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

simple and useful

Sorry! i can't hear well.

The most usual way that I use to ask some one repeat a sentence is ' please repeat' or ' Sorry I can't understand you' or I say 'what?'

I had never heard the first one!

It is great but i got a chance to attend the class here in Addis Ababa,Ethiopia. when i took listening assessment a bit different from this.

It's really so nice topic.

Thanks so much!

I am sorry to say that I cannot watch your video here since I am located in China. What a pity!
