Hello again, dr_sanginabadi!

Sorry to hear you're still having problems. That link works for me, and should work for you. You may already have told me this, but so I can investigate further, can you answer a couple of questions?

  • Which web browser are you using? (Firefox, Internet Explorer...?)
  • What computer or phone are you using?
  • Where do you see the response - in the video window, or does it take you to another page?
  • Do you still have the same problem if you use a different computer?

Also, could you double check, if you have a moment, that other  "Can't see video? Click here" links do the same thing. Try Shakespeare, for example. Let me know if you can see that video.
Sorry you're having so much trouble!

Hello Mr Adam

I haven't got into for last month I've found some changes in the website. I cannot see the video. I am trying to listen YORK but I cannot. I just see the comments. That's all.
Please, could you tell me if there is something wrong on this topic, thanks a lot.

I look forward to hearing you...
Best wishes

We are having some problems with LearnEnglish at the moment. We hope they will be solved soon!

I cant watch the video

Hello there, kuandikova_abira95!
Sorry to hear you're having problems watching the video. Unfortunately, users in some countries do have trouble watching some of our videos.
We are trying a solution for some of our videos however. If you go to one of the later episodes of Word on the Street - say, York Episode 1 -  you will see a link that says 'Can't see video? Click here!' just under the main video. Please tell me if you can see that video; if you can't, I will try to give you some more help. We want to move all our videos to this system eventually!
Hope that helps!

York is a very interesting place to visit! I'd like to visit that place some day.
