could you please tell me on which situations we are using ! symbol.

Hello anitasamyani,

There is no rule about this, but we use the exclamation mark to show that a sentence is amazing or surprising in some way, or (in dialogue) to show that it was said with a particularly emotional tone. It is considered bad style to overuse exclamation marks.

OK. Thanks
nd while sending mails of attached .
i m writing that - sending you herewith file abc.
Can you suggest me more options while sending files through mail to suppliers .

Hello anitasamyani,

There are different ways of doing this, but one common way is to say something like 'Please see the attached file'. By the way, you might want to look through our English for Emails section.

All the best,

Thank you very much The LearnEnglish Team.

I've finished Big City Small World. Which one is convenient to next.

Thank you again,

Saagii.

Hello saagii,

There's no fixed order in which to do things. Try Elementary Podcasts to see if that suits you, or perhaps (a little more challenging) Word on the Street. The most important thing is to choose something you enjoy, so that your motivation will be high.

Hello Peter.

Thank you very much for your advise. I've chosen Elementary Podcasts.

Best wishes,

Saagii.

Dear Kirk,
Thanks so much for your advice. I appreciate your cooperation with English learners. Have a good day and happy life.

Dear Peter,
Thanks for your reply to my message. I know audio is part of the video. in our Organization watching video is not allowed. only i can follow audio and text. suppose if i could not follow WOTS, what might be next step? as i did elementary podcast and big city small world.
