Hi guys, why is written?
Ice cream is a favourite food the world over.
and not....
Ice cream is a favourite food over the world.
Thank you.

Hello Bara

'the world over' is a common expression that means the same thing as 'all around the world'. I'm afraid that 'over the world' is not used, though you could say 'around the world'.

I am not sure about Mozilla and Explorer versions, but I just downloaded Google Chrome and the video still doesn't work....It was functioning normally until last week, but impossible to see it today on any browser.
Is there a possibility that I could get the MP4 link of the video from you sent on my email adress??
I feel frustrated not to be able to show it to my students (as I already prepared them for it...).
Thanks for your help anyway....

Hello Pascalune
I'm really sorry to hear that you aren't able to view the video. I'm afraid that the video is under copyright, so there's no way for me to send you the file or a link to download it.
I'm still able to view the video this morning, so I wonder if there is some kind of configuration in your school that is blocking it. Have you tried viewing the video in different places, i.e. where the internet service provider is different? As far as I can tell, there is no error on our end, which makes me wonder if the internet service where you are is blocking the video for some reason.
Best wishes

It doesn't work on internet explorer either.

I really like this video. I wanted to use it to show my ESL students (in an Agriculture school) today. But the video doesn't work anymore as it used to.... Is there a possibility you can put it back online shortly??

Hello Pascalune
I'm sorry you weren't able to use this video. It's very strange because it's working on my computer. Have you tried viewing it in a different web browser or on a different device? As far as I can know, it should work. If you still can't see it, please let us know what browser version you are using.

Hello Pascalune
Thanks for your reply. I've just been able to watch it on both Firefox (version 66.0.2) and Internet Explorer (11.648.17134.0). What versions are you using? Have you tried Chrome as well -- it might work better there.
Also, I assume you are logged in when you try to watch the video? If not, try logging in. If you are logged in when you can't see it, it might also be a good idea to try logging out to see if it will work then.
Sorry for the inconvenience!

Good afternoon first of all hello to everyone,
let's see what kind of products comes from the cow first thing first of all actually I think milk then I think we can make cheese, yogurt,butter,cream,margarine and different kind of yogurt with different kind of flavors. Or you can make different creams for some cookies,and of course ice cream.
Yes definitely I really like ice cream with all of the flavors I don't think so is the special flavors that I really like. Sometimes I try strawberry, sometimes cinnamon sometimes vanilla, sometimes nutty and sometimes chocolate flavors. But for me it doesn't matter the flavor important is how the texture of the ice cream not the flavor.
Bye for now, and have a lovely day.

i really like the song about ice-cream, but can't find it, could you please tell me who is singing.
