Hello anitasamyani,

There is no rule about this, but we use the exclamation mark to show that a sentence is amazing or surprising in some way, or (in dialogue) to show that it was said with a particularly emotional tone. It is considered bad style to overuse exclamation marks.

OK. Thanks
nd while sending mails of attached .
i m writing that - sending you herewith file abc.
Can you suggest me more options while sending files through mail to suppliers .

Hello anitasamyani,

There are different ways of doing this, but one common way is to say something like 'Please see the attached file'. By the way, you might want to look through our English for Emails section.

All the best,

Thank you very much The LearnEnglish Team.

I've finished Big City Small World. Which one is convenient to next.

Thank you again,

Saagii.

Hello saagii,

There's no fixed order in which to do things. Try Elementary Podcasts to see if that suits you, or perhaps (a little more challenging) Word on the Street. The most important thing is to choose something you enjoy, so that your motivation will be high.

Hello Peter.

Thank you very much for your advise. I've chosen Elementary Podcasts.

Best wishes,

Saagii.

Dear Kirk,
Thanks so much for your advice. I appreciate your cooperation with English learners. Have a good day and happy life.

Dear Peter,
Thanks for your reply to my message. I know audio is part of the video. in our Organization watching video is not allowed. only i can follow audio and text. suppose if i could not follow WOTS, what might be next step? as i did elementary podcast and big city small world.

Hello Omer Gul,

I'd suggest that you look at the Magazine, Business Magazine and Professionals Podcasts. Not all of the articles have audio, but many of them do. You might also want to consider listening to the news in English from time to time, for example the BBC World Service Radio.

Good luck!

All the best,

Dear English Team,
i have completed along with paper based exercises both elementary podcasts and big city small world. Now unfortunately words on the street series does not have audio. what's your advice to start?. I would like to follow systematically your web site in order to learn proper English language.
