Sorry to hear that. We know a small number of visitors are having problems with the videos on the site, but we don't know why. We are trying to fix it.

Can you tell us which web browser(s) you are using?

Hello everybody here

 I like it. They are a bit fast especially for learners and non native learners. Although their speed of conversation is just okay in everyday life situations of meeting someone we haven't seen in ages. I particularly like it as I didn't find any difficulty in catching up with listening and got in one shot. Words like mustn't grumble and the works were new on me and have written them down in my notebook already .
