snowdon is really amazing place, I wish i could go there one time and have a complete rest for a couple of days.

What is the meaning of "it’s a shame about the view though" in 02:05 minutes of the video? Is it because of low visibility caused by fog?

Hello bchehrenegar,
The meaning in this context is 'it's a pity the view isn't better' and you're absolutely right, it's a comment about the fog.  Well done!

Hello. Snowdon is really beautiful place . I think many people visit Snowdon every year.

 hi .Im need a video on Language!
Did you help me?

Is it possible to put the transcript for the language focuse parts? I have some problems with their pronunciations.

you can open two windows : one this the video , the other with the transcript' text!
for example where you are on the video rightclick on "transcript" and click on "open in new video" , in the new window click on transcript , resize the two windows until they share the screen!

Hello Hadi,
The language focus parts are like mini-lessons. You just need to understand the general message of what the presenters are saying, not every word.
If there's a specific sentence you are having problems with, you can ask in the comments.

It is really tough place :)) p.s. Stephen. Please, explain me why Stephen called Snowdon mountain tough. Due to hard road for cycling or just stony places. May be he was tired because sad this about Snowdon ?

I did not know anything about mountains in Great Britain. I wondered when knew that the highest mountain there is about 1300 meters tall :) There are mountains in height 4500 meters in Azerbaijan but unfortunatly we have not the train to ride up to the top :))

Hello politolog!
 
Glad you liked the video - and yes, our mountains are pretty small, really! When Stephen says 'tough', he means it's difficult. If you have trouble with a word, don't forget we have an online dictionary box - just search for the word there for help.
