Hello Dear,
I think this course is very useful for improving language skills. I have difficult to get IELTS band 7.Could you help me?

Hello Hanwin,

I would recommend you check out TakeIELTS, where you can find all kind of information, advice and even some free practice materials. Good luck!

Hi,
I think these online resources are very useful for practicing and improving your English level. The greatest difficulty for me is the pronunciation; Even the grammar has difficulty. What you recommend me to learn better.

Hello matteo,

We're glad to hear you find our site useful and appreciate you telling us this! There is some advice on how to use LearnEnglish for different purposes on our Frequently asked questions page.

Although pronunciation is not a topic that is explicitly mentioned there, if you follow the advice on improving your speaking, your pronunciation will also improve. Basically, the idea is to use our audio and video materials as models for you to imitate. It's important to practise pronouncing words and phrases -- especially phrases, as an important part of pronunciation is intonation (the 'music' of a language). Say them again and again until they feel more comfortable in your mouth.

This can be hard work, and it is slow at first. You might want to see Roberto81's comment for a bit of inspiration. If you keep up with this kind of work, it will get easier and easier and your pronunciation will improve drastically. 

Good luck!

All the best,

Hi,
I teach English to adults here in France and I think your resources are very well done. My problem is that the building where the lessons are held is not equipped with Wi-Fi and so I need to download most of the material on to my lap-top in order to use it. However, I cannot download the audio. Is there something I can do about it?
Thanks and have a nice day.
Manuel.

Hello Manuel,

I'm glad you find our materials useful, but I'm afraid our videos -- or even just the audio of a video -- are not available for download for legal reasons. I wonder if our Elementary Podcasts might be useful for you. Series 3 and 4 are at an A2/B1 level, which is a bit higher than Starting Out (at the A1/A2 level). The advantage of Elementary Podcasts is that all the episodes can be downloaded for free, and there are a lot of exercises for each episode as well. Big City Small World is also at the A2/B1 level and also has audio available for download.

I hope this helps you.

All the best,
Kirk
