I think the words of the videoes are fast. So, I can't hear it well. I think it will be good for learning English if they speak slowly. It will be easier to catch the words.

Thanks for the helpful lesson!!!!!!!!!

Hello ewa hart,

I would suggest you try the videos in our Speaking skills section and the audios in our Listening skills section.

All the best,

Sorry, could you repeat it, please? Am... actually I couldn't catch your words.

This is another way. Is there any problem.

Yes. I can.

Maybe with non-verbal communication...

It's great ,because these sentences all use like this situation , when somebody say something for more than three time and you don't quite hear him . Please if I have any mistakes in my comment, correct it to me, don't be shy

Hello Aktham Youssef

I'm sorry that the video doesn't work well for you. Could you please tell us more about the problems you're having? Are you able to see other videos on our site, for example in the Video zone or Starting Out?

Hello Mohamed

The video on this page is working for me and I can't see any evidence that it stopped working recently. I'd suggest trying to see it using a different web browser or different device. If possible, I'd also suggest updating your browser to the newest version. Our videos sometimes don't work on older browsers.

If you still can't see if after trying all of that, please let us know what browser and browser version you are using.

Good luck!

All the best
