I liked the video. Thanks.

Hi Kirk
Is is alright to use both American and British English at the same time?

Hello ishrat Bashir,

That really depends on the context and what your purpose is. In any case, the differences are mostly minor so often it's not even an issue.

All the best,

alright, find it.

It's great to be here. I got the idea of the video but I had some difficulty in some words.
Can't I find the subtitle for this video ???

hello sir,
Great video to improve our English. I have a problem with listening and spoken English. I have a question....
what is meaning of "I er" in this video

Hello Tanzeel Ur Rehman,

I'm glad you enjoyed the video! 'er' is the sound that native speakers make when they are thinking about what to say next -- you can see some more examples in the Cambridge Dictionary entry for 'er'.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

good video...thanks a lot

Could somebody recommend me radio news to British English, please?

Hello jannis,

A good source for British radio is the BBC ( There are many stations available with Radio 4 and Radio 5 having less music and more discussion. Many programmes are archived, so you can listen to them whenever you like. You can also subscribe to many podcasts on your phone or computer, if your wish.


Best wishes,
