Thank you for the comment. Im not professional for the English.
Anyway, just asked the question to not mess you.

Hello Teachers ,

here , in the end of the episode Amandeep says that ' the castle falls to the control of the Parliamentarians ' . Isn't it better to say ' falls under the control ' ?

Thank you ,

Best regards ,

Hello iliya_b,

'fall under the control' is indeed probably a bit more common than what Amandeep says, but 'to' can also be used with the same meaning.

Hello Faruque Hossain,

The videos here in Word on the Street are not available for download, and in any case are not intended for IELTS preparation - though of course you're welcome to use them however you'd like to.

If you're interested in preparing for the IELTS, I'd suggest you try our IELTS section, as well as TakeIELTS, where you can find resources designed specifically for the exam.

Best regards,

I love England, however I'm Egyptian.

It is fun to learn the history of England:)
I already knew that the queen doesn't participate in politics in England. however, I didn't know why and just now I realised it.

"the queen doesn't participate in politics in England" (by the way, is this right sentence?? Or could kindly you revise it for me?)
