Hello ziya!

Sorry to hear you're having problems watching the video! 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 should appear? Nothing, or is there a message?
  • Can you see videos on other pages on LearnEnglish - like Richard talking about sport?
  • 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 – for example, 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!

I believe that there is a tiny mistake in the transcription: "Jacqui: Richard, we carry on average 1.35 million people on our boats". I think Jacqui says passengers instead of people.
Anyway, I consider this is a good way (and cheap too) to improve my English. Thank you very much indeed

Hello ipman73!
 
Sorry to hear you're having problems seeing our videos. Sometimes people in a few countries can't see the videos, but it is unusual for Italians to have issues. To help me, please can you answer the following questions?
 

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

 
We are working on alternatives for people who can't see our videos. 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!
