some months ago, i still watched all videos in this website, but right now i can't see anymore

I'm sorry to hear that. Can you see the videos if you click on this page? Can you see the videos on another computer (perhaps one at your work or school) or do you see the same problem there?

Hi Adam,
After accessing to your link, I can watch the other videos in this website (especially when I turn on the Hotspot Shield). I don't know what happened before, maybe due to HD videos (my laptop never ran on HD video before). But, now I can watch your videos here.  
Thank you for your supports.
Best regards.

Hi Zhulin,
I'm happy to hear it's now working! I hope you enjoy the videos.
Best wishes,

Hi guys! I come from Vietnam. I can't watch any videos here. Could you help me? I use Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, but I can't watch your videos.
I can watch only your videos in " Word on the Street" ( reconstructed videos with the instruction " Can't see the video? Click here!").

Hi Zhulin,
Well, at least you can see the 'Word on the Street' videos! Sorry to hear that you can't see the others. Users in Vietnam didn't have problems before, so I'm not sure yet what is happening.
Are you able to visit this page and watch the video there?
Best wishes,

Hi Adam, could you do me a favour? How to speak English by means of ASSIMILATION, WEAK ENGLISH, and CONNECTED SPEECH. Thanks

For me Christmas is a major religious feast that celebrates the birth of Jesus. In Advent time I prepare a crib with small statues bought by my mother about 80 years ago. Then I  usually take a small lamb that I name Terri, meant to represent me, and I put it far from the Holy Family's hut. Every night I move the lamb that is to reach the hut on 25 December. On 6 January I add the Magi.
