This is English conversation as it really happens in the UK - totally natural and not simplified, changed or made artificial to help English students.
This is not the kind of recording that you get in an English textbook (actors reading artificially from a script in an unnatural way).
You can listen to English as if you were living in England and were having a conversation with friends that are native speakers of English.
