Do the preparation exercise first. Then watch the video and do the exercises to check your understanding and practise the language.

Noelia: I'm ready.
Yuna: We have half an hour.
Noelia: OK, let's go!
Yuna: How about starting with social media?
Noelia: Sure. Engagement is up 15 per cent this month.
Yuna: Good. So let's go for 20 per cent for next month.
Noelia: Yeah, sure. I'll tell the team. We'll need some extra help to make it work.
Yuna: Agreed. Good idea.
Yuna: Why don't you ask Vanya to help you create a new social media plan?
Noelia: OK, no problem. Shall we present it at the next team meeting together?
Yuna: Good plan. Can you let Paul see it first?
Noelia: Sure, I'll do that.
Yuna: Anything else?
Noelia: No, that's it.

Hello Thet Llwin Aung,
I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with the video.
I've checked the page and it appears to be working correctly. The problem is likely to be a local issue, therefore. This may be a compatibility issue, so you could try accessing the page using a different device, especially using a device which is not a mobile device (a laptop or desktop computer, for example). You might also check any security software you have installed to ensure that it is not blocking the page.
A second possibility is that local regulations block the content. Different countries have different regulations regarding internet content, so this is something you might also check.
I hope you find a solution. If not, remember that there are many pages on LearnEnglish with non-video material (audio, text and interactive activities), and the video pages have transcripts which you can read even if you cannot watch the video.
