit a place on holiday?

Watch Stephen and Ashlie welcome their friend Jazz to London.



These videos are so helpful, I just wish we could download the archives for both the videos and the exercises, just as we can inother areas of the website.

I heard some people speaking like "I did tell him" and "I do take care of...". Although it is possible to say simply like "I told him..." or "I take care of ...". I am just confused why Did and Do are added in the former sentences and are these sentences with "Do" and "Did" are correct? What about sentences without these (i.e. Do/Did)?


Hello Nathan M,

We can use the auxiliary in affirmative sentences to add emphasis, especially when someone does not believe what we are saying or contradicts it:

I went to the shop.

You did not!

I did go to shop, honestly!

Unfortunately I can't download the videos from word on the street

Hello miloodf,

I'm afraid that the Word on the Street videos are not available for download due to copyright restrictions. If you have a mobile device, I'd suggest you take a look at our Apps page, where you can view some videos by using the GREAT Videos and LearnEnglish Audio and Video apps.

All the best,

hello sir.
unfortunately i am not finding any video here on this page... how can i get it?

Hello Mussawar,

I'd recommend you download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash player – this solves most video problems. If you have a device that is incompatible with Flash (e.g. an iPhone), however, you may have to view this page using a different device.

Dear sir,
Thanks for your useful lessons, and I'd like to ask you a question: What is the difference between 'meet' and 'see'? A foreigner said "Nice to see you!" when she and I have known already, but she said to my friend who haven't met before "Nice to meet you".

Hello buianh,

We use 'meet' the first time we meet someone and 'see' (or 'talk to') after that.

Best wishes,
