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.

Sure...!!!

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.

My brother is a sister. is it right sentence?

Hi nose,

It's grammatically correct, but I don't understand this sentence, because brother generally refers only to males and sister only to females. brothers can be used to refer to both men and women, but without the context that would make this clear, this sentence is confusing.

thank you for replying me..
'My brother is a sister.' That means my brother is a head of nurse in the hospital....
nothing to confuse at all

Hello nose_picker,

I see what you mean now! 'Sister' used to be used to refer to nurses in English as the profession was dominated by women and, in the past, women belonging to religious orders (the term 'sister' originally was used to refer to nuns). The equivalent term for male nurses was 'charge nurse' or 'ward manager'. However, with the growing number of male nurses today hospitals no longer use the term 'sister' (see here, for example).
