Hello Roxanne Crystal,

The song was made specially for the episode so I can't tell you anything else about it, I'm afraid. This is the only place you can hear it, but you can listen to it as often as you wish!

Best wishes,

I'm sorry. I need help. I'm using iPhone 4, but I can't watch the video. Because my device couldn't support flash player.

Hello moore.xu,

Most of our videos and exercises are made with Flash. We're aware that this is a problem for some users and are working on a solution, but for now I'm afraid you'll probably have to use a different device or find a way to view Flash on your iPhone. Perhaps some other users will have some ideas for you, so please be sure to look for any of their responses.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Seeing this video clip reminds me the old time I travelled England. I enjoyed seeing all the landmarks I had only seen in the books. However, I was in hurry to go to next country because of pre booked airplanes and hotels. I want to get there one more time.

I would like to visit London and other capital cities such as Paris or Rome. I am from another capital city - Prague and it is also beautiful city with many places to visit, reccommend to everybody :)

As a tourist I would like to visit such cities as London, Paris because they have lots of places o interest. I am sure that these capitals will make a deep impression on me. For example, in London I will see the British Museum, the Madame Tussaud's museum, the National Gallery, the Trafalgar Square, the St. Paul's Cathedral. In Paris I will see the Tour d'Eiffel, the Louvre, the Champs-Elysees.
I will take my visitor to the Red Square, the Kremlin, the Historical Museum. After that I will take him to the Big Theatre to see a performance as it is famous all over the world. Then we will visit the Tretyakov Gallery. It consists of different masterpieces and it is valued between foreign tourists because most of pictures were made by Russian painters which are recognizable all over the world.
Yours faithfully,
Tatiana Klimova
