well i couldent watch it for the 2nd time in your web. Im using slow internet. I realy wanted to do tasks. unfortunatly i coudnt.

i like this video

I've a very weird feeling with amusement parks and other things like that. I like to see it very far from, especially during the evening, when the sky light become dark and the multicolor lights take its place. However, when I was child I often went to the amusement park and I liked to try the "horror house". 
I like very much to go to the beach, since I live in a seaside town.  I know that sea is right for any kind of human mood. It's so friendly when you're upset and even if it's in a stormy situation you can see how charming it is and how it may be able to get some of yours deep thought out relaxes me so much!!! 

it's very good

Hi Adam,
Is there any possibility to download the videos? If yes, please let me know how to perform it.
Kind regards

Hi Mohsen,
I'm sorry, but with this series of videos we don't have copyright permission to make them downloadable.

Hi Adam,
In this video Punter at the amusement park says: "It WERE crazy!" What is the reason for using WERE with IT. Is it related to informal speech or something else?

Hi Mansour,
Well done for spotting this! In the north of England, some dialects use 'were' as the past tense of 'to be' instead of the more standard 'was'' used in most Englishes.
Don't worry - it's not very common and no one there will expect you to use a regional dialect if you visit!
