  • after some verbs, e.g. 'Are you waiting to see me?'

Thank you so much for your answer ,kirk.

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..

i cant hear video on moblie ?

Hello SuSin,

The videos and interactive activities on LearnEnglish require a Flash-compatible device, so if you are using a mobile device then this may be an issue. You may try the alternative version of the video under the 'Can't see video? Click here!' link, but if this does not work then using a different device (a laptop or desktop computer) may be the only solution.

Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

thank you so much, Peter

Hello SuSin,

To watch and listen to the videos, as well as most of the interactive exercises, you need a Flash-compatible device, and many mobile devices are not Flash-compatible. Try accessing the site on a laptop or desktop to see if this solves the problem.

Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team'm a new member....i can't understand that how i can join to the podcasts....anybody can help me plz.....

Hello Omar931,

There is no particular order in Word on the Street. Just choose a topic, watch the first video a couple of times, and then watch it again while reading the Transcript. Then do the exercises. Be sure to keep track of new vocabulary, and practise pronouncing phrases from the video - try to make your pronunciation as close as possible to the video's. Then move on to the next video.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
