Hello Mustafa,

Thanks very much your kind words! I'm afraid that a Connection Error usually indicates a temporary server problem or a problem on your end. I've checked this video and a few others just in case, and they are all working for me now. If they're not working for you, I'd recommend trying to see them on a different device or web browser, as this sometimes can also help.

If not, you might want to consider trying our audio content. Our Elementary Podcasts, for example, can be downloaded and we've never had a user unable to listen to them.

If there's any other way we can help you, please let us know.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Dear LearnEnglish team,
First of all, thanks for your great educational tools. Using them in my English classes gives my students the opportunity to learn language and culture in an enjoyable way.
Because our school is in Italy, it's not always possible to view the videos. We get the "connection error" message.
Why does this happen? It's such a shame! Could you please tell me that there's an answer to this problem?
Some of your videos have been uploaded to Youtube, and I send my students there. However, there are still many that can't be viewed in Italy.
Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hello r.crawford,

It's nice to hear that our materials are helpful! There are sometimes problems with access in some countries, but these are rather countries which limit or control internet access as part of their political or legal systems, and Italy is clearly not such a country. I suspect, therefore, that the problem is either related to your system or device or is caused by a local security setting, such as a firewall which blocks certain content.

To test the former, I suggest trying to access the videos using a different device and/or browser. Try using a desktop or laptop computer which you do not usually use (mobile devices can have problems with some media formats). If the videos work then you will know it is a hardware issue and that you need to use a different device.

To test the latter, try accessing LearnEnglish from another location, using a different network (a WiFi network which is not part of the school system). If you can access the media through a different network then you will know that it is a security/network issue and can ask a technician to whitelist LearnEnglish and allow connections.

I hope you can solve this problem. There is not really anything we can do to help with such local issues, I'm afraid. All that we can do is ensure that our pages are working correctly, which they are.


Best wishes and good luck,


The LearnEnglish Team

I’m going to go get changed -

what does it mean?which is the grammatical structure?

Hello Reddy_Rabby,

There is a construction which is used to express intentions which is quite common in spoken English. It is

go and do something

Example: I'd like to go and speak to him.

The meaning is something like 'go there in order to'.

In your example the 'and' is omitted, which is not unusual in infomal language.


Best wishes,

Last month i start working out at gym.It' s feel very exhausting.

At the weekends, my family and I are enjoying outdoor activities, like playing football with friends, swimming with my sons and practice English for an hour.
For Thursday, we spend the night playing football till we become totally exhausted and return to home for taking a warm shower and relax.
Next day, on Friday, we go for walking along the beach, enjoying the fresh sea air and become loaded with positive energy.
One of the incredible outdoor activities is sharing the English language practice with my kids, like playing quiz or speaking in English for about one hour, really, I like that part.
