Dear LearnEnglish Team,
I am delighted that I've finished watching the videos, completed the exercises and did leave my comments in these series of Britain is Great, however; I would like to know about Jobs, is working in Great Britain Great? What is the popular or in demand jobs there?
Thank you very much, I've learned a lot and improved myself. My biggest challenge would be self-confidence.
Again, thank you and more power!

Hello caryle,

That's a very open question and isn't really an area which we here at LearnEnglish deal with, I'm afraid. There are many sources on the internet where you can find information about working the UK, including government sites such as this one.

Best wishes,

Oh.. pardon me Peter I didn't realize that, I just thought. Anyway, thank you so much for helping.

Absolutely, our country participated in the Olympics since summer 1928-proud to say that we had won medals. It would be an honour to represent my country in the Olympics or Paralympics. I would like to try Figure Skating, it’s not unusual but it’s a great sport.

Dear LearnEnglish Team,
Richard said "Snug! This is the Official Test Centre, next to the sailing academy" and "Now, where did I put my cricket bat?" May I know the meaning of Snug and Cricket bat?
Thank you and more power!

Hi Peter,
Thanks a lot. Right, I need to see at the dictionary on the right side of the page. Maybe i was stupefied. :(

Thank you so much for doing this Kirk. Unfortunately, I can only see the Pdf transcripts not the activities. Any suggestions?

Thank you again

Hi,
We've only made the Britain is Great transcripts available as PDFs, not the support packs. We're a small team with a very long to-do list! We will get onto it as soon as we can.
Best wishes,
Adam
