Hello everyone.
I am wondering about videos on your website. The thing is that I cannot watch them, I see only "Connection Error" on the screen where should be the video. Could you tell me please, this is problem with my Internet or anything else; or maybe you have some problems with the website?
Thank you in advance!

Hello BereMOTuK,

It sounds as if there may have been a temporary internet connectivity problem. Are you able to view the videos now? They are working for me, and as far as I know there haven't been any problems recently, though there could have been a brief time when there were problems.

I'd also recommend you install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player on your device if the videos are not working. This often solves video problems. If that doesn't work, you can try using a different browser as well. After all that, if you're still having problems, please let us know what browser version you're using.

All the best,

I am wondering why all these people who wrote the comments below this video seem to be good at English? Even this educational video is for basic learners!

good day
can you tell me sir how could i improve my speaking English speaking level is very poor.i want to improve any other suggestion.sorry for my bad writing skill.

Hello sadib hoque,

There's some advice on improving your speaking and your writing on our Frequently asked questions page. The methods described there have worked for many people, and note that keeping a vocabulary notebook, which is also explained on that page, would be helpful for both speaking and writing.

If it's possible for you, I'd also highly recommend looking into the classes that the British Council offers in Bangladesh – surely you could get some useful help there.

Good luck!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

why Ashlie used Future tense in this sentence (I’ll have a soup and a hot chocolate and he’ll have a cheese sandwich and a coffee, please ) she order now so say (I have a soup ) , could you explain it please

Hello Nermeen Eletriby,

We use 'will' when we are making a spontaneous decision, such as when we are ordering something in a restaurant.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

Hi Peter,
Can we also use the word "want" while we order something in a restaurant. For example;

I want to have a soup and a hot chocolate.

I think it's better to add some more tasks with more difficulty.
