Hi medo77. Thanks for reporting the problem. I've just tried it, and the mp3 plays ok for me. Downloading also works ok. Perhaps there was a temporary problem but it seems to be working again now.

Could you try it again and let us know if it still doesn't work? You can also try using a different web browser - sometimes that fixes the problem.

I don't know especially about human body but i can google it. I know only that we have huge number of bacteria in our body. This count is impossible to imagine. Of course it's not good but in some animals bacteria are ok because of digest food.

My name is Izaro. I am named after an island on the Basque Coast. It is a very beautiful special place. I think I am lucky to have my name.

I had some idea about bacteria and their function in our body, for example the drugs in the laboratory are made of bacteria for attack sickness

I don't know anything about human body because I haven't studied biology yet.

Seriously I got it all correct without even listening to the audio. I mean we already learned this in biology.

Did you know that 75 percent of your body is made up of water, but did you know that 80 percent of your brain is also water?

Our heart beats around 100,00 times every day or about 30 million times in a year.

I don't know much about my body. I don't know that the bacteria have all this. And I only knew that the skin of my body die all days.

Is interesting the world of bacteria. We did not really know that we had a lot of bacteria that are useful to the human body. I have also read about the bacteria that make the sweat of the body does not smell badly. Also the mites that eat the dead cells is interesting.

I did not imagine that so many bacteria could live in my body. But if they are good then quit your job. It was very interesting to know that without bacteria we could die. I think there are things we should not know and just ignore them. I can not imagine a world without bacteria.

Hi Snokis! Good point, you're right. And thanks to you I've just read a bit about quarks and atoms to help me understand the topic better! :) I understand that since it's so difficult to split (= divide) an atom, it's sometimes referred to as as the smallest component of an element. In fact, it's the smallest component of an element that has the chemical properties of that element. Is that right? Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

There are bacteria that do not just harm to human beings, there are also others that may be used for personal gain

bacteria are prokaryotes because they not have their well-defined organelles and not all bad for humans.
