Hello kalyani,

Do you mean that you can't find the answer in the exercises? For all of our exercises, first you complete the exercise and then press the Finish button (at the bottom left corner of the exercise). After you press Finish, that button turns into the Check Answers button. If you press it, the correct answers will be displayed.

If I've misunderstood you, please rephrase your question.

All the best,

Hello timrobbot,

I'm glad to hear you like the video! There are exercises on the page, however - perhaps you didn't see these. If you click on the 'Task' and 'Task 2' links below the video window then you'll see the tasks.

Hello everyone.
I am wondering about videos on your website. The thing is that I cannot watch them, I see only "Connection Error" on the screen where should be the video. Could you tell me please, this is problem with my Internet or anything else; or maybe you have some problems with the website?
Thank you in advance!

Hello BereMOTuK,

It sounds as if there may have been a temporary internet connectivity problem. Are you able to view the videos now? They are working for me, and as far as I know there haven't been any problems recently, though there could have been a brief time when there were problems.

I'd also recommend you install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player on your device if the videos are not working. This often solves video problems. If that doesn't work, you can try using a different browser as well. After all that, if you're still having problems, please let us know what browser version you're using.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I am wondering why all these people who wrote the comments below this video seem to be good at English? Even this educational video is for basic learners!
