Thanks

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.

Hello british council, I am not able to see the practise materials in this podcast. I get the error  "xml config loading error"
 
 

Hello!
Sorry to hear you are getting an error. Do you only see it on this page or on all of our pages?

This issue is happening on all the pages. I am not able to see any video or practise material. Althoug, few days ago I could see it. Thank you for the support! 

Hello again,
I'm not sure what's causing this problem. I once saw something similar on a computer that was accessing the internet via a proxy server. Do you know what that is?
Best wishes,
