Hello! Could you please tell me the right way to answer when somebody meet you saying: "Nice to meet you". Is it right "Me too"? Thank you very much.

Hello lellablu,

'Nice to meet you too' or 'You too' or 'Thanks, you too' are probably the most common ways to reply, though there are certainly others. 'Me too' doesn't follow well here because it implies a subject 'I' - there is no such subject in the expression.

Good luck!

I have been watching videos on this site (brit. council) for more than two years on my pc. But recently, a few days back all the videos from your site stopped playing and the sign 'invalid source' is displayed. I can watch other videos like youtube etc. I have saved the site on the favorite bar, I used to click the icon to get direct access to the site. The site opens but videos are not displaying. I don't know what to do. I have improved my English a lot by watching brit. council videos.

Hello Ningappa,

Does this error message give you any other details? If so, please let us know so that we can follow this up. It'd also be useful to know what operating system and browser version you're using.

In the meantime, I'd suggest you try a couple of things. First, update your Flash player. Very often this will fix the problem. You could also try reloading the page and/or viewing it in different browsers.

I'm sure we can help you fix this problem in one way or another, and thanks for letting us know that you find the videos useful.

Best wishes,

As per your suggestions I updated the flash player then I got my problem corrected. I am extremely sorry for bothering you. I felt as if I lost everything so I wrote on this comments section for a solution. Now I can watch the videos. Thanks for taking care about my problem.

Hello Ningappa,

I'm glad that worked for you! Thanks for letting us know.

Thak you very much for taking so much care about my problem. The problem still persists. My pc works on window 7 and I usually use google as the browser. As per you suggestions I used google chrome, I didn't face any problem in watching the videos of brit. council. This clearly shows that I have something wrong with my google browser. (With the error message, something appeared, but for only a second, so I could not read it. That message did not appear again.) As an Indian I always like British english. Your videos have helped me to improve my English and for that I am always thankful to you.

Hello Ningappa Chandapure,

I've just checked the video and it appears to be working fine. I see that you said 'now' in your comment - does this mean that the video was working before, and has just stopped recently? If so, it may be a temporary problem. Do you have problems with other videos on the site (such as this one, for example), or just this one?

Please let us know if you are still having problems with this. If so, please also let us know what device you are using to access the site. The videos require Flash-compatibility and some devices, such as some mobile devices, do not have this.

Best wishes,
