It's not clear when the guide spoke about the bells saying FOUR, it seems POOR, not an F but a P!!! So strange!

In this video, i can't understand when guide say "four" her voice is "Pour".

feel so happy....just say nice.

I'd love to have a wonderful traditional English afternoon tea, too. It'd be truly amazing!
awasome video. I liked it so much, because I enjoyed learning more about English culture.

Dear Team,

I have a question, why can't I save all the videos into my computer/laptop?It's very difficult to watch only by open this website.

Hope you answer me soon and thank you very much for your attention.

Hi Rini,

I'm sorry it's difficult for you to see them, but I'm afraid that most of our videos are under copyright. To see a complete list of our downloadable video and audio, please see our iTunesU page.

why I can't see the videos? I installed adobe flash player on my pc following your advices.

Hello lalista,

It's not really possible for us to give you any more suggestions as we can't see your device or test it in any way. I suggest you try accessing the site from a different device (a laptop or desktop computer) to see if that solves the problem.

Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team
