hello. I am trying to watch these listening section videos but it is not playing and I click many times too and I went back and return again to listening section but it still no video playing, anyone know what is problem or how we can play these videos? kindly let us know. Thank you.

Hello ghaforienglish,

I've checked the page and the video is working correctly, so it seems the problem is a local one rather than one related to the page. It may be a compatibility issue with your device or software. The simplest thing to do would be to try accessing the page on a different device – not a mobile device, as these sometimes have limitations with regard to media.

Do the other videos on our site work for you, or is this a general problem?
