i will go to the most important places .

Hello everybody
I would like to ask what shall i do to prove my english to be beter 
thanks .

Hi everyone! I think that the best way for tourists to familiarize with a place is to walk to its markets, bazaars, restaurants and squares on your own. Otherwise you have a risk to be just a typical tourist who will be fed with popular but not the most characteristic and sincere flavor of a place. It's great when you have friends like Ashlie and Stephen who can organize an authentic tour for you, who knows all the best places in a city like the back of their hands, and who can introduce you to a real place, not that city which is seen only by tourists.

Thanks for the valuable video; this could motivate my students to learn more English. 



Thanks for this lovely tour guide of London. Most of my students are going on holiday at the end of the month, so this is a great lead-in to get learners talking about their holiday plans, which is probably the time of the year many of us look forward to☺ Thank you!
