Hello there!
Sorry to hear you're having problems watching the video. Unfortunately, users in Iran do have trouble watching some of our videos.
We are trying a new solution, however. If you look at the page, you'll see a link that says 'Can't see video? Click here!' just under the main video. Please tell me if you can see that video. All of our recent videos, as well as some of our older videos are already available through this method, and we will be moving more videos to this system when we can. If you still can't see the video, let me know, and I'll try to help more.

As for download, unfortunately these videos are not currently available for download for copyright reasons.

Hope that helps,

Paris is a marvelous global city, I've been there 5 times, exploring the whole metropolitan area from La Défense to Versailles. You must be at these fabulous tourist attractions:

  • Montmartre (including Sacré-Coeur)
  • The Eiffel Tower
  • Île de la Cité (including Notre-Dame and Conciergerie)
  • Musée du Louvre
  • La Défense (including Grande Arche)
  • Arc de Triomphe
  • Moulin Rouge
  • Opéra Garnier
  • Tour Montparnasse
  • Hôtel de Ville
  • Place de l'Hôtel-de-Ville
  • Place de la Concorde
  • Palace of Versailles
  • Grand Palais

Shopping in Paris is gorgeous, the French cuisine is probably one of the best of the world and French is the language of love. Everyone should visit this city one time in their life.

Hello smithcameron -
I'm sorry, but the Word on the Streets videos are not available for download for legal reasons. You can watch them here as many times as you like, though!

If you want to download them so you can practice English offline or by using an mp3 player, some of our recordings can be downloaded. Try our Elementary Podcasts, for example.

Enjoy the rest of the site!

Bonjour, chacun. ( hi,everyone)

I went to Paris in 2010's August with my wife. Paris was so fascinating. Streets, apartmants, cafees, museums, metro, huge parks with big trees and the different musics (you always hear when you move) were very interesting. We can not forgive that five days and we want to go there again as soon as possible. I advise everyone to see Paris.  

Iam going to visit paris next December ! Incha'Allah ! 
I think i'ts gonna be fabulous !! 

Hi there,I really facinated this video. Paris is a fabulous city which I'd like to come in the future. :")...
Cheers :-*

I have never been to Paris.It's a quite good city,.I have heard a lot about Eiffel Tower.I don't know much about French dishes.I like to speak French,it's a good language.

I am aware of such places of interest in Paris as Louvre, Tour Eiffel, Moulin Rouge, Grand opera, Orsay, Notre Dame de Paris, Mon-Martr. I have eaten French cuisine in Nice also in a Russian restaurant in Moscow Jan- Jak. I have tasted a lot of French dishes, for example croissons, various fish dishes, calamari, mussel, oyster, cochlea, cheeses, salads, soups. From all soups I liked most Norman soup.
With respect,
