I absolutely love these videos. I wish I would have had the opportunity to watch them 8 years ago (the first time I went to England). Now, as a non-native English teacher, I'm glad to have these wonderful resources online.
Congrats to all the team who makes this possible!

That's  really amasing! I have never heard such an explanation of Present Perfect Tense. Thank you.

 Thank you for telling us (present perfect) !!!

Thanks for your teaching with video.I have never learnt before.

They are great but unfortunately they can not be downloaded. If anyone knows any good way in order to download these videos please tell me. I need them for my mother and also myself.

I'm afraid we don't have copyright permission to make these videos available for downloading. However, since you are in Iran, you should be able to watch the show on BBC Persian Television instead.

hey Adam...
please I need your help ,,,I don't know how to use this website correctly :(, 4example: if I want to ask about something or to comment on ,how I can do that ???
I don't KNOW if it is  right to post this comment here !!! :))  but it is the only place that I found  :)

Yes, you can comment here. At the moment, we don't have a central place for questions, but it's something I'm working on.

Hello Adam JK. Thanks for giving the BBC Persial Telelision links. I have been trying to watch it but no way, every time I failed to see anyting. Any solutions for this?

Hello Rana,
Your profile says that you are in Albania, but my links to BBC Persian were aimed at a user from Iran. BBC Persian does not (as far as I know) broadcast in Albania.
If you want to watch the videos, you should be able to see them on this website. If you want to watch them on TV, then contact the TV stations in Albania and ask them to show 'Word on the Street'. I know that the BBC is keen to work with broadcasters around the world to show it in many countries.
Best wishes,
