Language level

Upper intermediate: B2


I think learn any language is hard. Maybe films and tv shows can help you to improve skills language. But it's just another step in a long way.

From my perspective, I think it depends on your target of learning a new language if it's for fun the casual ways may work, but if you need its for academic purposes classroom and courses are a must.
To be honest, I didn't find an effective method to improve my Englis level from intermediate level to advance, so I am still searching and I appreciate any useful suggestions.

Dear all staff of Learn English!
thanks alot for good services and helpful site

Hello teacher,
You are right.I had guessed that what those are, but I wanted to be sure.However, I have a suggestion.Please consider that , there is possible to add a feature on the platform so when I log in ,it tells me "You have a new message".It would be excellent.
Thank you very much of you and your partners.

Hello David

Thanks for your suggestion -- we will take it into consideration.

All the best

Hi sir,
I realized there are some numbers like a sing in the right hand of the topics.
For example 0 or 365.What are exactly those ?Are those useful things for leaner?
please describe those.

Hello mdaivid

Do you mean the small numbers above and to the right of the picture? If so, those are social media buttons -- they show how many times the page has been shared in Twitter, on Facebook, etc. You are welcome to use those buttons, but they are not important for learning from the page.

If those are not the numbers you meant, could you please describe where you see them?

All the best

Well, I think the faster way to learn English is to spend time talking to native speakers, so lucky for those who intend to travel to a country, that speaks English and learn from people who lived there

It's a good padcast. Thank you for that. Listening to a decent British English is such a relief after the American mess!..

Hi, I'm a new website user, and only have listened to a few podcasts, but so far I enjoyed it. I think for a start is good to do the test and see what level you are on, then try to find activities. Anyway this is how I have started. :-)
