BBC's Word on the Street

BBC has produced a series of videos for learners of English called Word on the Street. What makes it interesting and different compared to older series is the fact that the language presented is everyday, natural English, spoken in a variety of accents. Learners are also given the chance to travel around England, like Oxford and Blackpool, and discover how young people live there. Each short video explores a different topic like music, art, sports etc and analyses different grammatical phenomena. Extracts from these videos together with online comprehension tasks can be found on
