Nice lesson.

I’m from Tokyo in Japan. I love Tokyo because there’s always something interesting to do and usually I can meet various people. Unfortunately we cannot go out, go abroad freely at the moment due to COVID-19, l’m happy to be here, and meet new people.

I am from Algiers, the capital of Algeria. Algiers is a big city located on the Mediterranean Sea. There are many beautiful places to see in Algiers, the food is delicious, and people here are really friendly.

I´m fromBogotá, Colombia. Bogotá is very cool, but the people are very nice and is a beautiful city, with diferents places to visit like Monserrate hill, The Candelaria Town and others.

I'm from Turkey and I live in Istanbul, I love this city. At the moment I can't travel very often but I am planing I will.

I am from Turkey. Why is a different country written in the right corner?
Because There isn't Turkey in the learnenglish.britishcouncil.org

Hello TalhaÖzkan,

We are currently unable to process payments in Turkey, which means that subscriptions are not available there. This is reason why 'Turkey' is not available as an option at the moment, and is also the reason the system chooses another option.

I'm sorry about this, and also for taking so long to get back to you. Hopefully, we'll be able to offer subscriptions to users in Turkey in the near future.

All the best,

Kirk

Hello TalhaÖzkan,

It sounds as if there is some technical problem with our registration process. I'll ask our technical team to have a look at it, but I'm afraid it's going to be another week or two before they will be able to do that.

In the meantime, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. And thanks very much for pointing this out to us!

All the best,

Kirk
