I think there are some errors with the video.
Firstly, I tried to refresh the browse again and again, but the video still did not appear. After that, I clicked on the youtube link in Kurk comment for zara.jnb91. When I turned back to do tasks, the video appeared unreasonably.

Hello QTN03,

I'm sorry to hear you're having some problems with the video. I've checked it with several devices and browsers and it appears to be functioning correctly. As we haven't had any other reports of problems I can only guess that this is a local problem related to your location or service provider. It sounds like you've found a workaround, however, so hopefully you'll be able to use the site thanks to that.

Hello Peter.
Thank you for your reply. May I ask 1 question about the comments on this website?
I am preparing for an English test next some months, so I need to learn English. I find BC's website is very good to learn. Is it acceptable for the long comments here?
The goal of my comments are both learning vocabulary and practicing writing. I will try to control the long of the comments about 150 - 250 words, respectful and their topics inside the tasks. Honestly, sometime I can not control well them yet.

Hello QTN03

Yes, you are welcome to write comments that long, especially if they are relevant to the topic or discussion question on the page you write them. I'm afraid we aren't able to correct your writing, but if you ever have a question about a specific phrase in your writing, we can help you with that.

I look forward to reading what you have to say.

All the best

When I saw those kids dressing up, I cried. This video made me realize that there is somebody who really needs my help. I hope all children always happy and not feel embarrassed about themselves.

I wish all children be happy. It is very good to see them laughing. Good luck.
