  1. Very disappointing ! 
    There is clearly no objecting and no pedagogy in this series… and so no learning… no teacher worthy of that name could have worked on this or with this… 
    Teaching requires an approach, themes and a progression… all missing here…
    And to top it all, the story is embarrassingly stupid !
    What have they done with the old Beeb ?

  2. I have a question for bbclearningenglish. At 00.19, I think I listened Tim talk:" nice queit shy really". I hope bbclearningenglish will answer my question.
    Thanks a lot

  3. Episode 1: At the airport

    Helen: What does Michal look like?

    Tim: Well, he's tall and well built. He's got brown eyes and a shaved head.

    Helen: Is he handsome?

    Tim: Of course he is! He's my cousin.

    Helen: And what's he like? Is he like you too?

    Tim: No, he's quite shy really.

    Helen: Oh look! Is that him?

    Tim: Yeah! Michal! Michal! He's crying. I wonder what's wrong.
