Hello thutrangtong,

I'm afraid it's going to be quite some time, so in the meantime, I wanted to also recommend our Facebook page, where you can have more interaction with other users. There are also new ideas on how to improve your English, including your speaking, so be sure to take a look!

All the best,

Hello Ratihpus,

I'm afraid that sharing personal information such as email addresses of Facebook accounts goes against our House Rules so even if you get a reply, you won't be able to see such information.

There's some advice on improving your speaking on our Help page which you might find useful.

Best wishes,

Hi Qaziabibi,

I'm afraid we don't offer any kind of certification at LearnEnglish. I'd recommend the IELTS test, as it is recognised in most countries around the world.

Good!

Hi,
I am Huong from Vietnam. I am new. I want to improve my English skills. And i hope making some foreign friends in here. Give me a massge if you would like to learn English with me ! thanks .

Hi English Language Team
Would you mind explaining for me this sentence's meaning: And how they see themselves taking us there? This sentence is used in the video clip and I dont really get what Marcia means! Thank you so much!

Hi Alen Luna,

The meaning here is something like 'how they think they could achieve this'. 'See yourself doing something' means 'imagine how you would do it'. For example:

I want to be a successful writer.

Really, and how do you see yourself becoming that?

Well, first I'm going to send some short stories to publishers to see if they like them. After that...

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

Peter

I´m still starting studies on the site, but I feel like I´m improving.

Hi Team,

I watched the video and completed task 1, but I don't understant what I am supposed to do in task 2? Is this a task that I can carry out or just given information?

I am always so grateful for team's hard work and have been thinking it would be by far better if you guys could provide writing practice areas that users can continue writing stories after watching a short video clip, it would be very fun to see how creative other people from all around the world think and encourages me to make even more peculiar ideas.
Just ideas:)

Thanks,

Hi Lucie,

You're right, there's really no task to do in Task 2 - it's advice on how to write a CV. Thanks for your idea - I'll certainly add it to the list of suggestions we've received. You might want to take a look around the Magazine and Stories & Poems. There are no writing tasks there like the one you suggest, but users sometimes submit their writing for others to read and comment on.

Best wishes,
Kirk
