I cant download audia for improving ielts listening. How can it download.

Hello Faruque Hossain,

The videos here in Word on the Street are not available for download, and in any case are not intended for IELTS preparation - though of course you're welcome to use them however you'd like to.

If you're interested in preparing for the IELTS, I'd suggest you try our IELTS section, as well as TakeIELTS, where you can find resources designed specifically for the exam.

Best regards,

I love England, however I'm Egyptian.

It is fun to learn the history of England:)
I already knew that the queen doesn't participate in politics in England. however, I didn't know why and just now I realised it.

"the queen doesn't participate in politics in England" (by the way, is this right sentence?? Or could kindly you revise it for me?)

Hello Lucie_K,

Yes, that sentence is correct.

Best wishes,

hello. i've faced 1 confusing question and i hope you will give me explanation. i've listened a music that its words indicated below (subtitle)... it says " WHEN JESUS SAY YES NOBODY CAN SAY NO"...... why it's written without "S" i think it should be "says" for instance: "when Jesus says yes nobody can say no" is it correct??? please explain it if you have time, thank you all

It was interesting to know more about the history of the country that I want to learn its language.
