Hi learnning 1970,

I've checked the page and the tasks are working correctly, so it looks like a local issue. Some users have had problems with certain browsers - particularly Firefox - so I would suggest first trying to access the site via a different browser to see if that helps. Please try this and let us know if it solves the problem for you.


Best wishes,

Hi,I can't see video. How can I fix it?

Hi The LearnEnglish Team, at time (01:09) Ashlie says, 'That is it'. Is it the same as 'That's it'? Thank you very much.

Hello Aung Thet Naing,

Yes, that's correct. She uses 'That is it' here to say that she's fed up and wants this problem to end.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

please, how can I record the video on MP3 to use it in class?

Hello francinedesouza,

I'm afraid the videos are not available for download for technical and legal reasons. They can, however, be accessed as often as you wish online.

Best wishes,

Hi I am new. I do private tutoring in English in my spare time. I have registered in a quite a few websites on the English language teaching but I must say this one by the British Council is the best. I have been studying some materials from Stories & Poems, Word on the Street, Big City Small World and Elementary Podcasts. They are just excellent! Many many thanks to the LearnEnglish Team for your hard work!

Looking forward to more interesting materials.

Best wishes
