I have joined to the BC web site recently and really hope that it allows me to improve my English. 
What method do you recommend? I see there is a lot of information here but I can´t establish some system...
Thank you,

Hello Elop!
Well, you should see this website as a library – just borrow whatever interests you! These Word on the Street videos are a good place to start, and you might also like our Elementary Podcasts. These are short radio shows about different topics. To help your listening, vocabulary and grammar, you can read the transcripts and do the exercises. You can talk to other learners in the comments, too. There is lots of other material in our Listen and Watch section as well. If you want to work on grammar, take a look at our grammar section.
Don't forget that we also have a search box. Put a topic you're interested in into the box – like 'meeting people' or 'the present simple' - and you'll get a list of pages about that topic.
We have a lot of different levels on the site, so don't worry if something is too hard – find something easier, and come back to it later. Just try to look at something every day!
Happy New Year to you, too!

I couldn't find transcript.

Hello Tolga,
The 'language focus' pages don't have transcripts - they're like mini-lessons. Just listen and learn, don't worry about understanding every one.
