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,



The LearnEnglish Team

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,

Hello Kirk
I appreciate your efforts again and I am very happy to have a chance to take advantage of such a this membership and hope lucky for you all .
I recommend this site to every of my friends and family interested in issue .
sincerely yours

Hello dear kirk
I had to appreciate you all for your grate website and your good support .
I tried some other video clips but they dont work too on my notebook ( windows system).likewise another device - a galaxy note - and my mobile phone with android system .they just play the flash files and audio files.
Personally I think it might be due to local filtrations .
but if there would be a download link perhaps it wouldnt be filtrable because of the extreme Number of links .
on the other hand this may make problem in use of service on some devices .
As I think this site is the best source for study English. so it is so bad to miss so many of tests .
I hope you could find a way to resolve it .our put a possible way for users .
and also a forum for chat and speak by learners (who have the same motivations ) would be very useful if possible .
grate thanks again
