BBC Learning English is probably the best website for both learning and teaching English. I find your materials really useful for my students, especially the "News about Britain" section.

Mehrdad, Iran
First of all, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the previledge of being a perpetual visitor of BBC Learning English. It is one of the most authorized sources for every body who is engaged with English as a second language, and as an English teacher who currently is teaching in Iran I have always relied on it. People and Places is of high interest to me where I usually take lots of audio material accompanied with relevant scripts to provide my students with.I have to let you know that my studets really embraced the opportunity of being exposed to authentic English and it fairly motivated them to study more. I really thank you for all effort you put into this 'tall task' of designing this new website and would be grateful if you possibly could offer more and more up-to-date material. Wish you all good luck.

Hi, BBC Learing English Team. At first, I want to thank you very much tour team to support this gorgeous web site, the new look is perfect than ever. Looking forward to new stroies, news, informations...etc. Especially Flatmates series...Love much!

Eva, Slovakia
Your site is very inspiring for all of us who are eager to explore the new ways of learning English. I've been using this site for over 2 years and cannot resist to its helpful content, Face up to phrasals, Words in News, The Flatmates etc., simply great.The only thing I'm not used to yet and find it little bit disturbing is the new font used on the site together with the Learning English Home Page which I considered to be very 'learner friendly'. I was absolutely happy about the previous one which I found very optimal. Maybe it just takes time to accept the change. The content is what really matters here and that is far too good!!! Thanks to all of you.

Joon, Korea
What a tremendously cutting endge site!! First of all, I I really congraduate and appreciate your the newly realeased web site. Above all, I eagely welcome I can download 'World News' mp3 file!! By the virtue of your endeavor, I think it must be so enjoyable compared to previous site that I will be good at English as soon as possible. Anyway, thank you~!!

Mirek, Poland
Thanks for your efforts - you are perfect as always.But I noticed one problem just now browsing the new site. (maybe it crop up earlier)In the section "Meet the team" there are seven names. There're present team's members, I suppose. However, there are people who are reading an archive texts as well. (like me) And for those would be nice to "meet" also team's members who, probably, don't work for BBC now. (e.g. Jackie Dalton - my favourite) Would it be possible to "meet" them at "Meet the team" again.

Rubén Calvo
Hello! I,d like to find " Ten days in Manchester" in Business section. How can I find it in the new site?. Thank you

BBC Learning English replies:
You can find Ten Days in Manchester on the archive carousel, at the bottom of the page in the General and Business English section . If you need to check where any other pages are in the new layout, you can also refer to the site map.

This is a great website for learning, teaching English and the new version is fantastic. I need a little getting used to but it definitely looks more modern! :) When is the professor updating the 'up to date English' section? :(

Omid, Iran
As an English teacher who currently is teaching in Iran,I have always trusted BBC as one the most authorised resources in terms of authentic material for learning English.People and Places is with no doubt among the best sections offered on the site as it provides students with audio files accompanied with relevent scripts which helps them digest the case more comprehensively.At first I took a cynical view of such material as to whether they would work in my classes or not, but then I said 'let the procces begine' and once tried it, well students embraced the opportunity and it fairly worked.I really thank you for all effort you put into this 'tall task',and I would be grateful if you possibly could supply your friends with more up-to-date material.Wish you all luck

Manish, India
This is superb and very attractive. I love this new face of the BBC Learning English. Many many congratulations to the BBC Learning English Team. Thank you very much indeed.

I was studying at British Council when 9/11 incident caused the British Council to close its most of operations in Pakistan and like most of the students I was greatly disappointed. But one day while searching on the internet I came across and ever since I am recommending this site to every one. I am happy that this site has effectively fulfilled the gap. The new site is much improved and shaped very well. I want to congratulate the whole team for making so much effort and proving us with an opportunity to learn English inexpensively. I would further suggest that the site may also be improved from bingers and working people.

Jenny, Malaysia
Congratulation to BBC Learning English!I like this website and like to listen the latest news! Besides, I hope that BBC Learning English can add Sports article, because users can learn English via sports activities like football, basketball, tennis, swimming and more. Last but not least, my suggestion is BBC Learning English add new function, that is users send any essay to BBC and BBC marks or corrects the grammar and vocabulary mistakes for users. Thank you very much and have a nice day!

Tim, Taiwain

Juanma, Spain
I'd really like to watch more videos than now beacuse currently there are a few. It's to difficult to find some differents dialogs by level.In my opinion, it'll be interesting offering the information by levels so it'll be easier.

Begona, Spain
Very visual and easy to surf along. Thanks for being so practical and essential in teaching English.

Scipione, Brazil
The new site is much more clean, easy to navigate. I love BBC Learning English. It helps me to improve my english day by day. Many thanks to all team. Keep on with this fantastic job. Now it is easier for us to print and listen to the stories and news, because all link has pdf and mp3 to do it. Congratulations for all of you, BBC Leaning English Team.

Kayvan, Iran
Hello,first,I do congradulate you on the new site,it's designed nicly.The important point which helps you to strengthen the quality of site is to have information about different dimentions.As an example I've been searching through your site to find some reading texts to help my elementary students,but unfortunately,Ive found nothing.I think you're awared that learning new vocab items whitout reading can not be so useful,otherwise learners can underestand new words by the help of an interesting text.I do need some elemantary reading texts in order to help my students.I think if you design a new part for elemantary students,it can be useful for your site and your viewers. special thank to you and best whishes.

Monica, Italy
Really beautiful and very very useful! Thank you so much!

Daniela, Italy
I am very happy to have the possibiity to learn English with you! thank you very much

Naheed, Pakistan
I want to say one more thing about 'The flatmates' that I liked its old view which I last visited yesterday. To listen to the audio it used to open realplayer but now it plays on the page which I think takes a little longer to recieve bites to play it.

Ricardo Anselmo, Brazil
I enjoy the new website. Thanks to offer us an opportunity to learn english!

Sunil Pathiraja, Sri Lanka
I have been using BBC Learning English to teach English for the last five or six years. My teaching is mostly on line now and I can depend on your site to give my students a feel about standard British English. I hope the new look and features will make the site more useful.All the best ..!Sunil Pathiraja

Hicham, Morocco
I like you new site bbc you are the best.

Naheed, Pakistan
I like the new look of the new site. All the links are easily accessible so speaking of the layout, it's handy. I have a small suggestion that there should be a space for something like 'word of the day' and 'daily colloquial expression' and stuff like that.

Sonja, Germany
I'm a beginner in English learning. I hope i can improve my english skills with the new site.

Knipperdolling, Germany
Congratulations! Your new pages look great. Now I'm waiting for the next parts of "up-to-date", "The teacher" and - above all - "How to ...".By the way, I'm still missing the former "BBC Learning English e-mail group".RegardsKnipperdolling

Dragunskis, Brazil
I´ve liked the new site...old site I also liked.I think that some podcasts of differents situations can help us better.Best whishes!

I find this site very intersting to learn english and more .i visit this site daily it's very rich. About the new site i find more useful and attractive. Well i have an IELTS test in march or april ,i prepare from this site ,wish me a good luck thanks

Marisela, Venezuela
Well, better, impossible. Congratulations. I listen to the audios and so on everyday in my mp3 and I've improved a lot, I think getting to download others features such as Words in the news will be better for me. thinks. Why not publich others episodes of funky phrases, grammar challenge, to make available the audios from The Teacher apart from the video just available, and the funky phrasals has audios which can't be played on mp3. oh wonderful the flatmates it was a big surprise to meet Helen, Alice, Khalid and Tim just as they are. Well, again congratulations all of you

Kazimierz, Poland
Dear Sir/Madam,Thank you very much for your English teaching service. I am happy to listen and read your lessons and have possibility to get contact with live British language.I would like to share my impressions about new appearance of the Website. It is nice, but it is a pity, that the windows of Listen are not independent from the Scripts. I solve this inconvenience by copying the Script to the Word sheet or open the site twice simultaneously.However, independent window of Listen would allow to stop listening and repeat it when necessary to hear again the phrase without breaking watching the script. Furthermore, for that purpose large windows of Listen would be more useful.Yours faithfully,Kazimierz .

BBC Learning English replies:
Thanks for your feedback Kaz. We welcome all comments, and we'll do our best to take them into consideration for any future changes to the website. If you need to check where any pages are in the new layout, you can refer to the site map.

Ana, Spain
I want to thank you for the new changes. I had problems before with the listening files. Now is fantastic i can use it from any computer. Well done.

Marisela, Venezuela
Well, I can't say anything about the look or what I like and not. That's because I think I need time to actually see clearly what are the differences and the advantages or disavantages. I need to get used to this new look. bye

Amib , Iran
Well, i think this version is so brilliant. i love it.thank you for this changing

Augusto Jose Dias, Brazil

Wafa, Tunisia

Folicaldi Daniele, Italy
For me, Your site is be the best way to learn and improve english and the new arrangment is the best of the best ! A BIG EMBRACE FROM ITALYTHANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!!

Kisang Kim, Korea
I've been waiting for the audio for Words in the news for a long time, because listening to the news is the best way for you to improve your English and keep up with up-to-date news at the same time. I'm really happy that I can listent to the Words in the News using my ipod. My favorite programs are Business English, Insight, and 6 minute Englis. As I'm a office worker, Business English is a great help, and I acquire a lot of casual expressions from 6 minute Enlish, the length of which is appropriately short so I can easily focus on. Moreover I can improve my knowledge through Insight. I think my English level is intermediate, and I can understand your various dialogs with the help of friendly and detailed explanation, although it's not 100%. Anyway, the point is that your material is excellent!If you publish a book using the materials like Business English and 6 minute English, I'm willing to pay for it. There are not much opportunities to meet British and listen to British accenct in Korea except British council. I've taken an IELTS class at BC at weekends, but I've never recognized the existence of your site. Very few people know the existence of your site in Korea. If you publish a book, I'm sure the chance to promote your site will rapidly increase. Finally, your site helps me save my money on English Education. I really appreciate your cite.I hope your site will keep moving forward and give many chances to as many people as possible.

Ewa, Poland
Love bbc learinng English!!!! Many thanks for all people working on this website. I'm very appreciate. New layout is ok. I like: keep ur English up to dates, talk about English, face up the phrasals, news about Brittan. Very helpful is 'ask about English', pronunciation tips and business English and how to ... Look forward to see more about business language, etc. All the best,

Dumitru Florea, United States

I am very excited about the new look of BBC Learning English.Since BBC Learning English was launched, I have been visiting the site regularly and found many interesting things. BBC Learning English has helped me a lot in my English.The new site makes navigating a lot easier and finding stuff more quickly. It really helps irrespective of whether you are familiar with the old site or you are a beginner. I think in the future BBC Learning English should hold competitions for learners from around the world.

HaEun, Korea
Wow! What a wonderful new site!It's very nice. Especially, I can find each weekday features easily and will enjoy BBC Learning English Programme.Thank you always!

Michele, Italy
The new website looks more enjoyable, and more downloadings means more freedom of learning. As for the content, I think that the grammar section should be more structured, as at the moment, it seems to be focused on various topics, here and there, without showing a consistent approach. So, a little bit of attention to this aspect, would mean a better learning for us.Anyway, thanks a lot for yr job. It gives a great chance to the non-speaking English world.

Fernando Ardanese, Roma, Italy
the new site is very friendly and I hope it will be very usefull for learning english like the old one ... great BBC for people like me who wants to learn english!

Djahida, Algeria
I have nothing to say axcept encouraging you for the change. I would like also to thank you for the effort you always make. Thank a lot.
