Hello GabyMares,

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish are not available for download for legal and technical reasons. There used to be a link to download the activities in pdf form, but not the videos. It's unfortunate that you have no internet connection available for your lessons, but I'm afraid we can't help you in this way.

Best wishes,

I think Britain´s countryside is very beautiful but also I think that all Mexico is very pretty and warm, not only because of its climate but for its people.

My idea of a lovely countryside is one nestled in a quiet bay area with mountains on the other side. On the slow slopes, there are white houses with colorful roofs and gardens. The houses are in different shapes and sizes. The small cozy cottages and the grand mansion are rather in harmony, coexisting to exhibit the character of the land they are both in. A sunny late afternoon, I sit on top of a stone wall, gentle breeze scatters fragrance bursting from nearby roses. Waves wash the coast, wind shuffles the forest. They are all eager to tell me their stories. And, I, am the most lucky in the world.

I'd like to visit all those places.

I'd rather live in the countryside.

there are no a doubts about how much stunning views and landscapes in GREAT BRATIN . but the one million dollar question or should i say pound is how some one can get there . since almost a year i fighting over 6.5 in to ielts to immigrate to canada which is too fat from uk and never succeed yet ,however. i am not too far i got 6 at my last test ,i will submit to ielts test again in next december hopfully i will pass this time

Hello zeyad147,

Have you seen TakeIELTS? There's useful information as well as some free practice materials there.

thank you sir for your concern , yes i have seen that and i have more than 30 books related to ilets test with audio Cambridge university publications ,however, i am working on this despite my spare time is short , in my first test i got what i need in some skills such as speaking , i got 6.5 , in my last test i got 4.5 , i dont complain but the tutor who examined me was quite different , her voice wasnt so clear ,in addition , she was talking in speed of light ,in oppositely , my first examiner was extremely cheerful .however, i cant complain i cant change the score and i am quite sure all British council tutors are more than qualified , i just need to spite this out my mouth because i was extremely upset the way she was talking to me ,,to sum up ,,i adore English language for many reasons ,now i have chance to be more proficient for very good reason ,thank you for your patients

British landscapes seem to be wonderful. It takes me fancy to come and visit Great Britain.

Hi British Council Team,

I really really enjoyed the Great Video series but the trouble is that I can't download any of it. Is there any way that I can download the video?

Thank you so much for your help.

Hi Gardenia Zeng,

I'm afraid that the videos on LearnEnglish cannot be downloaded for both technical and legal reasons. You can, however, watch them as many times as you like on LearnEnglish entirely free of charge.
