Hello Abdooww,

I'm afraid our House Rules don't allow you to post personal information such as your email address. Who did you want to have your email address? I can get give it to an appropriate person, but I'm not sure whom you've been in touch with.

All the best,

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for participating! The best place to do send your comments is the webpage for the episode you've listened to. For example, if you've listened to Series 1 Episode 1, you can see what other people have written (and write your own comments) on that episode's webpage. Every episode has its own webpage and you can find all of them on our LearnEnglish podcasts page.

We are currently working on the next series (series 5) of the podcasts and we hope to hear more from you!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello! I love the British Council's content. I've listened to the Series 1 Podcast and just started Series 2... I'm deeply disappointed that Gordon is gone. My favourite parts are his jokes and Carolina's saga, but ever since she met Jamie, Gordon was the only thing 100% nice. Miss you, Gordon! (P.S. Ravi, I love you, but the jokes will never be the same without Gordon)

Dear Sir/Madam
First of all I should say thanks to you for your good program. So how can I have lesson texts in PDF or Word or any format? I think it is necessary for work on it.
