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.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,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Kirk,
After downloaded and installed the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player as you advise me to, I could play the second video thoroughly.I am so glad,and thank you for your help.

Best wishes,

how can i download these video
in my country the speed of internet is low

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.

Hello Kirk,
Can you tell me?Is my sentence is correct or not,because I got confused in between the use of get?
Would you like to get your self in the car?

Hello Mandeep,

It is possible to say this (though 'yourself' should be one word), but it sounds very rude. A more polite way to say it would be 'Would you like to get into the car?'

Best wishes,

Thanks Dear Peter M,
Actually i didn't think about it. Thank you for your concern and next time i will keep it in my mind.

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,
