Hi Peter M

could you explain what does Stephen's mean when he said "I’ve been loads of times"?

Thank you

Hello Byxinh,

'I've been' means 'I've traveled to' and 'loads of times' means 'many times'. You can find a definition and example of 'loads of' in the dictionary – just look it up in the search box on the right side of this page.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

please upload the vedeios with low details to people who don't have speed internet like me

Hello Alaa Hessein,

I'm sorry to hear you're having some troubles with the video. We'll make a note of your suggestion for next time we edit these pages. In the meantime, I suggest you focus on our audio materials, which do not place such demands on your connection and which can be downloaded and listened to offline. You might try our Elementary Podcasts series, or our audio soap opera, Big City Small World.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

I am a volunteer teacher in India. This video is brilliant to show both cultures. I would like to use at St Mary's school next monday May 9th - kids are coming from slums. Can It be downloaded and saved in my computer? No internet at school of course. Thank you!

Hi guys from Br. council, I was pleading you for help several times, bec. I´m not able to watch the videos any more. I wrote to you yesterday, but nobody seemed to notice my plea. I can´t work with your material any more, and I give several courses. I have to rearrange everything or to find a new website, but this seems to be impossible. I tried your suggestions about reloading Adobe Fl. Pl. and trying another browser, but nothing seems to help. What am I supposed to do now with all my English classes??? Once again my information to you: I use Firefox and tried with Internet Browser. Before you rearranged, I was working with Br. Council without any problems for five years.
