Hello Genvieve,

I'm afraid that most of our videos are not available for download. We do have, however, a lot of downloadable audio content, e.g. Elementary Podcasts and Big City Small World as well as some apps that you can install on your phone.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I like this videos.

Very good.

yes good
do you want practice English :)

hi sir, in the sentence " we are looking forward to showing around you" , isn't false for " to + showing" but grammatically " to + verb infinite" . what happened in that? can you explain for me, please sir?

Exactly, look foward to + Ving will be right.

Hello MGBarry,

In this sentence 'to' is a preposition, not part of the infinitive. Prepositions are followed by objects, and the object here is a gerund. You can replace the gerund with a noun:

We're looking forward to dinner.

We're looking forward to our holidays.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

Hello marwa,

I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thanks very much for telling us about this. Would you mind telling us what device and browser you're using (and if you know how to find it, what version of the browser it is)? We're working to fix this, but in the meantime you might be able to solve this problem by changing browsers or devices temporarily.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
