Dear admin , I pressed on the bar " reading text" but nothing appear , just a picture of a sea dog .
Hello lephuong I'm sorry you're having trouble reading the article. I would recommend that you update your web browser or that you try a different web browser to see if you can read the text there. This page is working, but it could be that some older browsers don't display the text. If you're not able to do that, we plan to add a PDF to the page in the next few weeks and you could read that once it's available. If you could tell me the operating system, web browser and browser version you are using, I'd be grateful so that we can look into a possible solution to this problem.

I had the same problem about the text, but I have fixed that using another browser. Anyway the topic was really interesting and I'll definitely watch the documentary on Netflix as soon as possible. There is too much plastic in the world, unnecessary most of the times. We separate waste to help recycle but it isn't enough, we have to reduce the source. Once we were used to keep and reuse over and over again our stuff, we have to remember that. Anyway, I love documentaries because they let you find out new contents and make everything more impressive thanks to images. Usually I like historic documentaries.

Hello Kirk, I have the same problem when trying to find the reading text. I tried different browsers: Chrome and Firefox and the result was the same. Thank you,
Hello hamaka and AL-Mustafa First of all, I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. We have used a new way of displaying the text on this page to make it more attractive and very much want to find out why it's not working on your devices. Could you please tell us what browser versions you are using? To find it in Chrome, press the three small dots (in the top right corner), then choose Help, then choose About Google Chrome. In Firefox, press the three lines (in the top right corner), then choose Help, then choose About Firefox. In the meantime, we will prioritise creating the PDF for this page and add it as soon as we can. Thanks very much in advance for your help with this. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team

I can't found the reading text for this .
Hello AL-Mustafa The reading text should display if you click or press on the bar that says 'Reading text'. I've checked and it is working, so if you can't see it, I would recommend using a different web browser or device to see if you can read it there. If not, please let us know what browser version you are using. One last option will be to download the PDF of the page, but I'm afraid we haven't finished creating it for this page yet. Sometime in the next few weeks, there should be a PDF for this and all the other pages in our Skills section. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
