Hello Gezixin,

I'm afraid that there are no alternative versions of the Word on the Street videos for devices that don't allow the Adobe Flash Player. Perhaps you could view these pages on another device? I'm not very good with iPads, but I wonder if there's some kind of app that will allow you to view videos made with Flash – but I really don't know.

Another possibility is to get the LearnEnglish GREAT videos app. This is not the same as Word on the Street, but it does have professionally-made videos in an app that works on iOS devices.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

don,t know why i can,t clipped the vedio....

Hello miniwang,

I'm afraid our videos are not available for download. If you aren't able to see the video, I'd suggest installing the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player on your device. If that doesn't work, please try another browser. If you still can't see it, please let us know.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

By the end of the course, I will pass English exam.

Completing conversations tasks is always challenging for me.

Hi learnning 1970,

I've checked the page and the tasks are working correctly, so it looks like a local issue. Some users have had problems with certain browsers - particularly Firefox - so I would suggest first trying to access the site via a different browser to see if that helps. Please try this and let us know if it solves the problem for you.


Best wishes,

Hi,I can't see video. How can I fix it?

Hi The LearnEnglish Team, at time (01:09) Ashlie says, 'That is it'. Is it the same as 'That's it'? Thank you very much.

Hello Aung Thet Naing,

Yes, that's correct. She uses 'That is it' here to say that she's fed up and wants this problem to end.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
