  6. Hi Wiwek,
    I’m afraid this podcast can only be downloaded. It was encoded at the wrong bit rate and so it won’t play properly in the flash player on this page.

    At this point, there are no online activities for BEP 17 and BEP 26. We only started developing online quizzes beginning with BEP 42. We create quizzes for the older lessons when they are featured in an e-book. We will be releasing a new e-book for travel in the next few months and this will include Flash quizzes for all the featured lessons (including BEP 25 and 26).
