Hello infinity001,

I'm afraid I don't have that information. In any case, nearly all of the music used in our videos was written and recorded especially for the videos, so I doubt you could find a recording of it even if I were able to tell you the name of the song. Sorry!

All the best,

Hi Kirk, thank you for your answer, and of course I understand that you cannot answer immediately, so thank you again. I´ll try reinstalling Adobe Flash Player or use Chrome instead. In the meantime I have to watch the videos on youtube, which still works!
Thank you for all the excellent material for English learners on your website!

Hi guys from Br. council, I was pleading you for help several times, bec. I´m not able to watch the videos any more. I wrote to you yesterday, but nobody seemed to notice my plea. I can´t work with your material any more, and I give several courses. I have to rearrange everything or to find a new website, but this seems to be impossible. I tried your suggestions about reloading Adobe Fl. Pl. and trying another browser, but nothing seems to help. What am I supposed to do now with all my English classes??? Once again my information to you: I use Firefox and tried with Internet Browser. Before you rearranged, I was working with Br. Council without any problems for five years.

Hello ksenja62,

I'm sorry to hear that you've had so much trouble with the videos. Did you download and re-install the Flash Player? (I ask because you said you reloaded it.) Even if you already have it installed on your computer, it's important to install it again.

If that doesn't work, you might want to try using Chrome. In any case, please tell us what operating system and version of Firefox and Internet Explorer you're using. If your operating system or browsers are very old, that could be part of the problem.

Finally, please know that we don't offer immediate support at LearnEnglish. We moderate all comments before they are published, usually several times per day. We reply to comments as often as we can; although we make no promises about when we will do so, it usually takes about a day before we can reply to most comments.

All the best,

I am a volunteer teacher in India. This video is brilliant to show both cultures. I would like to use at St Mary's school next monday May 9th - kids are coming from slums. Can It be downloaded and saved in my computer? No internet at school of course. Thank you!

please upload the vedeios with low details to people who don't have speed internet like me

Hello Alaa Hessein,

I'm sorry to hear you're having some troubles with the video. We'll make a note of your suggestion for next time we edit these pages. In the meantime, I suggest you focus on our audio materials, which do not place such demands on your connection and which can be downloaded and listened to offline. You might try our Elementary Podcasts series, or our audio soap opera, Big City Small World.

 

Best wishes,

Peter

Hi Peter M

could you explain what does Stephen's mean when he said "I’ve been loads of times"?

Thank you

Hello Byxinh,

'I've been' means 'I've traveled to' and 'loads of times' means 'many times'. You can find a definition and example of 'loads of' in the dictionary – just look it up in the search box on the right side of this page.

All the best,
