Fourteen episodes from the 1970s sitcom about the comedy exploits of a mixed-race adult education language class. In 'The First Lesson' teacher Jeremy Brown (Barry Evans) arrives for his first day at the Southbank College of Further Education eager to spread the joy of knowledge - then he meets his students. 'An Inspector Calls' has Jeremy mistake the school inspector for a student and then offend his wife into the bargain. 'A Fate Worse than Death' finds Ranjeet (Albert Moses) asking for help when he resolves to escape the clutches of his bride-to-be. 'All Through the Night' sees the class get locked in the classroom after hours and prepare for a long night together. In 'The Best Things in Life' Jamlla (Jamila Massey) gets detained by the police for shoplifting, but her classmates soon come to the rescue. 'Come Back All is Forgiven' has a number of different class members all buy teacher Jeremy the same present for his birthday. 'The Cheating Game' sees the students indulge in a little bit of underhand activity in order to save their class from getting cancelled. 'Better to Have Loved and Lost' finds Ali (Dino Shafeek) and Chung (Pik Sen Lim) planning to get married, even though Ali already has a wife! In 'Hello Sailor' Jeremy tries to help a Russian sailor (Ray Marioni) defect to the West, but things get complicated when the sailor's captain (Dave King) falls for school principal Miss Courtney (Zara Nutley). 'A Point of Honour' has Danielle (Francoise Pascal) looking for a stand-in fiancé so that she might protect her honour. 'The Examination' finds the whole gang in deep water after Jeremy gets into a pub argument with the examiner. In 'All Present If Not Correct' the start of new term sees all the regular faces return after failing their exams. 'Queen for a Day' has Miss Courtney responding to news of a royal visit by inviting the class to wear their national costumes for a day. Finally, 'Brief Re-Encounter' sees the class save Miss Courtney from the romantic and financial clutches of a devious con-man.

Mind your language is the best ever comedy series I ever seen on TV. There is humour in every single word and couldn't stop laughing from begining to the end. I have watched the series over and over again and never get fed up. Recently I met Albert Moses ( Ranjeet Singh) on a lunch and had a good laugh too. It is a shame the series was banned in the UK on a racial issue but being an asian myself this is just a comedy nothing to do with racism. I highly recommend to watch the whole series and UK has still not produced a comedy series better than this.

This is one of the funniest series ever commited to video. I remembered watching this as a kid and seeing my dad collapse off his seat with laughter. I decided to buy the series on dvd for my dad as a Christmas present, but I was tempted to watch an episode. Oh deary me! The jokes come thick and fast, they are politically incorrect, incorrect, rude, but, you know what, it's how I remember what life was like at that time. There were people like Ali (the best character in the series) everywhere, these weren't stereotypes -it was partly a reflection on life. That was why it was and is so achingly funny. I'm asian, and I don't find anything to take offence in Mind Your Language, in fact I think the people who the series was parodying find it the funniest. For the record I bought my dad a clock for christmas, i kept the dvds, mind you he can borrow them, but only one at a time.
(PS the episodes are great if you have people over who never seen or even heard about 'Mind Your Own Language", it will really kill them, people beg me to borrow them).
(PPS Thanks Amazon)

this classic sitcom has sadly been crucified by the politically correct brigade (the evil empire of the late 20th century). but it is surely comedy in its purest form, only the purists find it offensive. not to themselves, but people of other cultures. yet people of other cultures find this funny, why? because it IS funny - period. we must be able to laugh at everything that makes us different, not feel inferior, or indeed superior. we all all human with different ways of approaching the same solution. there is nothing offensive or racist here. some of the characters and indeed comedy is inspired. in a word - timeless.

The series was run twice on Kenyan National Tv, in 1980 and a repeat in 1988. I remember it was a 'must watch' and even once got a favourable mention from our then President Daniel Arap Moi. Apparently he was a fan too. The phrase...a thousand apologies... became popular as a result of the series. I had it on video tape (recorded from the TV transmissions) but the quality of picture and sound became poor over time.
I stumbled on the DVD set by pure chance when, out of curiosity, I did a search on Google.com Now that I have the DVD set I'm enjoying the very hilarious series all over again. I highly recommend it for anyone who is seeking comic relief.

This was one of those rare comedies that was actually funny. I was but a child when this was originally shown in the early 80s but I can still remember how much I looked forward to Saturday nights because I knew I was in for a hilarious treat.
The show was about an English teacher trying without much success to teach the English language to a group of foreigners from different countries. The characters were stereotypes and the comments they came up with did get predictable as the series progressed but the tickle factor never waned.
I can only assume that "political correctness" was behind the axing of the show after only two seasons for it could have gone on for so much longer.
