I can't see the videos

Hello wunderkind,

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the videos. I have checked the page and the video is working correctly so I can only assume that it is a local problems. It may be a hardware issue, in which case accessing the site via a different device may solve it. Try accessing the site through a different laptop or desktop computer if you can. Alternatively, it may be a software compatibility issue so using a different browser may help, or it could be a security problem in which a firewall or similar blocks media elements.

I hope you can find a solution to the problem.

i really love these videos , it helps me a lot.

Hello khang phung,

It's great to hear that you like our videos and find them helpful!

We certainly are still making them, but it takes some time to produce each series, so patience is required!

I don't know anything about York.
I like both shopping and museums but not for too long time, I prefer historic places, sports...

I don't know anything about this city I have only heard of its name before. I think going to the museum is better than shopping. Because seeing new, historical places and learning new things are excellent experiences, so I prefer going museums than shopping.

I don't know this city

I would go to the museum because learning about something is better than spending money for me.
