Learn about the UK political system & elections

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
In this lesson I will explain a little about how the UK political system works, and introduce you to some of the vocabulary. You'll learn about the major parties, local councils, constituencies, and more. So, welcome to the unpredictable world of UK politics! This is a great lesson to help you understand the news, even if you don't live in the UK. Listening to British news is a great way to practise your English, and understanding what they are talking about will really help! When I made this video in early 2017, I thought that the next UK General Election would not happen until 2020 -- how wrong I was! So here is the video, just a few days ahead of a surprise General Election in June 2017.

She remained exceptionally neutral, I appreciate that very much
Unlike many other educators who put a slant on things according to the ideology they've fallen victim to

So kudos for not doing that

Thank you for being so unbiased. It's so much easier to generate your own opinions when you're not being fed bias information.

Dear Ms. Gill,

Thank you very much. For English learners like me, who are from different part of the world, it would be highly beneficial for us to learn English as well as UK's system. In this sense, this video is higly informative.

I’m so thankful for this, I’m sixteen so I will be able to vote in two years, but schools seem to forget that we need to learn politics. Most people my age have no clue on politics. This should be shown in all schools!

When I saw this beautiful old lady standing next to the board ... I was really underestimating this video (with all the use of technology in videos now days)...
But she is just what I needed! Very well structured, good pace, simple...
Thank you!

I really like how Jill pronounced "mayor." Jill seems "not too smiley" at this video, little strange perhaps due to the topic...
