Hi, I couldn´t practice this lesson because it didn´t show me any reading, only a picture, this is the second time that I try to do it but it doesn´t show me anything. Could you help me? Thanks!!

Hi Vanessa Rodrìguez,

Thanks for letting us know. I've just checked the page and it seems fine, so it may have been a temporary error. Can you see the reading text now?

If not: which picture can you see - is it (1) the picture of rubbish on a beach, or (2) the picture of a seal with a plastic bottle? Do you find the same problem with other pages (e.g. this one)? 

If it is still not working, one solution is to try opening the page with a different web browser and see if it works. I hope it works now but please let us know again if not, and I will investigate further. Thanks :)

Hello KarenAvdalyan,

Jonathan replied to Vanessa Rodrìguez's post with several questions. You can see his answer below. If you're still having problems please reply to his post with the information he asked for and we'll see if we can help.

 

Most often, these kinds of problems are either compatibility problems where a particular device does not show the page correctly or local connection issues related to local internet regulations. You could try accessing the page via a different type of device (a laptop, for example, if you are having problems with a mobile device) to see if that helps.

Hello Andrea Valencia,

I'm sorry to hear you're having some problems. I've checked the page and everything is functioning correctly on both Windows and Mac, so I can only gues that there is a compatibility issue. Try using a different browser or a different device, if you can - this may solve the issue. Sometimes there are compatibility problems with mobile devices, so if you have a laptop or desktop computer you might try this.

I recommend Colombia: Magia Salvaje, a documentary that shows the nature beauty and wonders of Colombia, a biodiverse country with a huge amount of unique species. In that way, the film also shows the environmental problems that suffer the country and give advices to fight against them.

I would totally recommend you to watch the Walking With Dinosaurs series. This documentary series was produced by BBC probably in the 1990s. This documentary will take you to the Mesozoic era where dinosaurs still roaming the earth. It consists of six episodes, in which they tell you about specific times and also creatures. When you watch this series, you will find it fascinating to see these beasts perceived as real animals, not just monsters trying to eat each other. The story is really engaging, it feels like you are watching a drama since there will be a main dinosaur that you will follow along each episode. I am always in awe whenever I watch it because the CGI is just so good, even for that time.
