Thanks Adam

I cannot see the videos! What should I do?

Hello Maymei,
Unfortunately our users in China (and Iran) can't see the videos on LearnEnglish at the moment, but we're trying to find a way to solve this problem.
We have one possible solution that you could try. Please go to Shakespeare Scene 1 and tell me if you can see the video there by clicking where it says 'Can't see video? Click here!' If that works, I can add it to this page as well.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Adam,
I am from China too , and I am unable to watch the video on Britain is great. but I could see the video after clicking 'can't see video' . Thank you!

Hi Adam
I listened to this video again and again And thanks to notice about our problem. fortunately I have found solution to this problem but unfortunately I have to wait for about 1 hour to download it because internet rate really goes down. sometimes it walk on my nerve but learn English has value to me for wait (Is it true sentence!!)  :D

Hi Morteza,
Thanks for your reply. So you can see the video on the other page by clicking on the link, but it's very slow? I don't think there is much we can do about a slow internet connection, I'm afraid.
Best wishes,

I'm glad to tell you that I can see the video. Thank you!

I'm very happy to hear that! We'll test with some more users in China and then make this option available on all our videos if it works.
Best wishes,

Hi there
I'm from Thailand and I love watching your Videos!!

I would prefer the countryside to the city. It is certainly much better to live there. Nature, birds and flowers. What can be more pleasant!
