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.

Hi, I want to speak like a British. But how????????????????

People speak so fast and, unfortunatelly , I haven't been practicing English for long time (more than 5 years), so I have to work hard to understand English dialogues, but  I'm sure this course will be very useful for me.
Many thanks

Really good, very helpful. And now I know how to use "the works"  and also "catch up".

really i like britishcouncil.. i can improve my listening and speaking through britishcouncil.

hello , it is difficult to understand, i need to practice , i want to improve my listening skill

I love these videos, I'd never heard several of the expressions that the performers said in the dialogue. Thanks to Adam for explaining us about the meaning of " The works". It was very very useful to me in order to understand this expression.

It's so difficult for me.
