Task 1

Task 2

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.'

Hello maricoul,

I was just able to see the video, so I think our site is working correctly. I'd suggest you download and install the Adobe Flash Player on your device. Even if you already have it, sometimes re-installing it will solve this kind of problem.

My first video and i didnt understand nothing jaja

Hello.The second video can not be seen fully, because it can just run for 3 seconds. And the first video is not available for me.Would you like to tell me what is wrong with it?

Hello linsen,

I was just able to watch both videos without any problems. I'd suggest you either try a different device or that you download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player. I think that will solve the problem, but let us know if not.

All the best,

Hello Noshzad,

I'm afraid that Word on the Street videos are not available for download. You might want to try one of our audio and video apps, where the video might work better for you.

Is it possible to buy all the videos of Word on the Street? This is a really really good material for learning English. I'm about to leave UK and because the internet connection in my country is unstable, I hope very much that I can keep these videos. Thank you very much for help.

Hello mc04yjq,

I'm afraid these videos are only available online and cannot be downloaded, for technical and legal reasons.

Best wishes,
