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.'

should i download video first to show it ?

Hello Hamza,

I'm afraid that the Word on the Street videos are not available for download. If you aren't able to view it online, please try installing the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player - that should solve the problem.

where can we write th answers of question tasks ?

Hello abdelhafid souissi,

There's no need to write your answers to the Preparation task; these questions are for you to think about (or discuss with someone else if you are working together) in order to help you get ready for the listening text.

I apreciated this video! It shows the actions which we can realize when we visit a new city. :-)

What's the difference between this online course and the course we have at the council,please?

Hello Mahmoud,

LearnEnglish is not a course, but rather a collection of resources. If you spend a little time exploring the site using the menu at the top of the page (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.), you can get a sense for what's here. You might also find it useful to read through the questions and answers on our Help page.

Best wishes,

Nice video! Thank you!
Does anybody knows what's the name of the song in the begining?

Hello Tantrum,

I'm glad you like the video! The music was written specially for the video, I believe, so I don't think it has a name.

Best wishes,

Thank you for your fast answer, Peter!
I wish it was a song..
