A Greek Orthodox Church

This month find out about:

Women's Voices
This week we investigate the sound of women's voices. Do men usually ignore women's voices? How can women speak in a way that gives them more authority and makes people listen to what they have to say?

Greek Easter
Most of us in Britain celebrated Easter last weekend - the 15th and 16th of April. We had bank holidays, when most people didn't go to work. Many gave each other chocolate Easter eggs and special church services took place.

At the Doctor's
As part of this week's focus on health, we're looking at English that you might use when you visit the doctor. What should you say to the doctor when you don't feel well?

Keeping Fit
Friday April 7th, is World Health Day, a day for raising awareness of health issues around the world. In this programme Callum uncovers what BBC Learning English staff do to keep fit and talks to a man who goes to the gym every day, gym manager Rodney Mitchell.
