Hello GabbyWeng,

I've asked our technical team about this and they said there has recently been a problem with the server that holds our videos for China. They are working on fixing it. Hopefully it should be working soon, but if after a few days you still find that you can't view these videos, please let us know here again.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

In my browsers (Chrome, Mozilla and Explorer) I can't see window for movie. Just white space. Below Instructions part I see Task, Task 1, ... I am using Windows 10, IE 11. Hope to solve my problem soon.

I face the same thing a long time,now can you see video or not?how to solve it?thanks.

Hello stmirjana80,

I've checked the page and the video is working correctly, so there must be a problem with compatibility or else with some kind of restriction (a firewall, perhaps, or some security configuration). I don't think there is anything we can do from our end. Perhaps you could try using a different device to access the site to see if that helps.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

I can't see the place from where can I turn the video on. Where is the problem? I just see Instructions part, Tasks part, Download part

Hello stmirjana80,

There should be a small triangle (a 'Play' button) in the lower left corner of the video. You might have to move your mouse or finger over the lower left corner for it to appear. You might also want to try viewing the page in a different browser – sometimes that will solve problems such as this one. If not, please let us know.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
