Learn English with the British Council’s most popular videos. Practise listening and reading and improve your understanding. Download for free and start learning today!

Watch the British Council’s most popular English language videos in LearnEnglish Videos.

Improve your listening, reading and understanding of general and business English – any time, anywhere. LearnEnglish Videos has lots of special features that make learning English fun.

The videos are downloadable any time, so you can access the content offline. Then when you have finished with an episode, you can delete it to make space on your phone.

LearnEnglish Videos – key features
* New videos are added every week, so you never run out of things to watch. We have videos on a range of topics, from language learning tips to travel, so there is something for everyone.
* Downloadable episodes mean you can watch offline. But don’t worry, when you have done with an episode you can delete it, so it doesn’t use up space on your phone.
* The interactive audio scripts make it easy for you to repeat phrases or new vocabulary if they are hard to hear. Plus, pitch control means you can slow down the video speed if the speaker is a bit difficult to understand.
* Three styles of player – portrait 1 (video and script), portrait 2 (script only) and landscape (video only) – make it easy for you to manage your learning experience.
* Enjoy simple exercises for every episode of content, with a progress screen so you can track your progress.
* Share what you’re watching and listening to through Facebook, Twitter and email with integrated social media sharing. Celebrate your progress with your friends.
