how can I download this video?

Hello dhekamora,

I'm afraid the videos can't be downloaded for technical and legal reasons.  You can, however, download the transcript and the support pack by using the links below the video window, and you can of course watch the video as often as you like online.

Best wishes,

what's the meaning of           "better than most" ,please   ?

Hello ahmed only,

It means that Colin knows the park better than most people, which makes sense, since he has spent a lot of time there.

hello guys
breathtaking scenery, amazing !
it reminds me of the movie "Pride and Prejudice"  released in 2005.everything in this movie is beautiful,beautiful actress and gentleman ,charming England accent,beautiful natural scenery , beautiful music,and certainly yet beautiful love.that is why I love this country so much. 

I would like enjoying the sunset at the end of the video. It is bound to be romantic to stay with my lover immersing in the scene.

There is no doubt that the most beautiful scene in my hometown is the golden fall. I am always delighted to see the broad land covered by the orange trees. The oranges on the tree are so lovely. Also, they really taste delicious. Most important of all, the great harvest indicates a better life in the following year. We thank the nature and we love the land, indeed.

hello man
I like the scenery as much in this video as you do.but,I disagree with you a little bit. nature is always so pure and pleasant until you see a couple of lovers or more playing around in it.
thank u

hello thanks for this incredible video one question i want to ask is how can i read numbers like 139 meters i want to learn how i can pronounce numbers like that and the rule of saying numbers in general and also why do you say 2ooo meters you say it two thousand not two thousands , thanks and kind regards to you and all the team :)

Hello littlemoon86,

The correct way to say the number is 'one hundred and thirty-nine'.  The most common mistake is to forget the 'and', so remember that when we have a large number (100 and more), we use 'and' before the final numbers 1-99.  For example:

100 = one hundred

101 = one hundred and one

500,042 = five hundred thousand and forty-two

501,342 = five hundred and one thousand, three hundred and forty-two


'Two thousand' looks odd, doesn't it?  However, this (using the singular form) is the way we say all numbers of this type:

two hundred (not hundreds)

two thousand (not thousands)

two million (not millions)

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,
