  30. well, to admit, guys it's wonderful that you are working from home. because, in the past while you were working in the BBC offices, you were not so creative and diligent like this. Look at your new programmes, you add each one of them subtitles, voices, animations. Working from home suits best for you and it seems that this situatiın has revealed your diligence. Please keep sharing videos like that. Love you from Turkey and all over the world.

  31. Great way for learning English

    I really miss live music very much! And it’s such a great way to learn language, too.

  33. Great job. It is very useful way to get new vocabulary and improve listening skills. Cheers

  34. Good job 👍🏻

  35. Instead of saying corona virus you should say Chinese virus, because the outbreak was in China. For much less the 1918s flu was dubbed "Spanish flu", and as everybody knows the outbreak of the flu wasn't in Spain but in the US (Kansas city). so, why vilifying Spain and not China? I'm really sick of biased mainstream media control…

  36. Your beard has grown all over your face… and your messy hair — Neil, you look really overworked.

  37. The lesson you provide us on English is priceless.Can't thank you enough for your such noble deed.

  38. The schools and colleges hope to getting going by next month.
    I unveiled my university result to my parents.
    (First of all thank you so much for making such videos these are really very helpful thanks a ton, secondly would u please check the examples I've written?)

  39. Thanks for your lesson.
    I often practise using new vocabs after watch each News Review. Therefore, I think it's time to get going.
    My example is right, isn't it?
