Hi The LearnEnglish Team,
I've just moved to your new website from and I'm a bit surprised! The most recent episode is the fifth from Series 2 and I've already listened to nearly all episodes from Series 4. How can I find the rest of them?
Help me, please!

Hi Juras,
Yes, that's true. EnglishOnline broadcast Big City Small World faster than LearnEnglish and so we are now in a slightly difficult situation. I'm afraid all you can do is wait.
Best wishes,

It was a good episode .I've learnt a new expression like "talk to the devil".
I wish everybody luck.

Could you tell me there are any bookshops from the Britishcouncil in Ukraine and what kind of books can you recomend for intermediate level?

Hello Vadim,
The British Council works in over 100 countries and I don't know about all the services that different offices provice. Your best move is to contact your local centre in the Ukraine.
As for books, I have my own preferences, but I can't really suggest what is best for you. Make sure the book you choose has the right balance of materials for your personal needs.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

hello teacher
    my name is Rurunrorn, i need some help about my english so can you tell me what i should to begin in english first? because i am not good about that and now  i am not sure my sentence to send to you
    i hope that  you will help me about my problems,i really want to know yours suggests
   thank you 

Hello Rurunrorn,
It's hard for me to suggest where you should start learning English, as I don't know what your strengths and weaknesses are in this language. If you want to learn from this website, then look around it for sections that you find useful and work through all the materials in them.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thank you very much
