Excellent website!

I'm going to suggest it to all my friends.

can i download the audio?

Hi puffineguin,

I'm afraid that our videos, including their audio tracks, are not available for download due to them being under copyright. The Elementary Podcasts and Big City Small World, as well as many articles in the Magazine, do have downloadable audio.

good day.

this is the first time I’m texting to you, how can I know that the synonym I’m using is the suitable one?

Hello Salim1,

I'm not sure that I understand your question.  Are you asking in general or are you asking about one of the exercises on this page?

Best wishes,

I came here for my bad experience in LA where I did a drive through at Carl Jr for a burger, the waitress have a strong south american accent. So i keep on missing, is there any other way to ask someone to repeat?

Hi kevin2367,

"Can you please repeat that?", "I'm sorry, I didn't understand you" or "Come again?" (this last one is rather informal) are other ways to ask for someone to repeat something. Better luck next time!
