I can't see the video. I see the inscription "Connection error". Sometimes the video was avalable. Maybe you can halp me?

Hello Qwesa,

The video is working for me now – what about you? This kind of error is often due to internet connectivity problems or some kind of temporary technical problem. If you still can't see the video, are you able to see other videos, e.g. on YouTube? 

All the best,

Hello, Kirk!

I am able to see videos on YouTube, but I still can't see videos on britishcouncil. Unfortunately I don't know what's the problem.

Hi Qwesa,

Please try installing the Adobe Flash Player on your device – that may solve the problem. If not, could you please tell us what browser you're using and what version of the browser it is? Are you able to see the videos on LearnEnglish if you use a different device and/or browser?

All the best,
