Hi , I ´m also new memmber of this web. I´m from Spain. Are you studing English ?

Very interesting subject ! I found the pronouciation is clear, that nice to understand.
Furthermore, i've got 100% !!! :)

Thank  you a lot for these elementary podcasts but I have a little sugestion for you:  try not to repeat the address (learnenglishpodcast@britishcouncil.org) for so many times, it's so annoying! once for each podcast it's enough.

 Hi Christina

Thanks for the feedback. We'll pass it on to the people who are working on series 3.

Thanks

hey there mates! I can't open and download this episode's activities. The other episodes work well. Anyone else have got the same problem?

Hi there,
I can access everything on this page. I checked with some colleagues in different countries and they were able to open it fine, too.
Can you try again, in case it was a temporary problem? If it happens again, please tell us exactly what error message (if any) you see.
Best wishes,
