New interactive video course, 'London Central'

Are you learning English? Our specially developed 10-episode series for beginners is 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.

A new way to learn: watch and interact

‘London Central’ is the first of its kind to include direct interaction with native English speakers via our integrated video-chat application, busuutalk.

  • Watch the video to improve your listening comprehension and learn new words, phrases and grammar in a fun, relaxing and interesting way.
  • Test your understanding by answering comprehension and language-related questions based on each episode’s content.
  • Write a short text to practise what you have learnt and send it to native English speakers for corrections and tips for improvement.
  • Interact directly with native English speakers from our global community to try out your new speaking skills based on themes from each episode.

Learn key words and phrases at A1 level. We have specially selected the course’s learning material to include the most important vocabulary and grammar points covered at level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). These include familiar expressions, basic phrases and answers to questions about personal details. The course also touches upon learning material seen in other learning units at A1 level, making it a great revision tool. If you would like to see more of Leo and his friends, stay tuned for more exciting series to help you learn and improve your English at levels A2 to B2.
