    • Agnieszka from RealLife English says:

      Hello! I’m sorry for the issues that you’re having. Let’s see if we can figure this out together.
      For some reason, it appears that there’s some sort of block between you and our cloud servers (the technology we use for the sign-in).

      It’s probably due to blockage between either your country and/ or Google’s Cloud servers, which we use. Because of this, to use the app, you’ll probably need to use a VPN. If you need more guidance, please write to us at [email protected]
