Hello Bao Ngoc,

The first thing I would recommend is to read the advice on our Frequently asked questions page. Our Facebook page also has lots of links to useful resources for improving your speaking and your English in general.

Please don't hesitate to ask us if you have any other questions.

My question is only about Sam when he said:
HI. Er..
what's that mean?
Is it the assistant name or there's a specific use for ER?
Thank you

Hi DaniaManla,

This is the sound that people sometimes make when they are thinking about what to say. Sometimes it's spelt 'er', other times 'erm' or 'uh'. It doesn't have a direct meaning; it just shows that we are thinking.

All the best,

Hi Ramazan,

There are quite a lot of resources on our site that you could use to improve your speaking and understanding. In our Listening section, I would recommend Starting Out and Big City Small World. There are also a few more Speaking videos at the A2 level on LearnEnglish Teens.
