Hello Kirk, thank you for the useful explanation. I will keep go on for the questions, though they are a bit difficult for me. I need practice for listening skills!!!

I learnt at school about Lake District, but I have never had the chance to visit it. It is amazing how many tourists come here, I wasn't aware of this. This way of learning about a country through watching films is really great.

I enjoyed seeing this video of (from my opinion ) a visit to Lake Windermere .I realized that how beautiful is Great Britain .I love a Countryside rich in green hills , flowers,birds ,and fresh ocean breath .All places I have seen in the video interested me .For me Countrysides are best places to live .

I like so munch the farm. But also I believe that the city is important for personal development. The type of farm that like for me is the landscape with varied the mountains and river for capture, for example, one photography and have one wonderful experience. About richard and your places, i liked "the Windermere lake" because i think that is a place very quiet, beautiful, the climate varied and nice people. Thanks

This landscape is very beautiful. There are big mountains, the climate is variaded and the zone is very quiet for walk

I'm not able to see any of the videos of the "Britain is Great" series, why?

Thank you


I can't really say. If this is the only page which is causing you problems then it's a very odd situation and must be related to some setting you have locally. If many other videos on the site are not loading then it may be a compatibility issue, especially if you are using a mobile device such as a phone or tablet. I suggest you try accessing the site with a different device - a laptop or desktop computer - to see if this helps.
