Hello Armand,
I'm afraid I don't know this station very well, but I just listened to it for a few minutes to see what it was like. If you can understand it, I think listening to any speech radio will be very helpful for your English. However, after you get comfortable with one channel or presenter, it might be a good idea to try listening to something else, to get used to a different style of speaking, different accents etc.
Best wishes,

Hope will get replies  from you soon.

Hello sinti!

That's an impossible question to answer without seeing the test! IELTS practice tests aren't all the same difficulty, so I recommend either asking your teacher or looking at the course book; they will usually give you an idea of the band.

Sorry I can't be more helpful!

Hello wanjia!
Sorry to hear you're having problems! Unfortunately, users in some countries do have difficulties seeing our videos, and they are not available for download. We do not have an answer for these Britain is Great videos at the moment.

However, we are trying a new solution. If you go to our recent Word on the Street video series - for example, Flathunting – underneath the main video you will see a link that says 'Can't see video? Click here!'. Please give it a try, and let us know how it works. That way, we can move more of our videos to the new system.
