Hello Mateiciuc,
This is a problem which a small number of our visitors see. We're not quite sure why it is, but we'd love to solve it! Can you please try to use a different computer and tell us if you still have the problem?
Best wishes,

i can't watch this video , why ?

Hello aiomomo!
Sorry to hear you're having problems. Unfortunately, users in China do have trouble watching some of our videos. Have you tried the video under 'Can't see video? Click here!' just under the main video? This maybe a bit slow, but it is a solution we're working on so our Chinese learners can join in. Please tell me if you can see that video; if you can't, I will try to give you some more help.

Best wishes

Hello Shams,

I have been there, York. It is wonderful place for everything. I felt York is really England. If I could have chance, I want to go there once more.

I have never been to York, but having watched York scene 1 I wish to know more about it. As I am interested in art, I would prefer going to the museum than shopping.
