I am very disappointed that I can no longer watch the videos on this device. So far it worked fine. We all work more on portable devices than desktops.

Hello Bert,

Have you tried downloading and installing the latest version of Flash on your device? I was just able to view the video on my Android phone and as far as I know there are no technical issues with this or any other video of ours. Even if you already have Flash installed, re-installing it often solves video problems.

By the way, we are working hard to make LearnEnglish more mobile-friendly; you should see some changes in the next few months.

Hello starg4260,

We're glad you found us! I'd suggest you start by reading our Help page, where you can find general advice on learning English as well as specific ideas on how to use our site. Then it would probably be worth spending a bit of time exploring the site using the menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.).

All the best,

how to download?

Hello dovlya,

The videos on LearnEnglish are not available to download, for technical and legal reasons. You can, of course, watch them as often as you wish online.
