It was great. What a delightful place!

its amazing and also the train...

it's really amazing. It's said that people are cold in Britain, but I see the people here are very friendly and open. I hope I can come to this place one day.

I cant see any video Why?

So wonderful way to teach, in attracting views and exciting ones, thanks for everything you've done for us to spread the language of Shakespeare. Mby

hi every body, 
it is a great video I'd like to go to the top of that mountain, that place is amazing, but I'd liked to go there on the train not cycling like stephen, he looked very exhausted like ashlie said.
best wishes, sofia.

Hi everyone,
I'm just new in this thing. I'm Joan and I'm from Lleida, in Catalunya. I speak a bit of English, but it is always good to learn more and more, and this site really helps alot I think. One question: does anybody know the name of the two songs that appear in this video of "Snowdon Scene 2". They're cool, I like them a lot. One of the songs I mean is the one that sounds at the very beginning of the clip. The other one is the one you can listen when Ash gets into the train, right after she says "What an amazing train!".
Thanks a lot in advance!

Why I can`t see anything,

Dear All,
Thank you very much for your quick answers! I really do appreciate that!
One more question - in task #2 there is a sentence - "Snowdon is 1000 meters tall" - i've always thought that in such cases we must say - "1000 meters high". Can we really say "tall" about a mountain?
Thank you,

Dear Andrew,
Thanks for your kind words.
It's definitely possible to use both 'tall' and 'high' when talking about mountains.
Best wishes,
