Hello bornamahmood!
 
Sorry to hear you're having problems! So I can help you, could you answer these questions?

  • Which web browser are you using? (Firefox, Internet Explorer...?)
  • What computer or phone are you using?
  • What do you see where the videos and tasks should appear? Nothing, or is there a message?
  • Have you tried any other web pages on LearnEnglish?
  • Do you still have the same problem if you use a different computer?

Also, we know some users do have issues, and we are working on alternatives. Please go to our new episodes of Word on the Street – say, Shakespeare and try the link that says “Can't see video? Click here!”. Let me know if you can see that video OK.
 
Let's see if we can sort out your issue!

Hello dr_sanginabadi!
 
Sorry to hear you're having problems watching the video. Unfortunately, users in Iran do have trouble watching some of our videos.
 
We are trying a solution, 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!

Hi Jeremy,
I tried episode 1 and still have problem with that ,I mean while I try to watch the Video it says Video not found or access denied, I'm afraid I think it's due to my government restriction on Internet but thanks you for your advise.
Best Wishes,

Hello dr_sanginabadi!
 
Sorry to hear you're still having problems. Did you click on the link underneath the main video on York Scene 1? There's a link that says "Can't see the video..." When you click on that, you should be able to see a second, smaller video. Please let me know if you can't - but please tell me on that page.
