Hello emma45,

You can find this on iTunes and also on this site - all episodes are available here on LearnEnglish, and the audio files can be downloaded. If you go to the Big City Small World page you can use the links on the right to find episodes from Series 1.

hello everyone,
I tried to find the exact use of keen word but,could find exactly. Could any body tell me the use of this word.

Hello Mandeep,

I'm sure you can find 'keen' in the dictionary. It can mean different things depending on the context – look at the examples and I expect you can figure it out. If not, it's important to post the context you saw it in.

All the best,

Hello! Please tell me if I say "I will see" is correct? or "I shall see" is correct?

Hello livira,

Both are correct, but 'shall' is rarely used in modern English, and 'will' is much more common.
