I love looking at fireworks. In my town fireworks are set off on Saint Rocky's festival, the festival of our saint patron. I love their colours and shapes, but they are very noisy. We make bonfires in June for Saint Antony day

Hi gobbysym,
No, you don't need real player. You can usually just click the video. Can you watch other videos on our website or is it just this one that isn't working? Please check your computer and then write again if you have more problems.
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Hi lobe,
Can you watch any of the videos on LearnEnglish Teens? Can you watch videos from other websites on the computer you're using? Which browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome etc) are you using? Let me know a bit more and I will try to help you, but I've just checked the videos on the site and they are working OK. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)
