Hello Aktham Youssef

I'm sorry that the video doesn't work well for you. Could you please tell us more about the problems you're having? Are you able to see other videos on our site, for example in the Video zone or Starting Out?

Sorry! i can't hear well.

The most usual way that I use to ask some one repeat a sentence is ' please repeat' or ' Sorry I can't understand you' or I say 'what?'

I had never heard the first one!

It is great but i got a chance to attend the class here in Addis Ababa,Ethiopia. when i took listening assessment a bit different from this.

It's really so nice topic.

Thanks so much!

I am sorry to say that I cannot watch your video here since I am located in China. What a pity!
