Hi thatchayani,
I'm sorry you're not able to view the videos well.
You mention that you have a good internet connection, but when you say that you'd like to see the video without any interruptions, it sounds like the video is buffering, in other words, that there isn't a fast enough connection for it to load all at once.
Is that what you meant? Are you able to watch other videos on the internet without interruptions? If you could answer these questions and also tell me what kind of tablet and which browser you're using, that information might give me the information I need to help you.
Best wishes,

Looking Forwards to your reply.
p.s. I cant also watch even i click on " cant see the video? click here"

Hi Su Pyae,
I'm sorry that you're not able to see the videos. It's difficult for me to say what the problem is without knowing a bit more.
First of all, are you trying to watch the videos in Burma? What web browser are you using? Are you using a normal computer, or some kind of tablet or mobile phone? And what do you see where the videos should appear? (A blank space, an image, an error message?)
If you try to watch the videos on another computer, such as one at your work or school, do you have the same problem?
Can you see the viddler webpage?
I hope to be able to help you soon.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team Iran i can`t see movies because of cencoring the movies of all of the website.please . i can download movies.please please please put a link for downloading them.

Hi saeedeh soleimani,
I'm sorry to hear you can't watch the videos.  We know this is a problem in some countries and we are working on ways to make the videos accessible in more countries.  For example, on many pages now you can see a 'Can't see video?  Click here!' link (such as on this page), which may be a solution for you.
Unfortunately, for legal and technical reasons we can't make all of the videos available for download.  We do make the audio available for many of our texts, such as our Elementary Podcasts and our series Big City Small World.  I hope these will be useful for you and please keep checking - perhaps soon this video will be accessible to you.
Best wishes,

Hi everybody, I celebrate Christmas set up a tree with ball, light and ornament. The 24th evening we prepare the "cenone" ( a big dinner) with all antipasti like voulevant with cheese, pepper with "bagnacauda", canape with salmon, anchovies and other thing. We have the first course that is usually "agnolotti" stuffed "ricotta" (a kind of cheese) and spinach with "ragù" (a kind of sauce). As second course we eat pork with milk sauce or roast meat. After we eat tipical  christmas desserts like "panettone" or "pandoro"; we continue with fruit and nuts. When midnight arrives we give each other some gifts; at the end we play or chat. Merry Christmas! Buon Natale!
