Yes, I think it is a good idea for celebrities to do work for charity because these people have a lot of money and fans, they can be a very good influence for other people.

I would like to meet Audrey Hepburn, because she was sincere, modest and kind, diespite being very popular. she was beautiful, famous and talanted actress.my favourite film with her is "Roman Holidays". Also she was the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. She traveled in Turkey, Africa, South America , to the most poor areas, with the delivery of products and medicines.i'd like to talk with her about her life and of course about her charity work.

I think that celebrities should do charity works. They have a lot of money so it will be right if they help the poor people.Some celebrities do this only for publicity. But their fans want to be like their idols, so they follow their example and do charity work. I see nothing wrong with that.

Hi teacher! Hi everyone!

could anyone tell me how to download the .mp3/4 documents, e.g. Series 01 episode 01 for offline learning, please?
Many thanks for your kind help!

Best,

Hello QQ

If you right-click or hold and press on the audio player, you should see an option to 'Save Audio As' or something similar. On phones and tablets it can be a little tricky, so I would suggest using a computer if possible; otherwise, some users have told me that Firefox is the easiest browser to download files in.

Hope this helps!

All the best

Many thanks, Kirk! I got and enjoyed them!

It's a good thing to make celebrities, and it's interesting topic.

Hi
I listened to this podcast, it is very good and useful for me, I learned several different phrases and vocabularies. I like that especially session 7. The joke is very funny.

Hello. These postcards very beneficial for learning English.

I want to meet Jennifer Lawrence because she is so pretty and her eyes ara very attractive .she plays her roles very natural and I think she loves her job.
In my opinion most of the Hollywood actor and actress are well off to help poor people and it is so good for them to do work for charity,if I have a good income I will help too.
