London Central is our specially developed 10-episode series for learning English and the world’s first video course to include direct interaction with native English speakers. It’s a fun, easy and fast way to learn! The video series follows the exciting adventures of Leo, a young Brazilian man who goes to London to learn English, get a job and find love. Watch as he settles down and adapts to British life, forming relationships with interesting people from around the world. You will grow fond of Leo and his friends, and be on the edge of your seat as they encounter challenges along the way. These realistic situations are similar to those you might encounter in everyday life, so they will prepare you with helpful words and phrases for having natural conversations at a basic level with English speakers.
We have re-launched busuutalk – and it’s now better than ever before!

Here are the key improvements:
An “Away” status, so your friends can still send you busuutalk requests when you have to pop away from your computer for a little while.
Additional unit vocab and phrases, adapted to yourlevel (A1 & A2) will help you to better engage in conversations by introducing you to new words and sentences, and helping you to use them in context.
A list of usefulphrases displayed in the busuutalk chat window will give you ideas for new words and sentences and guide you on how to use them.
The busuu dictionary will help you find vocabulary you have seen in the busuu learning units and give you their translation, so you don’t have to worry if you can’t remember something.
Special character keyboards for all 12 languages and a whole range of cool emoticons that will make your conversations even more fun!
New improved sound and video quality
… and that’s not all! You can also now save your conversation, print it out and review the vocabulary at the end of your chat.
As usual, you can choose to start busuutalkfrom either your home page or from within a unit. Once you have selected a chat partner, a pop-up window will appear and you will be connected. Within the chat window, you can take advantage of all new functions and start improving your language skills with our community of native speakers.
