Hi, Adam!
So the right for the case of "Old Schools Quad" is to use the definite article "the". I got it.
About Sally, I still can't hear her say "are". I inclusively put less speed to the video. But well, if you say that she says "are"...
Thank you very much.

I heard one of the famous university  is Oxford. the university has many college and students in the world. They are a very smart and intelligent student.  

It`s gorgeous!!!! I hope  my daughters can study there next year. The problem is that it is so expensive. But I want give them the best.  Bye!!!!!

O.K. If I had a new life I would spend it at Oxford University! In the present my life (I'm seventy), though .....never say never...,  it's too late for me! I'm happy just trying to learn a bit of English! Thanks so much for your "job".

Answer D: its research projects] should be one of the answers.  Richard and Sally mentioned research several times in the video.

There is a known problem for our users in Iran (and China) who can't see the videos on LearnEnglish.
We are experimenting with a solution. Please take a look at one of our Word on the Street pages and click where it says 'Can't see video? Click here!' Please tell us if that works for you.
Best wishes,
