    Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a well-known British fairy tale. Alice tells us the story and then we study some of the language. You'll meet a young girl and three bears and you'll hear which bowl of porridge is too hot, which bed is comfortable enough, and why Goldilocks is very scared!

    How hard is it to find a place to live?

    11 Feb 2015

    Finding a place to live can be very difficult for young people. And in London it's almost impossible for some. One idea is to get elderly people to move to smaller houses to make room for younger people who need somewhere to live. Read an article to find out more and learn a pronunciation tip with Alice.

    Problems at home and at work

    12 Feb 2015

    We often use the words very, too, and enough to talk about problems - when things are too difficult or when we don't have enough time. In this session, you're going to hear Alice and Neil talking about their problems.

    Then we want to hear from you, but not about your problems - tell us about fairy tales from your country. Try to use verytoo and enough correctly!
