Hello, I do not understand how can I complete the tasks? for instance, task 3 says: Use the correct expressions to complete the information about the English Civil War.
what do I have to complete? where are the exercises and answers?


Hello violeta,

It sounds like you need to download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash player. That should solve the problem, but if not, please let us know.

All the best,

Hi ajmalmayichery,

Listening to our videos and podcasts is a great way to improve your English, but I'm afraid that the Word on the Street videos are not available for download. To see all our downloadable content, please see our iTunes U and Apps pages.

Hello everybody,
I can't catch what the soldiers say at 02.44 minute, when Amandeep has been recruited.
What do they shout?

Hello Eugenia,

They should 'huzzah!', which is an old-fashioned form of 'hurray!'

Best wishes,
