thank you for all lesson I's really help me to improve my english skill

sorry, the task 3 in Blackpool scene is same with task in Farming scene ?

Hello Niken,

Thanks for telling us about this problem. I've fixed it now.

Best wishes,

I have a problem, for the last weeks I can not see anymore the videos from Word on the Street. I can see the transcrispt, the tasks but where should be the video I can see only the rectangle which is black. Do you have the same problem or only me? Thank you

Hello olimpiagv,

I would suggest that you update your Flash player. To do this, search the internet for "update Flash player" and follow the instructions there.

After you do this, if you're still not able to see the video, please let us know. It would be very helpful if you could tell us what kind of device you're using, what operating system it uses, and what browser you're using.

Finally, until this problem is solved, you should be able to view some Word on the Street pages. For example, the most recent pages on Farming have a section called 'Can't see the video?' - if you click there, I think you should be able to view the video in that space. There are other Word on the Street pages, though not all, that have this same option.

Thanks for your collaboration.

Best wishes,

Thank you very much Kirk, I've found out what is the problem, the browser. I've just opened with another browser and it is working. Many thanks again, Olimpia

I’ll wave to you when I go past -- what is it meaning in english? thank

Hello Elgun_V,

It means exactly what it says - there is no metaphorical or idiomatic meaning here: the person will wave (a kind of gesture to say hello or goodbye) as they go past (they may be driving or riding a bike, for example).

Best wishes,
