Hi Michael,
For the past few weeks our users in China have been unable to watch videos on our site. We know about this problem and are trying urgently to find a solution. The difficulty is that most international video-sharing services are unavailable or unreliable in China.
It's very important to us that all our users can see our video, so don't worry - we will get the video back to China as soon as we can!
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Dear The Learning English Team,
i don't know how to increase my English skill both writing and speaking
i wish i got 500 score for my ITP but in fact i just don't get it much better
would you give me a schedule plan or any advice to increase or improve my English skill?
thank u before

Dear Mymysweet,
I'm afraid I don't know a lot about the ITP exam, so I can't give you advice on improving your score in it.
I also can't give you a personalised learning plan, as it would take a lot of time to prepare and we have thousands of users on LearnEnglish. If you don't have a teacher to advise you, the best thing would probably be to work out your own strengths and weaknesses and work on them.
If you want to come back to us later and ask how to improve a specific area, hopefully someone will be able to help you.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
