hello.
I am very happy to know much useful information about York.I am from Egypt the country of the pharaohs and it is my pleasure to recognize all of these about English culture I will be grateful if you tell us about mixture of the English society.

Hello,
I really want to thank you 4 these extremely useful videos...I've been leaving in England since April 2016....I still keep watching them because Ash and Steve spoke clearly and the Rob's real posh accent ...I wish you could upload new series of word on the street.... Do you happen to organize meeting with viewers? I'd be glad if met my virtual friends.

Hello Peppe,

I'm glad you find the videos useful. We don't organise meetings, I'm afraid, but new videos may well be added to this series in the future. Watch this space!

In the meantime there are many other series - video and audio - on our listening skills page.

 

Best wishes,

Hi Sirs.
I have a question.
The Man in the video says: 'You won't be needing that'.
I undestand the meaning but I don't think to have never seen this grammar costruction before. I think.
Could you explain me this, please?

Hello VCha,

This is an unusual form, isn't it? It's has the same meaning as 'You're not going to need that' - a prediction based on present knowledge or evidence. It's quite an informal form used most often when someone with more knowledge is correcting another person's expectations or plans.

Hello everyone I'm glad to be here again andto share my thoughts. So if I have to choose whether I go, to the museum or shopping. I would prefer to go to visit the museum instead to go shopping. Because to do shopping you have all the time but to go in the museum you have to feel what you see and the good thing is most of the museums have a shop inside, so after you visit the museum you'll be able to do some shopping. But if you choose to do shopping you won't be able to see the museum. I have always wanted to see the museum of art from Britain.
Talking about the treasures, I have never searched for a treasure or worked on an archaeological dig but I would do it. Sometimes I thought, I wish I could maybe go somewhere to research for a treasure. When I was a kid I had a dream I have had a dream to go somewhere in an island and to discover somethings. Actually when I was a kid I used to watch cartoons, that's brings me back some nice memory when I used to searching for my childhood treasure. if I like to go to search a treasure yes it would be interesting too, to have a map to go to make a research and to discover some ancient tools that gets you closer and closer to the treasure but I don't think so finally I won't end it by find a treasure, to be honest.

I don't know too much about this city but, I would like to visit it and to walk across the city searching for something interesting and I'd rather go to a museum looking for masterpieces and really nice paintings. I'm faithful to museums and I must go there and see it!

I can't see the videos

Hello wunderkind,

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the videos. I have checked the page and the video is working correctly so I can only assume that it is a local problems. It may be a hardware issue, in which case accessing the site via a different device may solve it. Try accessing the site through a different laptop or desktop computer if you can. Alternatively, it may be a software compatibility issue so using a different browser may help, or it could be a security problem in which a firewall or similar blocks media elements.

I hope you can find a solution to the problem.
