Stephen and Ashlie realise they have quite similar ideas about what their Mum would like, but Ashlie soon gets distracted from the task in hand!


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the transcript at any time.





Sound of vedio is low

Hi, why i can't see the video?

Hello b.n7,

I've checked the video and see no problems. I'd suggest that you try viewing this page using a different web browser or different device. That should solve the problem, but if not, please let us know what browser and browser version you're using so that we can follow up.

All the best,

Hi Kirk!
Sir I had the same problem without being signed in. But when I signed in, the problem solved. Sometimes, I suppose, it happens when not log in.
Sorry Sir, a little from the related topic, I ask you that 'What's the difference between 'sign in' and log in'? Are they same things?

Hello Akbar Safi,

'Log in' is used only in the context of computer systems. 'Sign in' can be used in other contexts as well, such as in a hotel or in a library.


Best wishes,

Thank you Sir!

Hi Kirk,

I tried in different browser(Google Chrome) as per your suggestion but it's still not showing.
Why it's like that? After preparation,directly reach to Task 1.No more video there. Please help.


I have checked the page and the video is working correctly. The problem therefore must be a local issue, which means there are several possibilities.

It is possible that your browser settings do not allow the content to run. Another possible problem is your security settings, such as the use of a firewall, which can block certain content. A third thing to consider is your hardware. Some mobile devices (phones and tablets) have problems with certain media, so trying a different device - a desktop or laptop - might be a good idea. Finally, some internet service providers block certain content, as do the legal systems in some countries.

Unfortunately, there is no way for us to help you with any of the above as they are all local issues. We can check whether the material on our site is working correctly, and we have done this, but we cannot check your local configurations and devices.

I hope you can solve the problem.


Best wishes,
