Hi guys!
I have a question,please.
What is the difference between emigrate, imigrate and migrate ?
I hope anyone answer my question
Regards

Hi polite,

You can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online to look up the meanings of words and phrases like this. Just type the word into the search window and click 'Look it up!' and you'll get a definition, examples and information regarding use and pronunciation.

In brief, 'immigrate' means to move to a country in order to live there and 'emigrate' means to leave a country to go and live elsewhere. Both of these words refer usually only to people. 'Migrate' is a little different and means the movement of people or animals from one location to another in response to external events - the need to find food, dangers such as war or natural disasters, population pressure, climate change etc.

Hi everyone i 'm staring to learn English online but i need any one native speaker in English to speak with me on Skype to practice English and speak very well because i need to find job at international company to pass in interview thanks

Hello maifathy,

I'm afraid we don't provide this kind of service, and in any case, our House Rules prohibit the sharing of personal information such as Skype IDs. I'm sure you can find an online teacher by doing an internet search for 'English Skype lessons' or something similar, but please be careful – it's important to look for trustworthy sites and always be careful with the personal information that you share.

Good luck!

Hi! every body
I have a question.what does WELL-MADE mean?
I looked for it in LONGMAN dictionary, but it doesn't exist.

Hello Pedi-left,

It's difficult to say for sure without knowing the context, but generally 'well made' refers to the quality of a product – if it is well made, it has been produced with care and quality materials.
