Night Out Scene 1

Stephen and Ashlie meet up with some friends for a night out in London. Will they manage to find a venue that everyone will enjoy?

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Hello, I really don't understand the meaning of "hit the town" , could you explain me please? Thank you very much!

In the evening like to go to the theatre, movies, restaurants.
I would you go to the disco for a night out.
I don't have a favourite place where I like going to; it's depends on days or friends.

Hi Word on the street,
I've watched your programme on TV everyday and I am so interested in it. There is a part "Seat on the street" on TV but I can't see it on website. Could you please help me out to find where it is on your website?
Thank you very much.

Hello Lawrence,

I'm afraid that the 'Seat on the Street' segment is not available on LearnEnglish. As far as I know, it's not available anywhere on the internet, but if you do an internet search for 'BBC Word on the Street' perhaps you can find something.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

We usually go to the cinema or just stay at home and watch a movie .

Thank you very much for your help. Sparking water is a brand?

Hello Nusly Martinez,

Sparkling water a kind of bottled water rather than a brand. It is the name for water which is fizzy (with bubbles). The opposite is 'still water'.


Best wishes,
