    Very difficult to pronunciate jajaja and speaking about these persons I don't agree with her to make Harry separate from his family Megan bad person. It's my personal opinion 😌😌😌

  40. Who will pay the bill 😃

  41. As long as they don’t need to use Canadian tax to support their living I don’t care where they live, they would probably divorce in 3 years anyway.


  43. I just love how they know shrewd it's an unusual word and they constantly repeat it in order to the audience to get familiar with it.
    Well done BBC Learning English team.

  44. The new style of news review is awesome ! Pretty like a quality talk show or a conversation channel. Really like it. Thanks BBC Learning English !
    Dan and Catherine are the best😀

  45. Really love this session. Learn new words and how to use it in various situations.

  46. I love this video clip. Both of you are good performers and good duos.

  47. Hello Dan and Catherine. I like following your news review because it's a great opportunity to practice English especially my listening and speaking abilities. Congratulations for your talk show version. Bye.

  48. People do not understand one thing,  mixed race marriages are most vulnerable.
    These people must be left alone. I am talking from my own experience. Next a
    person never  experiences if not in the
    same shoes. Press first must think and ask what they write. Any writing or
    verbal or attack can change life completely. I wish  them all the best.

  49. This is an exhilarating setting for News Review 🙂 cuz of its catchy content and visualization. On top of that, it yields a sense of a daily life ^^
