Hello vanessa1,

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the video. I've checked the page and it is functioning correctly, so I can only guess that the problem is a local one. There are three possibilities.

First, it could be that your hardware (device) is not compatible. The best way to check this is to use an alternative device (a laptop or desktop as some mobile devices may not be compatible) to see if it solves the problem.

Second, you may have security settings on your device which block certain content, especially media. You can check this on your device.

Third, your service provider may not allow certain content in your location because of local laws or regulations. Obviously, this is not something we have any influence over.


I hope you find a solution to your problem.

Hello Ahmed,

I'm not completely sure what you mean. You can attempt every task as many times as you wish by clicking 'Try again', or simply by reloading the page. Your results are not stored on the site so every time you do a task it is, in effect, the first time.

I think the winner of the 2018 World Cup is....... VAR!! ;)

The most important moments from the history of the world cup for the Algerian team were the first participation in 1982 when Algeria won against Germany 2/1, also when the national team was qualified for the third time to the world cup in 2010 after 24 years of absence, and finally the best brilliant moment was the qualification in 2014 to second round of the competition for the first time and facing Germany in great match, The Algerians created a lot difficulties to the Germans even they lost 2/1.
