I wear a very comfortable grey trainers size 5. A new phrase I learned is Trainers. Very useful practise. Thank you.

I have wear gray shoes in size 7

Thank you for making this video.
I wear a black shoes in the size of 9 at the moment after when it will be the summer I will wear sandals. It still important to review some notions of level A2 for those who have a good level. I hope that there will be a little more of videos for the level A2 because this website makes a great content.

Hello there,
I want to improve my speaking skills although the videos are helping me but can you give me some more tips in this regard

Hi Meher Parveen

One thing that could be useful is the Speaking skills section of LearnEnglish Teens, where you will find three other videos very similar to this one at the A2 level. Our Facebook page also has lots of links to useful pages and sites -- I'd recommend taking a look at it from time to time, as our team there works hard to find useful content for you.

Finally, I'd also recommend our Frequently asked questions page, where you can find some advice on how to improve your speaking in general. People often don't think of listening as a part of speaking, but of course you can't speak with anyone if you don't follow what they're saying!

Good luck!

All the best

Hi! My shoes"s size is 11.

New useful sentence is- "Do you want to try the white ones in your size?".
