Hi Tom,
Luckily, it's only the video servers that are in New York - the LearnEnglish team is in much dryer places!

Further to MNavarro's comment, I don't seem to be able to watch the video either.
I'm in France, have tried it on both Google Chrome and Firefox Mozilla. 
I'm not entirely sure where the video should be, but at the top it says "Do the preparation task, then watch the video. Next go to task...". 
There is nothing more.
Thanks for your response.

Hello Tom,
Yes, you're right. We had a problem with our video today. Some of our video clips are stored on a server in New York and due to the big storm there they stopped working. As far as I can see they are fixed now.

Hi Tarek,
You can see the level of these materials at the bottom of the page, where it says 'B1'. We know that this isn't clear for all our users, so we are planning to find a way to make it easier to understand.

Hi Admin,
I Wanna ask if it's possible to get courses with the british council in London just to improve my English cause I believe it's more better if I practice the language with the native ppl and to speak it even in street, I'm from Iraq and I'm living now in Egypt so it's hard to speak English all the time so if it's possible where can I go and ask ??

First time on the site, I cannot watch the videos, are there any computer requirements? what am I doing wrong?

11 out of 12, not so bad : )

great for educational purposes!
