  • Would it be possible to get the audio script for the audio file? Its not always possible to have internet access and AV equipment on hand in class. The audio script would make it much simpler.

  • Hi Claudia,

    Thanks for the feedback and sorry to hear you are having problems. I think what has happened here is that you are downloading the whole page rather than just the file and this is why it is saving as an html file.

    When you open the audio, what you need to do is right click on the link which says 'Right-click here to download' then select 'Save link as...'. You should save the link to your desktop (or an appropriate folder) and it will save as an mp3 file which you can then play in iTunes.

    What might have happened before is that you clicked 'Save as...' rather than 'Save link as...' which meant you saved the page (as an html file), not the file (an an mp3).

    Hope that helps.
    Best wishes,

  • Hello,
    I have been trying to download the audio but it seems to be impossible. It downloads as an html file and I cannot listen to it. I use iTunes. Is there anything I could do to save the file as an actual audio file? Thank you very much,
    Claudia

  • Hi Christine,

    We have checked the file and if you first download Windows Media Player, then follow the instructions, once you have right clicked, selected 'Save link as...' and chosen where to save the link you can right click on it and select 'Open with...' and choose Windows Media Player.

    If this still doesn't work, please contact us via help@macmillan.com and a member of our technical team will be able to help you.

    Best wishes,

  • Hi BenG,
    To download the audio just left-click on the file above then, when the file has loaded, right-click where it says 'Right-click here to download' and you will be able to 'Save link as' or 'Save target as', depending on your browser.
    We hope you enjoy the lesson!
    Best wishes,
