Improve your English listening skills

In LearnEnglish Audio & Video, you'll find the best podcasts and videos offered on the LearnEnglish website on topics such as UK food and culture, everyday life and famous stories and poems. Extra features such as a moving audioscript and pitch control have been added  in the app to help with listening and understanding the podcasts.

Audioscript, glossary and pitch control help you take control of your learning

Click any part of the audioscript to jump to that section or listen again. If you're finding the audio too fast, slow it down using the pitch control (iOS only). If you don't know a word, use the built-in glossary to see the definition. Test how much of the episode you've understood by answering the comprehension exercises.

Cool media player functions

Listen to the podcasts and watch the videos and read the highlighted audioscript or enter full screen video mode in landscape orientation. Switch easily between comprehension questions, the tapescript and glossary.

Hi, can anybody solve this problem? In passive voice what will be "Do you know how to cook rice?"

To my mind the best variant for your question is "Do you know how rice is cooked?"

Hi debasish2k1,
Questions beginning 'Do you know...', when we transform them into passive voice, become 'Is it known (by you)...'.  In this case, the 'it' is 'how to cook rice' and so we end up with:
'Is how to cook rice known [by you]?'
So, grammatically speaking, that is the answer. However, it's a very unnatural sentence and one that I can't imagine anyone ever using!
