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.



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,
