Regarding the video issue... It looks like the standard definition version of the beach vocab video plays fine, but not the HD version. When trying to play the HD version, the interactive bus video plays instead.

Hello, I'm having the same problem, just like Max.

Instead, I get a 1:24 video that talks about a sign at the bus terminal.

I wish for an inspection, please.

Hi there,

The video playing is not about the beach, but the interactive ones.. about which sign at the bus terminal etc..

I don't know if anyone else had that issue? Maybe a glitch.
