Is it possible to download this video?

Hello Frederic855,

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish are not available for download for legal and technical reasons. On our audio-only pages we make the audio available as an mp3 file, but the videos are not accessible offline.

I have took more then three times to listening and only three question answer is correct. It's very useful to learning English. Please keep more video and tasks.

hi. sorry but i didn't undrstand the last 3 expressions. what are for?

Hello khammal92,

I assume you mean these expressions:


give someone the axe
give someone their cards
give someone the boot


As the page says, these are 'less formal, but more colourful ways of saying the same thing' - i.e. a person being dismissed from their job.


Best wishes,

Many thanks
