I loved these videos. I didn't know York. I expect to visit it next year.

Amandeep is always the cutest woman of the British Council :) excellent work!

Tourists are fascinated by the beauty of our country. Everybody knows about such places of interest as Red Square, the Kremlin, and the National Historical Museum, St Basil's Cathedral, the Bolshoy theater, others. A hundred years ago Russia was the fastest developed country in the world, besides it exported bread to Europe and art was on the highest level, also plenty museums were established.

Hello. I seem to be the first listener from Siberia!
I want to tell you a story about famous Siberian artist Vasily Surikov, he lived in the city of Krasnoyarsk in 19's century. When he was a little boy he always draw on all of surfaces in his house. When he grew up he went from Siberia to Moscow for studying there, and I was very surprised when I to find out that he had to travel some 5000 km on sleighs in winter taiga. I tell you it’s awful hard. Nowadays I can just buy the plane ticket and after 5 hours I'll be in Moscow.

this video is very useful to show out a bit of Britain's history. I'm really enjoyed with this good work.
Thank you a lot for your efforts ...

what attract tourist to come and visit my country is our amazing beaches that have white sand and clear and calm water.  Nowadays, more and more people visit these great beaches and even turn then to an sporting area like banana boat riding race, surfing event, and even simple motor boat riding. Tourist enjoy watching the night events at the sea shore where music groups perform and entertain them while having a sip of their beer. The common comment they leave to us was that, they like our hospitality and the friendship we are showing to them, in return we respect and made sure that their stay is a memorable one that when they go back to their own country they will spread the story of how great was their vacation in my country.
I can compare that life nowadays is much easier that hundred of years ago. With the advancement of technology we have electricity that make cell phone, computer, internet, cars, planes, television which brings people closes regardless of how far they are.
