The teacher on the courses probably a good man. They promised to teach how to fix electrical system, wheel, tyres and brakes but additionally teach how engine works and how to check oil level and cooling system! It's very kind of them!

London is so amazing... I hope I can travel and even study in London in the future

I cannot watch the videos.

Hello Beatriz,

I'd suggest you install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player on your device. Even if you already have it installed, doing this often solves video problems. You could also try viewing it in a different browser. If you still can't see the video after trying those two things, please let us know what browser version you're using and we'll do our best to help you.

All the best,

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

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
