Hi littlemoon86,

That's right: darts night is a night that is for playing darts, and quiz night is a night when there is some kind of quiz game - generally, it's trivia or something similar.

people like alcohol more than water because its contain germs less than water i think its a wrong answer

Hello farahat91,
The comment refers to how things were in the past, not in the present!  Nowadays water in the UK is clean and safe but it wasn't always so, and in the past it could be quite dangerous so that even beer was safer!

I have a question ..
the landlord said: People come here from all walks of life.
what does that mean?

Hi There,
walks of life means people from all different types of jobs and different levels from society .
you could look up any word in the dictionary at the right corner.
Best wishes ,

people already know the getting worse in drinking alcohol, but they still treat. like this video, thank so much for your great job!:) 

Hi Adam,
              You guys are doing great job but i think we need some speaking practice as well.Its really enjoyable to watch all videos of words on the street.

Hi, the "word on the street" series is excellent. If there are other similar series, please let me know about it. Thanks a lot.

You send me on my account on the Facebook to give you the required information in order to set up a conversation course for me. I gave you the required survey information; however i didn't receive any information from you about the course.

Who are you talking to? LearnEnglish doesn't run any conversation courses, so we can't answer your question. If you want to ask the British Council in Egypt, then you can find out how to contact them here.
Best wishes,
