Hello nguyenbaongoc.ptit,
I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems with the download.  I've checked it and it works fine for me, so I'm not sure what the cause of the problem is.  Have you tried right-clicking on the link and choosing 'Save As...'?  That method may solve your problem but if not then please reply and explain what happens when you try.

I have studied abroad twice and I think it s one of the best things you can do to understand other cultures,toughts,etc.It really helps you to ope your mind in some ways.It s quite different from study in your country,because you miss everything like family,friends,food....My first time was in the north of France in a host family.They lived in a farm near the road(like in some americans films) and they had a lot of children.That was curious because a live in big city,but I liked it.The second time was better because I shared a flat with some foreign students.We had parties,went to the beach,more parties,beach....But I didn t learn so french as the first time,because with in a host family you are close to the culture.I dont know exactly how to say about culture shock because I ve never had this experience,in fact I  wouldn t mind to live and work in a lot of countries.I will repeat.A good advice could be: don t go abroad to study or work in another country if you think can be a bad experience for you.

how can i improve my english in a funny way?

Hi aria m,
Welcome to LearnEnglish!  Do you mean 'funny' (it makes people laugh) or 'fun' (it's enjoyable)?  Either way I think you'll find a lot of things to do here on LearnEnglish.  You might try some of our vocabulary games, for example, or some of our audio and video materials.  Try different ones and I'm sure you'll find a lot of things that will be both fun and funny!

In previous  time i would not know that maybe is an adverb.So i have learnt that after reading the comment of sir Jeremy Bee.
thank you sir

The sound was slow and the style of accent wasn't British style.

Hi everybody .. I am from Turkey .. I am sorry but I didn't like the pronunciation of the girl in the video .. She is speaking very slowly and her accent is like Chinese people :/ .. I think only a British person can teach us the real English   ..But the site is quite helpful and amazing .. So I just want to hear Britain voices here please !!
Thanks :) 

Of course she has a chinese accent because she is a girl from China telling us her experience in the UK!
To be honest I think it is also good listen people speaking English you different accents. In the real world the people speaking standard English are not the majority.

Hello faziletta,
Thank you for your warm words regarding the site!  It's great to know people find it useful and that we're helping people with their English.
Most of the speakers on our recordings are from the UK, but we also include other accents on our recordings.  As you know, English is a world language - in many ways, it is the world's language - and it is used by many people who are not British (or from the US, or Australian etc).  A French person, for example, talking to a Chinese person will very often use English as their means of communication, and so we think it is important for learners of English to hear and be able to understand all accents in English.  Hearing different ways of speaking is very important.
I hope that explains why we use different accents.
Best wishes and good luck with your learning!

Hi Peter , 
I can understand you .. Yes we should learn different accents too . because we can even speak with a Chiniese or an İndian or an African person one day so as a common way to communicate with each other we speak English with our different accents but,  I  am trying to speak English like a British person so If a Turkish learns English speaking like a Chinese that will be so funny and very different type of accent :D .. Anyway I will try to listen more Britian speakers from here :) Some of the members of this site are very good speakers :) Really thanks to you all for your helps :)
