Hello mohamad hossam,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems with the site. It sounds like the problem may well be a compatibility issue. It's necessary to have a Flash-compatible browser and system, and if you are using a mobile device, for example, such as a tablet or phone then this may be a problem. Try accessing the site from a different device, such as a laptop or desktop computer, to see if this solves the problem.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
