Thanks for video it's very helpfull. I have been in London last year and similar like this video I've lost oneself near London Eye. It was amazing horrible experience.

I dont understand the phrase Stephen said "there u go mate", please tell me what its means.

If you type 'there you go' into the Cambridge Dictionaries Online box at the right-hand side of the page, you will see several definitions. Try to work out which one fits the context of what Stephen is saying.

Now,thanks to LE Team I could see a interesting and beautiful view of London.I
would like to visit it soon because I ´ve never been in any place in the UK,so I'm studying  English in order to know better  these countries .By the way! Somebody could tell me which is the best month to visit them? I'm a bit afraid about the weather because here-Canary Islands_ there is a warm weather.

Hello Maria,
I am very jealous of you, living on the Canary Islands! The warmest months in the UK are probably July and August, but you can get bad weather even then and you can get good weather in other months. For example, on the 1st of October this year, one part of England was 29.9C! But last year August was very cold with one part of England at 12.8C.
So all you can do is choose a month, book your trip and pray!

Hello and thank you The Learn English Team.
I'd like to ask about the phrase " a lot less traffic ".I looked up the phrase " a lot less " in Cambridge Dictionaries Online. But I can't found out it there. Then I tried to guess what this mean. Does a lot less traffic means more or less traffic ?
And when I was looking up some words in the dictionary, I found a phrase "thanks a lot " means to show you are annoyed when someone has done something you are unhappy about or has failed to help you in some way.
" Thanks a lot " isn't an expression of appreciation,is it? 

oh! I like that the subway T-shirt, "Mind The Gap" haha~ I'm going to get one when I visit London

This one was fantastic and very funny what can i say more?

Thanks for this amazing movie clip.

Keep Continuously working on new ones.
