Hello Peter M!
Somebody mixed up tabs on the main page BCSW. And now actually "Meet to cast" is Series 2, "Series 1" is Series 3, "Series 3" is Meet to cast, and even there is "Series 4", that in fact, Series1. Maybe Harry did it, because was so excited about married to Bindyu (joke) .

Hello krig,

Thanks for letting us know about this. I've checked it and the links appear to be working correctly, so perhaps this was a temporary issue. Please let us know if the problem reappears.

 

Best wishes,

You ve made mistake...series 4 big city ..episode 10 isn't ok...it is lession from elementary..
Please corect

Hello mirjanas,

As far as I know, series 4 of Big City Small World has not been published here on LearnEnglish. Could you please explain the error that you've found in more detail? We'd certainly like to fix it, but since there's no Series 4 Episode 10 page here on LearnEnglish, I'm not sure what you're referring to.

Best wishes,

Hi ! I am glad to use this site it is really fantastic and helpufull by its fun methods of teaching english.iI would like to share with you my problem which is my unability of understinding native speakers eventhough i have got rich a vocabulary in english and i feel blocked in communication too.please could you give toi some advices to overcome these problems because i really get angry with this and tank you so much

Hi rawane,

It can be difficult to understand native speakers because of the speed with which they speak and the kind of language they use, including non-standard or slang. The only way to improve is to practise, I'm afraid, so using DVDs or audio recordings and listening with the transcript is the best thing to do, I would say.

You can find a lot of tips on improving listening (and other) skills on our Help page too.

Best wishes,

Peter

Ple help me i can't download audio .

Hello Ngwe Yu,

If you're using a computer, you should click on the words 'Download audio 4.0 MB (right click & save)' with the button on the right side of your mouse. You should then see several options – choose the one that saves it to your computer. With many other devices, you have to hold your finger on top of those same words until you see an option to save it.

Best wishes,
