Neil and Sian,You are the best presenters that I have ever seen. You both make my day. I can't live without Six minute English and News Review literally. I can't imagine spending my day without listening to Neil, Rob, Sam, Gorgina or Sian. Thanks for your overwhelming efforts.

You're IN your studio. At last! But Boris IS and always WAS in his office. Even under covid restrictions he had a party there on the occasion of his birthday. It was really like DEAD MAN WALKING along the office corridors

John Moyes

15.06.22 в 11:22

It was much better when there were two example contexts for each piece of vocabulary. One for each is far too limiting.

I think in Chinese dead man walking means 穷途末路。

New idiom: draw a line under

By the way, I thought we would draw a line under the pandemic soon, but now, here in my city - Belo Horizonte (brazil) - we're being forced to wear masks again due to the surge in case numbers


14.06.22 в 18:37

finally your back


14.06.22 в 17:36

Boris Johnson never contanue to be dead walker, he can decribe new scenario himself.


14.06.22 в 16:42

Wow! What a great channel I have encountered! Thank you so much for your work, and please keep it up. I hope for more videos like this in the future.


14.06.22 в 10:16

Boris Johnson, trap your opponents,put them into prison.Make UK great again .


14.06.22 в 10:15

Boris Johnson, crush your opponents,crush them!


14.06.22 в 10:14

I felt that Boris Johnson has no power at all,unlike Chinese president. It's difficult to imagine a supervised prime minister by police.


14.06.22 в 10:12

Boris Johnson should change the political system and take the position as an emperor, put his opponents into prison.I recommend Boris Johnson could learn from China.

Hi BBC learning English Team, glad to see you guys returning to the BBC studio. It is happy to see you make some changes to the programm. The time length of explanation of each word became short, not sure whether or not it is a good change. Personally, I would prefer the way you explained before, you will tell us the clarification, when and how to use the words or phrases and their alternatives.

Ambar Mondal

13.06.22 в 13:38

I see you've changed how you present the headlines. I liked the new one, but I preferred the actual snapshots of the webpage.
Great to see you back at the studio again. Cheers!

13.06.22 в 11:54

I loved watching you guys in the studio. this new format is very good. but I prefer longer videos, with more dialogue and informality.

What a mess the UK is in. Never mind the no confidenace in parliment, most of the UK voting public have zero confidence in The conservative party. Its like watching the Muppet Show when you see this lot on TV: Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak, Nadhim Zahawi, Sajid Javid, Grant Shapps, Dominque Raab, Nadine Dorries, Priti Patel, Liz Truss, Ben wallace.
And they are still taking over £1.5million from Russian doners such as Lubov Chernukhi and Alexander Temerko since the ukraine war began, so where are the sanctions when it comes to donating money to the dirty conservtive party --

James Michael Keane

13.06.22 в 04:43

Perhaps if Boris stopped being a follower and or stooge to the US, and a leader to the people here in the UK. Praise and Prosperity with plenty outside of the EU would follow. There is nothing worse than a leader who is led up the garden path, and this garden is full of weeds that strangle the flowers of growth and prosperity of the good trying to survive from day to day. Are not these actions repeating themselves once again? Learn from the 1st Roman empire. Come-on Boris be a leader, and love ALL your neighbour's..


13.06.22 в 02:42

Wow! New Teaching style. However I do prefer the old one regard to the way explain vocabulary and longer time.

A habitual LIAR is not a fit person to manage anyone let alone our country.


09.06.22 в 06:38

There are staff shortages everywhere, employees going on strike, companies not being run very well & non compliance with our new woke society. This includes govt.
There are no such problems within the bbc, perhaps they should be the role model for the whole country & set the standards, for personal dept. boardrooms.

OMG I love the new format (back to the studio) btw Neil looks younger.


09.06.22 в 02:09

The background is so cool!! But, it would be much better if the video time can resume to around 10 minutes and add back the subtitle. Thank you so much BBC Learning English Team^^


09.06.22 в 01:40

Welcome back to the studio.The show is only five minutes long,I want 10mintes or more.

Western, UK media promoting Ukrainian propaganda. Just makes me Lol. Public in the west are sick of Zelensky ranting - Just listen to him, his rantings are become incoherent.

Zelensky and Ukraine leadership is living in a fantasy land, if they think they will Win against Russia army. !
US -NATO dream of weakening Russia and regime change in Moscow has melted away into Washington DC sewer system, where UK Liz Truss is sitting down for her instructions from senile Biden.
Biden is still talking about he wants Putin out - regime change now. !! Russian people are not stupid. !!

Hi good people , I am so pleased to see you all toghter again (reunited).

The new look of the studio is amazing the team as well.

However, i have a request stying there for agaes!!

I am everyday listener so if i get the transcript for the podacst i will be appreciative.

Thanks a lot

Hello Everyone
I used to hear from you all locked up in your own homes.
I'm glad this whole mess is over.
By the way, I hope your next videos will be as long as before. This one was too fast, it doesn't allow us to improve our skills. Thank you very much for taking my request into account


08.06.22 в 19:59

This is a great improvement. clear and short! I stopped watching News Review because it was dragged for too long explaining very simple words or phrases. especially the spelling each word out is not necessary. I'm very happy to see presenters in full picture. They look gorgeous. Love you both Neil and Sian!

Shaza Kaskas

08.06.22 в 19:48

Thanks for your efforts and finally go back to the studio. I can't believe it, but could you add more explanations and examples please. In my opinion, the old videos were better understanding, We would be so happy to learn from you. We won't be bored at all


08.06.22 в 19:47

Love this new concept
