thanks to learn english i can increase my enlish score right now

Actually , i dont know alot about british weather , but i think its rainy & cloudy most of the time .
In my home country ,the weather isnt suddenly changable like european or american countries and states ,respectively . It starts to become unfavorable from november lasting until february ,during which people prefer to stay in the home , however if they want to go outside , closed areas like malls or coffe shops will be suitable places for them !!

British weather is mostly cloudy and rainy. I like rainy weather and when the rain start i like to be outside and walk

I know it is usually rainy and chilly and it's rainer and chillier than my country :) People usually watch Tv at home, go to the shopping centres, go to the cinemas when the weather is bad in my country.

Yes, I know. It usally rains.
At the Northern East of Turkey, it usually rains too.
They usually watch TV at home.

when the rain begin ı want to watch tv

I am wondering that when word on the street is showed on Tv in Vietnam, it always have a expert talking about the problem of everything in the word. But that part is not exhibited here. I do not why? I think it is very useful, so you can explain me? If I write incorrectly something, please help me to point out mistakes. I am not good at English!!!

Hello thaobuiphuong,

Each Word on the Street episode is in five parts and the part in which Rob, our expert, explains some of the language in the episode is called 'Language Focus'. You can see a link to this on the right of the page.

Thank you. But I do not talk about Mr.Rob from British Council, i want to mention about experts from BBC. I saw them explaining all problem of the program, not Rob!!!

Hello thaobuiphuong,

In that case I'm afraid I cannot help you. What the BBC puts in its programmes is the BBC's decision. Word on the Street is a joint production with the BBC and the British Council, but what you are describing is something the BBC has done independently, and not part of our materials.


Best wishes,
