We use 'sound' with adjectives:

  • I think I should meet him. He sounds nice.
  • I'm trying to sound mature. You know, more grown up.

We use 'sound like' with nouns and pronouns:

hi
i am umair from pak-is-tan ,any body present here who can guide me on this web,i am unable to fine any conversation topic tutorials of learning english language

Hi umair,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! My first recommendation to you is to explore the site. Below I'll explain a method to use Word on the Street to work on your speaking, but first it'd also be good for you to see what's here by following the links in the menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.).

You can learn a lot on your own by using Word on the Street, the Elementary Podcasts, Big City Small World and the How to... videos. First, listen to an episode, and then read the transcript as you listen. Then work through the exercises that correspond to the sections you've listened to.

To work on improving your pronunciation and fluency, choose some useful phrases from what you've listened to and imitate their pronunciation - repeat those words and phrases many times. Pronounce whole phrases, not just words, because the pronunciation of words in English varies according to context. Repeat these phrases until they're relatively easy to say.

This is slow work, but you'll be building up a repertoire of phrases that you'll be able to use fluently in your conversations.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Hello. Why does Ashlie say 'Just the one card, Stephen?' instead of 'Just one card,Stephen?'
Why 'the' is necessary?

Hello,

It's not necessary - Ashlie just uses it for emphasis.

Hi ! What are you talking about please !

why barry runs away when he saw ashli ? i think it's funny appearance.

Undoubtedly it is a funny appearance.
The man ran away because he expected to meet a woman of his age as her description featured. He found a young woman he thought it was a joke.

thanks dear i answers on the questions after several attempets but in the end succeeded so, we're need more vidos with questions .

Thanks again!
Nice act!

Stephen is very funny and Ashlie is a lovely girl. Study English is more happy and interesting with their help. I am their fan. :D
