Hi everyone and the LearnEnglish Team. I'm Ilias and I'm from Astrakhan in Russia.
Although it is my first post on this page, I listen all podcasts for more one year. Since that day when I found your web site, I've opened a beautiful "world" of British Council with a good team of presenters, amazing podcasts and a huge base of English.
Though there are a lot of podcasts like E.P., Big City Small World and others, Elementary Podcasts is my favorite one. I'm very impressed with your professional skills of presenters as all your podcasts are so interesting and consist of a lot of information about different subjects. I've never been bored with you.
But now it is a little sad of Rod to leave us. I will miss him like other people all over the world who listen to this podcasts.
I agree with all people who decide that the voices of animals are different in our world. Even in Russia we have a huge variations of animals' voices (cats, dogs, sheep, cows and so on). For example, in my region the voice of cows can be so strange for people from another areas. It can be similar like "muuuuurrrr" and so on.
And I also agree with people who decide that animals from different corners of our world can understand each other.

hi nice to meet you

hi everyone.... I'm abijeects from west Papua

Hi everyone
I need help. Anyone knows what voice that sounds when people going to vomit in English? (sorry for confusing). In here, we usually say "huuuueeeek", what about English? I'm translating a short story from Indonesian into English for my paper but I don't know - how to describe when people get vomit. I'm worried if it isn't right lexical in the context. So I need some help from native speakers.
I'd really appreciate if anyone help me. 

Hi. I'm really thanks you all for your kindly to make the great website. I thing that it have a powerful to improve all learner and I absolutely love it very much.

Hey everyone how are you? 
I'm sharing this message with you in order to help me to spread this idea (hangout on G+)
I doubt this message has successfully delivered to the website Administrator so I'm trying to share it with you because you really read all the comment and I love your comment on it , here it is 
Dear All,
I hope this message finds you all well,
I would like to thank you all for your outstanding effort, everyday my English gets better and better never forget about big city small world, Tess and Ravi I love you tone Tess so much and I wish to be able to get in contact with all of you,

Since the first visit for me to this website I asked about a way to help me to get contact with the other members, like makes some conversation about any topic in order to build a strong ability of speaking but the answer was that's wouldn't be possible at least for now,

So I think why we didn't use the google hangout on your page there you can pick up a day and announce on the page that there will be a hangout at that day and we will talk about grammar or free conversation or any something the member would love to know about Britain or the British people just like that nice conversation between Tess and Ravi, I wish you can manage to do this, I wish I could manage to be able to talk to fadi, harry, sarah, magda, and olivia everyone from big city, that will create some kind of interactive between the listeners and the characters, there is someone else I would love to hang out with she's from "how to"section yes that young lady she cute especial in How to order a round in a pub"" video why there aren't more.

I think this is will help a lot of members to improve their ability of speaking, I'm one of them who want to speak like the natives I thought I can do this just by listening but listening only won't help I need to talk, that's what push me someday to go out and search on the British council in my country and I found one but It was like closed no one there just a place where Cambridge examiners can do their Exams or to book for it, there was a nice library there stand-alone no readers just books feels lonely

I really would like to do hangout with you if that's possible, please don't left me waiting

You might notice about my grammatical mistakes I know there should be a lot, please accept my apologize...

Sorry I talked too much,

With all due respect

I join you.Absolutely your right.From Turkey Hakan

Dear Mo'men,
I'm really glad to hear that LearnEnglish is helping you so much.
We are more on Facebook than Google+ at the moment, because that's where the majority of our users are. A Hangout would be difficult, because I think the maximum number of participants is 10, so although more people could watch, I don't think they could participate.
Also, a lot of the people on LearnEnglish, such as the actors in the 'How To' series don't work on LearnEnglish permanently - they only work for us while they're making the videos.
I understand your need for speaking practice and it's something that I really want LearnEnglish to be better at. Be patient - it will come!
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thanks Adam
