Hi mysa72,

There is no single way to study - different techniques work for different people. If what you are doing is improving your English then I would say keep doing it.

For ideas on how to study and suggestions, take a look at our Help page.

why u guys don't select a topic to talk about or to write about on a specific page may be facebook.I think it'll help us in improving our skills............And one more question do u have any skype contact source???? please reply and I'm waiting for reply ............Thanks

Hello ali huzaifa,

Thanks for your suggestion – we'll take it into consideration. We're a very small team with a lot of work so I'm afraid there's no way to contact us by Skype. In any case, our House Rules prohibit the sharing of such personal information here in the comments.

Just so you know, we monitor every comment before it is published here. This is the reason that your other comment that was very similar to this one was not published, and also why your comments were not immediately visible. We check and publish comments several times per day, so it won't take too long for yours to become visible.

Best wishes,

How can I listen this text ?

Hello Eveiveneg,

You should see a silver/grey control panel for the listening near the top of the page, with a button marked 'play' on it.  Press that button and the recording should play.

how many times i should listen.i hadnot make mistakes,had i?

Hello icheer,

There is no rule as to how many times you can, or should, listen to the recording. The first time you do the exercises try listening once, but after that you can listen as many times as you want - as long as you find it useful, in fact.  It can be very helpful to listen with the transcript (so you can read as well as listen) and then try saying the text along with the recording.  This can help you to develop speed and fluency, to feel where pauses naturally occur in spoken English and to develop the natural rhythm of English in your speech.

Best wishes,
