Hi are you going to produce new series of word on the street? these series have been very useful for me. do you want to produce them on other different topics?.thank you

I'm glad you found Word on the Street so useful. We are planning to make a new series. However, TV isn't quick or cheap to make, so don't expect it next week!

some one tells me what the difference between an amusement park and a theme park is? 
I looked in a dictionary and I searched the images on line.But still I dont know the difference. 

I'm very pleased to watch and listen current English spoken by English people at a normal speed. Thanks to you, I believe that my comprehension in spoken English will improve a lot. Thank you again.

I like entertainment parks, especially Disnaylands. There are lots of different merry-go-rounds where you get  exiting emotions and can relax laugh a lot. If you don't like any nose and you prefer quiet  places you can visit theme parks.  Where you can just walk and think about something.
I think this pair of young people have different preferences.   

Best of Luck to the Learn English team.

ı think we don't have to download this videos. we can see every time.

there are more videos on the site. only wacht it!

respect to labour...

Although I log in correctly and can see and hear the conversation, I´m not able to do the exercises. They appear in an odd configuration that doesn´t allow the execution. The trouble started with the LearnEnglish of April. Could you please help me to solve this problem?


I can see this problem and we are trying to solve it. Thanks for the information.

Best wishes,
