And our main focus this month is on renting a flat. Learn some useful words and expressions to talk about the apartment, and listen to a dialogue on the topic.Plus, Dr Fingers is here to teach you all about collective nouns, and to help you learn some useful words to talk about noises.
In our humour section, you'll enjoy our Funny Product Labels article with some examples of real but ridiculous instructions that you can find on popular products. Plus, there's some cowboy humour in our article Things We've Learnt from Westerns, and you can learn three different ways of saying the same thing in our Dictionary of Slang.
This month, we're also looking at the best and worst of Britain in our article called Britain Unveiled, and you can listen to some songs about London in our Songs of London article.
