thanks you for your answer, i use the google chrome the last Version --69.0.3497.100 (Build officiel) (64 bits)-- and the timezone of my computer is GMT+1 it's well settled

Hi englishExercice,

I understand that you can see the video now -- is that right? I hope so, but if not, please let me know and I'll see what I can find out.

It would also be a good idea to try different browsers and/or devices to see if it works there.

All the best,

I really can't understand why you have to put subtitles on the dialogue. We then miss the important opportunity to practice the most important skill, listening. Modern pedagogies stress that we should always listen first, without subtitles and try to get the most we can, before going to transcripts. Thank you

Hello nelsonfranca,

Modern methodology is rather more flexible than that. Subtitles can be a very useful tool in some situations.

Most of our videos do not have subtitles and if you prefer not to see the text then you will have many videos to choose from. I hope you find them helpful.

It is an interesting video in order to show a real situation in the public transport.
Nevertheless in my opinion, the commuter would show more exciting

I wanted to write should


i like travelling by yhe train.Last year I lost my train to airport because the first train was on delay

hello , can i say.... (What’s problem has Makayla had?) ,rather than this (What problem has Makayla had?)

Hello eldi,

No, I'm afraid that's not a correct sentence. "What problem' needs to be together. It means something similar to 'Which problem'.
