pls could you explain me this
wts different between they are such noisy children
and
stop being so nosy?! when i ve to put so and such ?!
and i dont understand this question
we use (such/so) before adjectiove (noum or just a noun) could u give me an example?
thank you

Hello Mark828,

First of all, nosy and noisy have different meanings: nosy means being too interested in other people's business, while noisy means making a lot of noise or being very loud.

The meaning of 'so' and 'such' is similar, but we use them differently.  We use 'so' to modify and strengthen an adjective:

He is so nosy!

That party is so noisy that I can't sleep.

We use 'such' to modify and strengthen a noun, especially in the construction [such a + adjective + noun]:

That was such a party!

He is such a nosy person!

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

Thanks for this apportunity that you give us to learn English.
My question: Do you have any test to evaluate our English level and then give us a instruction to start learning english.
Thanks to your reply in advance.

Hi Hossein Ahmad,
I'm afraid we don't have an online test at the moment, but it is something we're working on.

Many thanks for your great website. I would like to suggest changing the place where is written www.britishcouncil.org/learnenglish, in the support pack , to the unmarked part of page of  transcipt,  because it is mixed up the reading. Thanks.
