Hello Sir,
Could you please tell me about the word "afraid"?

Hello Umar Aftab,

As I said in a reply to your other question, this is too general a question for us to answer. You can find this kind of information in a dictionary - that is what they are for! Then, if you have a specific question about a concrete example we'll try to explain.

Hi,
I'm confuse about the word "supposed" I don't know what does it mean and when it is used. Would you mind telling me about the word "supposed" with some examples?

Hello Umar Aftab,

This is a very general question which really can be answered by looking the word up in a dictionary. Have you tried looking the word up? There are many online dictionaries which will give you a definition (the meaning) and multiple examples. Then, if the examples are confusing, you can ask about a concrete example and we'll try to explain.

Hi teacher
I 'm from Vietnam. I have to listen English but I feel I do not know to start learn E with which listening I start? Pls introduce to me

Hi thanhquy1983,

The best place to start is our Help page, which you can find here. It will give you suggestions on how best to use the site as well as general advice on learning English effectively.

As far as listening goes, I would suggest starting with our Elementary Podcast series. Try a few episodes and see if the level is appropriate for you. There is an audioscript you can read as well, if you have problems understanding parts of this.

Hi I'm from Iraq I tray to learn English

Hello!Can you help me, please?
If you live out of the water too quickly,bubbles form in your blood.What does "live out" mean here?Can you explain with other words?
Students visit their ICC and take part in forums , debates.Is "ICC" Internet Computer Center or International Chamber of Commerce here?Thanks beforehand!

Hello mehinaydinli,

I'm afraid 'live out' is not correct in this sentence. The correct word(s) would be something like 'leave the water' or 'come up through the water'.

I would guess that ICC is 'International Chamber of Commerce' but I am only guessing here as this is a sentence without any context and is not one of our sentences. I'm afaid I don't have universal knowledge of the contexts of all sentences!
