Could you explain about caught up
I don’t understand
Thank you

Hello Reihaneh,

In the context of the text 'caught up' means to be really absorbed or fascinated by something. Usually we say 'caught up in'. For example:

I was really caught up in the conversation and completely forgot that I was supposed to meet my friend!

how can I download the videoes?

Hi hnn1990,

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish are not available for download for legal and technical reasons. The audio files from many of our listening pages can be downloaded, however.
