I like this. Shuna is the winner. She asked the receptionist when she didn't know the meaning of "D.O.B" and "Purpose of Visit" in the form. The receptionist was very helpful. She gave the full form of "D.O.B" and explained its meaning. As for "Purpose of Visit", she gave the synonym of "Purpose" - "Reason", and gave a few examples.

Hi there!
I found the video and the idea for the game great to work in classroom (I'm a teacher in Brazil). I'd like to make this a real class, and for this I need to know if it's possible to have this video downloaded.
By the way, thanks for all your support! I've always used articles, activities and ideas from British Council, as it is a reliable resource.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for your comment. We're really happy that you enjoyed the video and would like to use it with your class. Unfortunately, the videos aren't available to download at the moment. One solution could be to download the worksheets and then the students could watch the video at home and respond to the video the following lesson.

Hello, congratulations for your website. In my opinion, it's very useful for English learners. There are many resources available in order to improve Language skills.
I'm Italian and to be honest I'm sorry for Claudio, who doesn't make a good impression in these videos. Unfortunately in the wold exist many stereotyps (in Italian language, we say "luoghi comuni") about Italian people and Italy in general. I'm sorry for Claudio, but luckily Italians aren't all like him and the message that is given about my country here isn't good and unfortunately it is not the first time that I hear from labels like that. In a comment written by an user from India, you read "obviously Shuna is the winner", almost as if you took for granted Claudio couldn't speak English well.
Thank you kindly for your help and for your support.
Kind regards.

Hi Figaro

Thanks for your comments. I'm sorry that you think that Claudio is not a good representative for Italians. We wanted to show some difficulties that people who are learning English might have when they visit the UK. When we wrote the scripts, we weren't sure what nationalities the actors would be. We felt we were lucky to get Claudio as he is a very good actor (actually, his English is much better than we showed in the video).

I think that the 'obviously' in the comment you refer to is based on the video and not stereotypes.

Thanks again for commenting.

Hi Jack, thanks a lot for your kind reply. I'm finding very helpful and well made the videos and I'm learning lots of new words and phrases of formal and informal context. I'd like to enhance my English; it's hard when you cannot practise language with anyone, but, as I'm interested in that, I'm trying it.
You're welcome for my comment :)

Why do you use the word " with" in the sentence:
- to register with the hotel when you arrive and collect your room key.
And the words: "in" or "at"?
