Hello yasmeenalhamoud,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! The best place to start is our Help page, where you can find advice on how to use the site to improve. After that, I'd recommend you take some time to explore the site using the menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.). Then just begin on a page that looks interesting. If you don't know where to begin, I'd suggest Elementary Podcasts Series 4.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hi Kirk,

Why Android App of Big City Small World gone? It really help us.


Hello agus,

The best way to enquire about this would be to ask the question on one of our Apps pages – probably the LearnEnglish Audio and Video page would be best. Then our mobile team will see your question and can answer it for you there.

Hi Peter,

Year a go I visited this page and found series 4 complete from episode 1 to 12. Why now they are disappear?
Lucky me, I've downloaded episode 1 to 11, but missing episode 12. No transcripts at all.

Hello agus,

As far as I know, we have not published series 4 here on LearnEnglish. We do plan to release it in the future, but I'm afraid we just don't know yet when that will be.


Best wishes,
