  16. I'm looking for a speaking partner to practice English. I wonder if there's anyone wanting to improve speaking English. Let me know.

  17. I'm very disappointed with the topic you chose. It's supposed that BBC news reports reflect the most important events in the world and after one month the Final match of the Football l World Cup occurred. Millions of people were watching this increíble match and you choose this topic? My husband said to me Neil loves football for sure he's gonna choose the final but not. We usually watch BBC news reports every Thursday but he felt so disappointed that he refuses to see it.

  18. Beth looks so beautiful. 🙂

  19. 👍👍👏👏😸

  20. Get rid of sth= tired
    gobbling : eating food fast, consume food rapidly
    humble = lowly = modest

  21. I love watching this program because it is very helpful.

    I was thinking.
    Maybe this HUMBLE worm could become in a monstrous plague once they had finished with it GOBBLING activity of eating plastic garbage. Destroying all the plastic stuff that could find.
    Becoming all these worms from the LOWLY possition to the highest possition in the food chain…😱

  33. Wow this is really exciting news. It could be a solution to a very serious issue.
