Me too i have the same problem and I'm using Internet Explorer browser and Samsung galaxy not 3 as a phone. .

Hello asim khider,

If you can, please try accessing the site via a non-mobile device (not a phone or tablet). A laptop or desktop computer may solve your problem.

I have checked the video and it is working correctly, so the problem must be a local one related to your system, device or location.

How should I say it in English when I want to ask someone about the particular colour of something?
I use to say it like 'Which colour is of tiger?(Here I want to ask the particular colour of the tiger)
Is it correct?

Hello aini sid,

The most common way of asking this is: 'What colour is a tiger?' You can use this with just about anything, e.g. 'What colour is the sky?', 'What colour are his eyes?', 'What colour was your first car?', etc.

Thank you very much for your friendly answer. As you see, I've just learned a new meaning of the term "not moderated.

Not being a native speaker,I cannot understand why both my comments are considered "not moderate".My intention is to show how much I appreciate the opportunity the British Council gives us to listen to good British English pronunciation.I would very nuch appreciate your answer.
