Nice video and very good exercise.

Hi, could you please instruct me how to download this video into my computer? Since, I can't surf the internet frequently to hear this video many times. Thanks for your help.

hi there i'm new member from algeria, i hope improve my english ,hope u ll help me

hello,is there any section for us to practice our writing skills or would someone like to amend my essay?thanks in advance for your attention.

Hello Sarah!

Welcome to LearnEnglish! We don't have a single writing practice area, I'm afraid, and we get too many comments to correct personal work.

Practising writing is difficult without a teacher, but you can always try to write sentences. Many of my students like to keep a diary. Also, you can write comments for other students to read on LearnEnglish - this will let you practice sharing your ideas and get feedback from other learners. Find a page or topic on the website you are interested in, and join in the discussion!

Also, remember that one of the best ways of improving your writing is to read as much as you can! This will help your grammar and vocabulary without you noticing. Why not try some of our Stories & Poems?

Hi Poussvite,
Are you saying that you can't watch the videos on this page on your iPad? I just tested it on an iPod Touch and the video played fine, so I think it should work on an iPad too.
Merry Christmas to you too!
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

does someone know ,while we can download the transcripts of the vidéos in pdf,
if there's a possibility to get the sound part in mp3 in order to charge them on an iPod f.e?

Hi Poussvite,
We thought about making the mp3s available, but we decided that many of the clips wouldn't work well without the images. If we get enough people asking we might reconsider, but remember there are many other mp3s on LearnEnglish.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
