Hi !
Thank you a lot for those lessons, we rarely find those kinds of materials for free ! Great job BritishCouncil :)

Hi LearnEnglish Team,

Can I use "quid" for smaller or bigger amount? For example: 1,000 quid or 10 quid. Can I use "quid" in informal writing? Thanks in advance.

Hello Truc,

You can use 'quid' with any amount in an informal style, especially when speaking. It's certainly used in writing, but not as much as in speaking. Without knowing what kind of text you're referring to, it's difficult to say how appropriate or not it would be there.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello. My English is not very good, but I think I learn with BritishCouncil very good. I thank you for your work!!!

Hello Hadi,

Rob says 'Nice outfit, Ashlie'. You can find a definition of 'outfit' by using the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box on the right side of this page.

All the best,

Hello Chu Anh Quan,

This is something we're working on and will provide one day in the future. I'm afraid it will not be very soon, as it is a lot of work! In the meantime, if you have a question about a specific short segment, you can ask us here by providing the timecode (e.g. 2:04-2:10) and we or other users will do our best to help you.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

That was great.


I can't see the video. I opened this page from Safari and Firefox. I can see other videos however.
