Hello dear
I can,t see the videos. After clicking on " can,t see video? click here" I can,t see them . 

Hello Mahin!
Sorry to hear you're having problems. Usually, users in Iran can see the videos under "Can't see Video? Click here". To help me find out what the problem is, could you give me a bit more information?

  • Which web browser are you using? (Firefox, Internet Explorer...?)
  • What do you see where the videos should appear? Nothing, or is there a message?
  • Have you tried any other web pages with Can't see video...? For example, one of our How to... pages.
  • Do you still have the same problem if you use a different computer?

Let me know the answers, and we'll see if we can solve the problem!

Hey people. Need to know how can I post my comments in
Public.i'm new here and still don't know how to use this site

York is a very interesting place to visit! I'd like to visit that place some day.

I cant watch the video

Hello there, kuandikova_abira95!
Sorry to hear you're having problems watching the video. Unfortunately, users in some countries do have trouble watching some of our videos.
We are trying a solution for some of our videos however. If you go to one of the later episodes of Word on the Street - say, York Episode 1 -  you will see a link that says 'Can't see video? Click here!' just under the main video. Please tell me if you can see that video; if you can't, I will try to give you some more help. We want to move all our videos to this system eventually!
Hope that helps!

Hello Mr Adam

I haven't got into for last month I've found some changes in the website. I cannot see the video. I am trying to listen YORK but I cannot. I just see the comments. That's all.
Please, could you tell me if there is something wrong on this topic, thanks a lot.

I look forward to hearing you...
Best wishes

We are having some problems with LearnEnglish at the moment. We hope they will be solved soon!
