Hello again Kaofeng!
As I said in my answer on the episode 8 page, some users do have problems viewing videos. Let me know if you can see the video in 'Can't see the video? Click here!' part of the page. If not, we'll try to find out what the problem is.

Hi Jeremy,
It's okay now. I can see the video without problem right now.
Thank you!!!

My name is Cristina P. I have fifteen years I worked in human resources and in this case is possible only if the head of area accepts the delay in the recruitment and so we wait for the candidate. If the boss does not agree to hire the second option. I think is better heard the request of the new employes before sign your contract.

i dont know how to download the video clips for business & work....can get help please?

Hello rislam!

I am happy you like the video enough to want to keep it! Unfortunately, we don't have the files ready for download so you can't download and keep them at the moment. We hope to make them available in the future, so keep watching the site. In the meantime, feel free to watch this video and others as often as you like!
Best wishes

Sarah is very good negotiator. I hope I can negotiate well like her. I just applying for some jobs recently and while waiting, shaping my grammar wouldn't be bad. Hope I can be more fluent and excellent in grammar and speaking. Looking forward for anyone or LearnEnglish team to give feedback. Please don't hesitate to chat or talk with me :) 

I think she's not a very professional and/or realistic character.
I work also in IT sector, how can somebody ask to delay is job starting from 1 week to 1 month ? And inform this just a week before ?
This can affect all the schedule of the company, they would hire another person if they (the company) knew before.
By the way, I've just registered here after having seen " world on street"  on TV (Ashley is very cute).
I was wondering how can we download the videos, there may be third party software or temporary folder to help recover the file  ?

Hello Eko69!
I think you make some interesting points about the video! Remember, though, the vidoes are there to demonstrate the language you might use - and there are some situations where you might need to delay a little.Maybe not one month, though...
Also, I'm happy you like our Word on the Streets videos enough to download them. Unfortunately, however, for legal reasons, we cannot make these videos available for download, although you are welcome to watch them as many times as you like on our site.
Enjoy the rest of your stay on LearnEnglish!
