Hi thanks for yours interesting job. I would like to know if there are transcriptions for lessons Thanks, Melania

Hi Melania,
Thanks for your kind words - it's always great to know that people appreciate our work.
There are transcripts for most of the lessons in Word on the Street, but unfortunately not all of them - for example, see Animals Scene 1 and Shakespeare Scene 1.
There are also transcripts for many other sections of LearnEnglish, for example the Magazine, Elementary Podcasts and Big City Small World.
Best wishes,

Hi Paula,

Thank you for your great job. In the video they say "50 quid" why not "50 quids"?

Hello FarzadTabrizi,

Thank you for your kind words and I’m glad you like LearnEnglish. ‘Quid’ (which is a very informal way of saying ‘pound’) is an example of a noun with an irregular plural form: like ‘fish’, ‘sheep’ and ‘deer’, the plural form is the same as the singular form.

For more information on nouns and plural forms, including some irregular plural forms, take a look here.

Best wishes,

Thank you very much for fantastic lesson, it's so useful in everyday life. Specially when someone lend you some money. Can you lend me fifty quid? Fifty quid eh? Don't worry you will get it one day...yes I like that!
