I feel I have missed so many days without visiting this helpful Website. I really struggled a lot to Read, Write and Speak English. Yet I have to develop my Communication Skills perfect with Correct Grammar usage. This site is really very helpful to all age group of people. Hats Off to British Council.....

Really interesting Exercises... It helps me a lot to understand the Grammar easily....

it's a real useful site !!
Where can I find high level excercises on this site ?

Hello Emel_1987,

I'm glad you like the site!  Our language (grammar) section is not organised by level but by topic, so if you choose more advanced grammar areas then the exercises will be correspondingly more difficult.

There are many exercises for higher-level learners in the Listen & Watch section of LearnEnglish.  For example, you might try the Overcooked series, or the Britain is Great series, a good challenge for you.  Similarly, our Magazine and UK Culture sections are suitable for more advanced learners.  Depending on your interests and needs, you might also be interested in our business English or academic English materials.

I hope those links are useful for you.

Best wishes,

Thank you very much i really like this site and I am sure it would help me to improve my English.

hi 
How do frame a question to this sentence " Obama is the forty fourth president of USA.

Hello shabbo22,

I'm afraid I'm not exactly sure I understand what you mean, but an example of a question based on this sentence is: "Who is the forty-fourth president of the USA?"

If you meant to ask something else, please let us know.

Best wishes,
