Hello farahvah,

Can you tell me if the link I put in the first reply works for you?  If it does, then that will tell us what the problem is.

Best wishes,

i can not see the video

Hello farahvah,

We know that users in certain countries have problems accessing some of our content.  On some pages we have put alternative links for these users.  For example, on this page about the UK you'll see a link entitled 'Can't see the video? Click here!' - click on this to see if this lets you see the video.  If so, then you'll be able to watch videos with such links, though not all of our videos have them.

If that doesn't work then we'll need a little more information to be able to help you.  Can you let us know what you see in the video window?  Is there a message or do you see an empty space? Please also let us know what device and system you are using to access the site. Some mobile devices, such as those using iOS, are not flash-compatible and so cannot show our videos.

If you can let us know the answers to these questions then we'll try our best to find a solution for you.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
