I have a back pain as if there are no cartilages in that area. I don't feel the flexibility nor agile anymore due to no exercise

Mostafa Al-Ghurabi

There is no such predator in the world like the humans. They wage wars on each other, killing in cold blood, the main reason of poverty and hunger...etc
Every bad feature, which also can be inherited from generation to other ones, you find it in humans. By depicting animals as they are bad and evil creatures is something could be further from the truth as they are not superior as human beings who have the ability to use their brains instead of instincts, though, they use their abilities for bad deeds which make them the worst creature to be found on this earth. Ask yourself how many humans killed their own kinds because they had grudge on each other for trivial reasons!

I usually listen to BBC 6 MINUTES ENGLISH on Spotify, google podcast. But for now, It's impossible playing your program on both platforms. I've tried to access to your website which I used to use a lot, but it's still the case. Hope that It'll be fixed soon.

I'm a Taiwanese high school student. Honestly,my English is not very good. My English test scores are often lower than other students. Therefore,I was frustrated and didn't like to learn English before.
  However, I love English now. Many videos from BBC Learning English are very helpful and interesting. I hope I can improve my English level and communicate with people fluently in English someday.Thanks to BBC Learning English.

I don't think sharks are evil. But I'd still be careful around them because they're predators and can easily mistake a surfer for fish.
What humans do to sharks is just cruel and unnecessary because there's absolutely no need for shark fins.
Interesting topic, thank you for the lesson :)
