Sorry, there must be something wrong with the video file, I can't see the whole material, when it starts about the cats it just stops... :(

Dear Sergio,

Sorry you are experiencing problems! However, the video plays fine for me. Make sure you have flash correctly installed.  The problem may also be to do with connection speed. You could try a different internet connection or even a different browser.

Best wishes,


TeachingEnglish Team

Hi nageeb12

Glad to hear you like the video. Would it help you to draw the animals if you pause the video? The pause button is on the bottom left of the screen.

Amazing! And one thinks it's really easy to do it... I really loved it!

Sorry to hear you are having problems watching the video - it's working fine here. You could try using a different brower. I hope that helps.

I have successfully viewed the video at last. I think it was due to my connection strength. Very good video. I need some more.
