thanks for your lesson! It was great opportunity to learn new words and new construction in grammar!

Tnx british council group
I am looking forward to new series.
When you release series 5?
Please give me a date?

Hello Ebi.mj,

We are working on series 5, but I'm afraid we don't know when it will be ready to release. If I knew, I would tell you, but there's still so much to do that no-one knows just yet!

We'll certainly advertise on our home page and in our newsletter once we know when it will be ready.

Thanks for your interest.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thank you
Dear great kirk
I want the best for you & your colleagues in the British Council.
I still looking forward to hear some news about new series.
Best regards.

I realy like to listen to these podcasts.
In my opinion, these type of podcasts are very educational. In addition, i fall into the habit of carolina and their friends. I hope you keep the podcasts and make new season of elementray podcasts with carolina and their friends.

Thank you.

Hello lovely people from British Council. I'am brazilian, and lived in london for 10 months in 2007 to learn English and lose my panic about the language, I'm quite deaf, and it's hard to understand British pronunciation. I studied English in many short times during my life, and never felt myself confidence to speak. In a ironic way I got marriied with a gentlemen english guy who live in my city. Now I have a English family and need to improve my skills.
I loved your way to teach, setting the text in exercises that repeat and repeat pronouns, verbs and vocabulary, amazing!
You;re very generous about learn people around the world for free. Thank you!
All the best

Nice !

Hi sir, I need a lot of idiom and phrase,one word of substitution,difficult word and opposite meaning of difficult word.where I get it.and Also want to know which time series five will declear. Why so much time taken by British council.British council have many Branch in different countries. and thousands number of students study in different British council does not face difficulty to collect different cultures, education, story about historical places, political idea and servicess etc. Please release series just like series 1.and only one series in one month and students does not wait for long time. Thank.

Hi ritesh46,

After a class with a teacher who can help you, I think a dictionary is probably the best resource for you. The Cambridge Dictionary is online, free and also has quite a lot of information on grammar, so I'd recommend you trying using it.

We appreciate you telling us how eager you are for the next series of Elementary Podcasts to be released. It takes quite a lot of work, and we have many other projects, but we also know that there are many people like you who are anxiously waiting for the next series. As soon as we have a good idea of when it may be released, we'll announce it, but I'm afraid for now I just can't say. This isn't because it's secret -- it's because we just don't know yet.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
