Wow! When can I get here? So amazing, I really want to visit London as soon as possible. Because of the high cost of transport in London, It takes me pretty long time to save enough money to make a trip to London.

i think London is one of favorite distention for tourist in the word , many transportation as alternative to go somewhere , so it is make easy to who the people to sightseeing in the London city. London I coming ................, I will go there someday.

Wow, That's a brilliant video!! Every little thing London have is fantastic. there's something special about London. I would like to go there. But I can't speak English well. I just lose my nerve when I stand in front of Foreigners. It's always me that ends up listening only. I want to speak English well, like jazz.

That's an incredible video , what amazing sights !  Fantastic ! I hope I can visit London one day. the only thing I can't do as usual is that i can't repeat their sentences  after listening because the music is so loud and i felt that the rate of speaking is faster than usual , isn't it? anyway I have enjoyed watching it. Thanks a million.

Hi littlemoon86,
I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the video and the sights. Yes, they speak quite quickly in this video, more so than in most others in Word on the Street, but please don't be discouraged. With more practice, I'm sure you'll be able to understand such speech more easily.
Best wishes,

Hi there!
My name is Cleison and I'm from Brazil. This website is great. I can always learn new words and expressions and improve my listening skills through it.
I have a doubt about the transcription. When they are about to get in the London Eye, Aslhie said:
"Oh, and the weather’s so good, we’ll be able to see loads."
What does she means with "we’ll be able to see loads"?
For me, seems that the meaning is "we'll be able to see a lot of things".
Is it an usual term? Can I use it with another verbs or in another tenses too? Like this:
"We'll be able to do loads"
"We've seen loads"
Thank you.
