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


how can i do to download this video

Hello baby lily,

I'm afraid that the Word on the Street videos are not available for download, as they are under copyright. We do have a lot of downloadable content, though - all of our podcasts and many apps. Please see our iTunes U and Apps pages to see lists of what's available.

All the best,

Can be useful reading from advanced dictionery to reach to higer level of English,when I enjoy it?
But Im weak.

Hi Mehdi,

If you enjoy it, please continue reading the dictionary. I also used to do this when I was learning Spanish, and I found it somewhat useful. I'd also encourage you, however, to read or listen to texts in English so that you can learn words in context. There's some useful advice on our Help page on how to use LearnEnglish to improve your vocabulary, and I'd recommend you read that as well.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
