Hello Muyi,

I'd suggest you install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player on your device, even if you already have it installed. This usually solves video problems, but if not, please try viewing the page in another browser. If none of those ideas work, please let us know what operating system and browser version you're using.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
