Hello pruneeta,

In British English, these are both correct and have the same meaning in this context.

We often use 'have a go' to mean 'try' something and can be used in many situations. For example, we might say:

That game looks fun.  Shall we have a go?

I've never cooked using that technique before.  Can I have a go?

I'm not sure I can do it, but I'll have a go.

'Go on' has a more limited meaning and is used with rides or machines that you can ride.  For example:

I sometimes feel sick when I go on the big wheel.

You have to be over 12 years old to go on this rollercoaster.

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

Hello Cristyans,

I've tested the video and it appears to be working well, so I suspect the problem is related to your end.  Do other videos on the site work for you, or is there a problem with all of them?  The videos on LearnEnglish use Flash and require a Flash-compatible browser, so if you are using a mobile device such as an iPhone or iPad this may be an issue.  Could you let us know what device you are using, and what operating system?  Once we have that information we'll see if there's anything we can suggest to help.

Best wishes,

Hello,
 
Can you please explain me the difference between look like, look and such as.
Thanks.
Your job is great.

Hello Amel,
'Look like' usually refers to something which is physically similar:
'I look like my father: we're both tall, brown-haired and slim.'
It can also be used to talk about probability:
'It looks like United will win the match.'
 
'Look' is a verb which describes what you do with your eyes.
'Look at this picture - it's beautiful, isn't it?'
 
'Such as' is used when you want to give some examples:
'I like active hobbies, such as cycling, running and playing football.'
 
I hope that helps you.
Best wishes,
