Hello aamir,

I'm glad that you found the page helpful. You might have noticed that your email address did not appear in your comment. This is because it's against our House Rules to include such personal information in your comments. Don't worry about it - I just wanted to explain!

Sir i joined this learnEnglish yesterday what could you suggest for me to start with as a beginner.

Hello bashfaragay,

Welcome to LearnEnglish!  There is no set starting point here on LearnEnglish so you can choose whatever is most useful or interesting for you personally.  However, many of our users find starting with our Elementary Podcasts Series 3 very useful, so you might want to try that.

I hope you have a great time here and improve your English with us.  Remember that you can use the comments section on each page if you have any problems and we'll be happy to try to help you.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team

What means " I'm thinking of popping the question"?

Hello mirjanas,

As I said in answer to several of your earlier similar questions, there is a link on the right of most pages to the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search tool.  Although we do help with vocabulary questions from time to time (and I explained two for you yesterday), we simply do not have time to act as online dictionaries for all our users, especially as there are numerous real online dictionaries available for you to use.

Best wishes,
