Hi. Please, I'd like to know the meaning of "A happy result all round", said by Olivia. I can't find in Portuguese nothing like that. Thanks.

Hello Anderson Bortolai,

It means that everyone was satisfied with the result.

Best wishes,

Hello julian1111,

I'd first recommend that you read the advice on improving your writing and pronunciation on our Help page. Then there are several resources that you might find useful – Writing for a purpose (for academic English), the Writing section of the ESOLNexus (for common transactional texts) and the Writing Skills section of LETeens (for tasks typical on exams).

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Hello everyone. I'm new here. I know a little bit English. But I'd like to learn more and be able to speak and understand it fluently. Wish me luck and thank you BC team. :)

hi dear team
your program is very wonderful, there isn't another rich program like yours.
so i have a question: is it correct to say "You’re looking after him?"
for me, i thought "are you looking after him?" is the correct sentence.


Yes, it's possible to ask a question in informal English by putting a question mark at the end of a statement. However, it can suggest surprise or disbelief, so be careful how you use this technique.

hello, how much episodes in series 1 ? 12 or more ?

Hi Samah10,

If you look at the Big City Small World home page and click on the A-Z list (or look at the A-Z of Content on the lower right), you'll see that there are 12 episodes in Series 1. The next episode after that is Series 2 Episode 1.
