This video is interesting because I always make mistakes when I speak future plans, can I practice this advice or improve my english speaking? Do you have any idea?
Thanks a lot.

Hello P_Moreno,

There's some advice on how to improve your speaking on our Help page, which I'd suggest you try. And if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask them.

Hi thulja,

It's difficult to give too much concrete advice as everyone's needs and abilities are different. However, we can make some general suggestions.

LearnEnglish is not a course. Apart from the episodes in particular series, such as Big City Small World or You're hired, the material on LearnEnglish has no particular order, in part because that makes it easier for users with different levels and aims to use it. Think about your own needs and what you are stronger and weaker at, and think also about what you need English for. Then, as we said above, take some time to look through the different parts of the site using the navigation menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.) so you can find materials which suit those needs. Get a feel for the level of difficulty of different sections so you can see what will be most useful to you at the moment.

Second, start with something that is not too high a level. Many users find Elementary Podcasts Series Three a good place to begin, though this obviously depends upon your level and needs. Work through the episodes, and remember that you can use the transcript to help you, or to read and listen at the same time after you have done the exercises.

Third, keep a vocabulary notebook as you work. Organise it by topic ('work', 'family', 'food' etc) and add words and phrases to it as you go through the material. Test yourself regularly to see if you remember the words.

Finally, try to find time to practise English during your regular day. Perhaps you have a friend who is also learning English, with whom you can practise speaking, or perhaps you can practise by yourself, just speaking English when you are alone at home or at work. This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English in the 'real' world you are ready and confident.

I can't say how long you should spend studying, of course: there is no correct answer to this! It depends upon how much time you have available. In general, the more time you can spend learning, the more you will learn but it's important to maintain enthusiasm and motivation - too much can reduce this and make what should be enjoyable into a chore.

I hope those suggestions are useful.

Best wishes,
