Hello Aaron,

In British English, 'practise' is the spelling of the verb, while 'practice' is the spelling of the noun.  In American English, 'practice' is used for both.

Best wishes,

Hi, Peter, i just wanna ask, when will i use the word though

Hello Aaron,

We use 'though' to show contrast.  You can find information on how it is used on this page and on this page, as well as some exercises to practise a range of similar linking devices.

Best wishes,

excuse me i have a question, i don't understand the expression to be learning, what does mean? 

Hello rosario70,

The phrase 'to be learning' is a continuous infinitive form.  The form is used after certain verbs - perhaps you can provide the full context in which you saw the phrase and then we'll be happy to clarify it for you.

Best wishes,

Hello pyae phyo kyaw,

It's great to hear that we're helping you! We're not the BBC, however - the British Council is a different organisation!

where is the script for this video

Hello John!
 
These language focus clips are like mini lessons, not listening exercises, so they don't have transcripts. If you understand what Rob is teaching and can do the exercises – then that's all you need! It's not comprehension, but language work. If you still find them a bit difficult, try some thing a little easier - like our Elementary Podcast series.

Good luck!

Hello everyone,
I found this video very usefull,it was very clear on how to be more confident with the foreign language you're learning and also made a clear explanation on the difference between "do" and "make",how and when we have to use them.
I got it very well....I hope :)
