Hi guys!
Thank you so much for another amazing podcasts series!It has helped me a lot.
I love animals,all of them.My family and I always have dogs in our house.They are the friendliest animal in the world!

Hello !
Could you help me with something, please ? I am very confused about using of "at the farm" and "on the farm". When can I use them properly ?
How it is right? " I work at the farm or on the farm ? "
"I am at the farm or on the farm"?
"This story takes place on the farm or at the farm" ?
"I saw many animals at the farm or on the farm "?
Thank you very much !
All the best !

Hello clauvera2016,

I think on the farm describes something which is a part of the farm and not just located there.

At the farm has a more general meaning. It describes something which is located there and may or may not be part of the farm.

 

If I said 'I'm working on the farm' then it would be clear that I am doing something related to farming – working in the fields, looking after animals etc.

 

If I said 'I'm working at the farm' then I could be doing something related to farming, but I could also be doing something at that location, such as decorating the house or fixing the roof.

i love animals.they are incridble,the feeling they have for each other and for humans is one of the greatest things i ve seen.

i dont know much about how british people treat animals,but i think they love dogs.

in my country(iran) all of the people are not animal lovers,and even there are some people that bother them and unfortunately there are not suitable laws to support animals

Honestly I’m not a big pet lover, there’s only dog living in my house while some other people for instance, can have more than one pet. From where I am, people treat pretty well with animals. Indeed, I can’t remember a family which doesn’t have at least a pet.
Besides, I would say I’m very grateful for all the series of elementary podcasts I had to go through. Thanks to you The Learn English Team for your feedback. Indeed, my listening skill got much better.

hello!I join Abdulla05 in his comment:I enjoyed all the podcasts Serie 3;It was a great pleasure to listen to the different characters ,to learn various topics and improve my english vocabulary!It was pleasant to do the exercises too!Thanks to the whole team.
For my part,I love animals;When I was a child ,we always had cat and dog at home and now It's the same:I've got two dogs:a labrador male (Kazan)and a "berger hollandais" female(Night).I think animals bring a lot to humans..whether it is dog,cat,horse..or others...I couldn' do without my pets!HAPPY SUMMER TO EVERY BODY!

Hello

So I've completed Elementary podcast series one, two and three.

I've got a question about the transcript:

Emily: Carolina del Barco! I know what you're thinking. Don't you say a word!

I think that in the previous podcast you said that we always use the imperative without a person. But you used the personal pronoun 'you'.
Wouldn't it be better to say: 'Don't say a word!'?

Bye

Hello User_User,

The imperative does not generally have a stated subject. However, it is possible to add 'you' to make the sentence more emphatic, and this is an example of that.

Hello everyone, I am back. I listened and commented through 20 episodes of series 03. I started my job in early January, so until now, I can write my comment for the last this episode. I love animals. My family has a dog and we love him. I think all animals can understand people's language, just they can not speak. But we can feel their emotions by looking into their eyes. And I think the British love pet too.
By the way, I would like to say thank you to British Council. I learned many lessons and it helps me improve my listening skills and learn more about British culture. I hope you will make more podcasts and videos to help everyone who uses English as a second language (besides the native language). Thank you again.

Hello ! I love all the animals ,but Rottweilers are having a special place in my heart , I have two of them Kira and Luna (sisters) , they are my kids so I love them very much.
