I haven't been to any of these yet, but I know that these are the best in the UK and in the world to visit. I wish I would have a trip to those places.
At the moment, I'd like to take a tour in Kyoto, Japan’s most beautiful city and world-famous for its refined culture, dining, and charm of rural Japan. Here has sublime Zen gardens, mysterious Buddhist temples, colorful Shinto shrines, graceful geisha.
During spring, we'll experience the city with a backdrop of blooming cherry blossoms. And fall comes with warm hues of red, orange, and yellow from the maple trees that match perfectly with the warm-colored temples. The fact is, Kyoto is the most rewarding city in Japan and a place all travelers should visit at least once in their lives.

I have never been to these places, the place I would like to visit is Japan since it is a country that I have wanted to visit to know where my culture was born and to be able to meet the creators of my culture and my favorite anime.

It was a very pleasant subject, since London has always caught my attention, for various reasons, one in particular, my favorite boy band. Thanks to this audio, it allowed me to travel through my imagination to tourist places in this beautiful city. I learned interesting things and managed to expand my vocabulary. It is in my plans to visit London someday.

I really want to visit Japan, even if I can just explore it once in my life. There are so many interesting things in Japan, such as kimonos, sushi, mochi, ramen, anime... Or I can visit the amazing Tokyo Skytree, the historical Tokyo Imperial Palace or the Ramen Museum. But the enormous problem here is that I can't speak and write anything in Japanese!

I have never been to these places but my dream is visiting China. Because it's a big country, with a lot of handsome boys and pretty girls. I have learned a bit Chinese, so I think the community isn't too hard. Besides, China has lots of places to visit and of course, there are yummy foods and drinks, too. Especially, milk tea : >

Hi AGoodEnglishLearner! They are both correct, and in most situations you can use either one. But there is a slight difference in meaning. 

  • on the tour = during the tour
  • in the tour = included in the tour / as a part of the tour

Hi meomeomeo. You're right, Big Ben is under repair at the moment. I heard it's going to take about four years before it sounds again. So, look out for any news about how the repairs are going. :)

Yes. I have been to London. The Big Ben and Westminster Eye were the real highlights according to me. I have also been to Oxford, though not for study, and I have seen Buckingham Palace too. Now Big Ben will be renovated. I would like to go to the United Kingdom again as I have not seen the countryside. I would like to go to Northern Ireland too. I have been told it is a beautiful place.

Yes I have. I haven't been to the London Eye, or to Madam Tussaud's museum but I 've been to the other places, like Tower Bridge and Big Ben. I'd like to visit New York City because I'd like to go up the Statue of Liberty.

No, I haven't, unfortunately. I would like to visit Madrid city and Buenos Aires city too. I would like to visit Madrid because I have been listening a lot of the big fountains and streets there. In my view, I read that Buenos Aires city has a lot of restaurants and tours to enjoy in family.

Hi anwar2000,
The difference between famous people and celebrities  -  when you speak of celebrities you think about people that are on the television or maybe film stars. Whereas famous people can be television or film stars but can also be known for other things such as being a president, a painter or an inventor etc.
For your second question, wax is the substance that makes a candle.
I hope this helps ... best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Teens Team)
