I'd love to Halloween,it's so funny. But I 've never join the Halloween party in china. I am looking forward to having a chance to get Halloween party in the furture.

i already have watch this video, funny video this is story about Halloween Party where Step & Aslie try to prepare the Halloween party with concept as the magician, but unfortunately the property for magic it doesn't work,

this is a good lesson

It's really funny video. We have no Halloween day in our country. I could learn about culture and history of Holloween day by seeing this video. thanks. By the way, I have a little curiosity about 'Hallowe'en' . why the apostrophe is there(between 'we' and 'en')? It's very small small curiosity..

Hello silverwing,

The word 'Hallowe'en' is a conflation of a longer name: 'All Hallows Even' ('even' is an old spelling for 'evening' and 'hallows' means 'holy' or 'saints'). The apostrophe is there in place of the missing letter 'v'.

Thank you for the interesting question!

How can I download the film?

Hello Veronika,

I'm afraid the films on the site cannot be downloaded for technical and legal reasons. You can download the transcript and you can watch the film as many times as you wish online, however.

poor steven ))))

I think this video is very difficult for me to clearly understand , I just guess the meaning of video because Ashlie spoke so fast. How can I do to improve my listening skill?

Jeremy gave some advice to another learner with the same problem a bit further down the page. Did you see it?
If you can't understand these videos at all, then you probably should start with something easier - our Elementary Podcasts would probably be suitable.
