Do you enjoy going to the cinema? What sort of films do you like watching? How about films from your country? Are there any you’d recommend to other podcast listeners?

I like war, horror, comedies,  I think the film has to have a good story and hold your attention independently its generous. In my country currently,  we have good movies. I recommend ELITE SQUAD  1 and 2  they are very good and show exactly what happen in Rio de Janeiro slums. 

hi, i know it is late to give my opinion about British food, but the most important for me is to discus any subject in English. well, i don t really have an idea about British food, but i know that their breakfast is like a lunch, so here in morocco, when someone eat a lot at breakfast we say "you had a British breakfast". also, British people are known of their good temper may be because they eat a lot of fish and drink  much black tea. however, i think Moroccan food is from the most famous all over the world. i m sure when you visit morocco you will agree with me. 

I heard some good news in this podcast. It's about the coming soon of word on the street. I really like this series. Everything in it is very good, the places, the characters(Ashly, Steven and the teacher) and the beautiful landscapes. I wish to watch it soon. But there is only one comment on what Ashly sometimes wore like mini skirts or hot shorts. I am as a muslim girl don't like to see that. And what I want to tell Ashly that she is very very beautiful and don't need to wear clothes like that to get a lot of fans. 
Thanks a lot for all of your efforts.
And best wishes 

In 2011, I stayed in London a week, I tried many kind of British food. And like all of them

hello i'm new member and i subcribe to learn english i speak french i come from COTE D'IVOIRE

Hello Adam thanks for your suggestion

I had a chance to try british food and I disagree that english food is horrible.
Its amazing because in London you find every food from all over the world, so its for every taste.
I tried several kinds of food when I was in London: arabian, italian and of course, british food.
I went to my cousin's house in London and he prepared a typical english meal, roast beef, I love it.
In the morning, I had a english breakfast, with beans, sausage, fried eggs, sometimes bread with jam, sometimes fish and chips, I enjoyed. A english breakfast is like have a lunch to me, is a big meal. According some researches, to eat well in the morning is more healthy because our body need more energy in this part of the day.
Finally, I can say I like to eat british food.

Hi don't get confused,I can hear audio .I have trouble in exercise.I can't do exercise.what should I do to get Flash On my iphone

Hi Jem,
I don't think it's possible to get Flash on an iPhone, which is why lots of websites don't work properly on these phones. There are a lot of arguments with Apple and Adobe about this!
We are trying to find a solution to this problem, but for now you will have to use a phone or tablet or computer with Flash to see the interactive exercises. The other alternative is to look at the pdf exercises under the 'instructions and downloads' link. You should be able to read pdfs on an iPhone.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
