Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

We can use the infinitive with 'to':

  • after some verbs, e.g. 'Are you waiting to see me?'
  • after some adjectives, e.g. 'His accent is really difficult to understand.'
  • to give reasons for actions, e.g. 'We went to the shops to buy some dinner.'

I would like to visit the historical sites to learn the history of the city

Me too, We can learn much about the history from the historical sites

First , I would like to visit the historical sites to learn the history of the city . Then , I would go to a restaurant or a cafe . Also I would walk on the streets to see the people . And I think American Accent is harder to understand than British Accent .

I like to see historical buildings such as palace,castle etc.
I think it isn't very difficult and very easy

It's great to see and obtain information about London's historical places.

The video is difficult to listen, I have to listen manny time. In my mind, English people are old fashioned but after watching this, I see they are funny, dynamic, and proactive. The video is very good at the story which makes me funny. Thank you all so much

How can I download this video?

Hello farzad1984,

I'm afraid the videos on LearnEnglish are not available for download for technical and legal reasons. Our audio-only pages such as Big City Small World and Elementary Podcasts have download links, but the video cannot be downloaded.
