Hello Trisha112,

At the beginning they are not at a gallery but at an art market.  Their trip to the gallery comes only at the end.  Art markets, where you can buy and sell art, are different from art galleries, where you can only look.

I love these videos, it's helped me a lot. Thanks a million The Learn English Team :)

why I can't see these videos?!

Hello n.atefi,

There are a number of possible reasons.  The videos require a Flash-compatible system and browser, so if you are using a mobile device you may have problems.  We know also that users in some countries have probems accessing our videos.  To help with this, we have created some alternative links.  Try going to this page and, if the video does not work, click on the 'Can't see video? Click here!' link instead.  If this video works then the problem is one related to your location and you will have to look for pages with the 'Can't see video? Click here!' link.

I hope that helps you to solve your problem.

Best wishes,

Thank you for the great clips for learning English. I think this site is better than NPR, VOA.
By the way, I love you, Ashlie :D

Hi Peter
I'm glad, finally I managed to find the way for watching your great video and flash, I installed photon-flash-player-browser and now I can watch it easily. Thanks.

I couldn't watch it, unfortunately my galaxy doesn't support to show it. What should I do?

Hello Shimasoltani,

I'm afraid there is nothing we can do other than to suggest you access the site on a different device which does offer Flash support.  Any laptop or desktop computer should be Flash-compatible, so if possible try to use one of those.

Best wishes,
