  2. When Neil or Catherine says "clik the link below", I'm the happiest person in the world

  3. I bet there are better choices for News Review series… For educational reasons it's still good material as any other because we learn new words/phrases, etc. but looking into some other people's lives… meh…

    How importance she is, only a boop shower.

  9. 'Call it quits ' reminds me of another
    phrase ,'call it a day'. It's interesting that it is not days but a day.

  10. The ranting part about Neil was quite funny😀 now I won't forget what it means to rant

    Hello to both of you
    Considering how long you have been talking to us about it, I would allow myself to ask Neil to elaborate about "the English for cats". It would be very appreciated, Thanks a lot.

    If BBC decides to call it quits News Review I will become a ranter.

  14. Where are the subtitles ?

  15. Rants…dilapidated roads made people to go on rants

  16. Flamboyant faces of our BBC teachers

  17. Catherine always wears gold earing..I am gonna file for her expensive earing which covet me🤣

  18. Files for….we have filed for extension of narrow road

  19. I like Neil, maybe i am too superficial, he is so handsome

  20. I don't call it quits from watching bbc news review

  21. Great job you are doing to teach us English

  22. Neil….you look like the fighter knights in Game of throne series.
    You and Catherine are the best for this programme

  23. And so they'll soon become the very legendary ……… exes ,

  24. My favorite couple. Hugs from Brazil

  25. File a lawsuit

  26. Amazing content! I love this programme. Keep it up, I was wondering the English for cats was real or you guys were just joking?

  27. That's it: they are so awesome, impressive heroes and heroines on the stage, in clips, on TV etc…but they appear to be weak and irresponsible enough to bear marriage and solve its inevitable issues like normal humans. Thus, they are fake stars and their fame and power are just based on illusion and blindness of society.

  28. congratulations BBC News for excelllent lessons and important suport to development of English language around the world
