Dear LearnEnglish Team,
Hello and thanks a lot for such wonderful videos. The 'Language Focus' part is really very very helpful. It would be great if we could download these videos too or only share them on FB. Do u have any future plans to make these videos available for DL or sharing? Anyway, keep posting them regularly, 'coz we are always eagerly waiting, and keep the good work up.

Hello darshan sharma, and thanks for the kind words!
I'm glad you think the videos are good, but I'm sorry to say we won't be making the Word on the Street videos available for download. This for copyright and technical reasons. We are looking at ways of letting you download some of the other videos, and you can already download some audio clips, so keep checking the site - and remember there's a facebook 'like' button underneath the videos!
Don't forget that our sister site, also has resources for teachers to use and download!
Best Wishes

hello jeremy
I want to know if you guys are going to do news videos for us or if they finished

Hello lecmilton!
We will be adding more videos in the future. The next series of Word on the Street is still very early in development though, so it won't be any time soon, I'm afraid! 

In the meantime, don't forget we have lots of listening material as well as videos. Have you tried our Stories and Poems, for example?
