Task 4

Language level

Advanced: C1
Upper intermediate: B2


I find it an interesting project, didn't hear about it before, I heard Richard says something like "they are protecting some of the most important plants in the world", I wonder who decide a plant is more important than other, I guess the think is to protect them because they endanger species.
The second question it's quite large in terms of response, but I would say we need to have in mind reduce our meat intake (that's because meat industry cause deforestation and the waste of a huge amount of water), second be more conscience about the use of plastic, so instead of going to the supermarket and take plastic bag that latter we will litter, would be better to have your own recyclable one.  We all I'm pretty sure produce either the same or more rubbish than what you showing there. 
Thanks for the info!

i would like to know which video and vocabulary are for at advanced level in British council c2.
thank you

I liked this video very much. And the idea of the Eden project is wonderful! It's a pity that in my country we can't see something like this. I respect  Great Britain and the people who do it! I think they are really generous and noble.Thanks to such people our planet has a chance to survive!

I like this video I would like to live there

Hello ademengin!
Sorry to hear you're having problems! Users in Turkey can normally see our videos, so would you mind answering these questions?

  • Which web browser are you using? (Firefox, Internet Explorer...?)
  • What computer or phone are you using?
  • What do you see where the videos and tasks should appear? Nothing, or is there a message?
  • Have you tried any other web pages on LearnEnglish?
  • Do you still have the same problem if you use a different computer?

Also, we know some users do have issues, and we are working on alternatives. Please go to our new episodes of Word on the Street – say, Shakespeare - and try the link that says “Can't see video? Click here!”. Let me know if you can see that video OK.
Let's see if we can sort out your issue!
