Pronouns

 

Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

sir,
I would like to know whether it is "parted from" or "parted with" from the sentence below and please give me an explanation
" When she parted_____her parents, her eyes were full of tears".

Hello gatti pavan kumar,

Have you looked 'part' up in our dictionary? There is a handy search box on the lower right side of the page - be sure to scroll down to the end of the page, to the entry with 'part' as a verb. 'part with' is used with objects, and means to get rid of them, whereas 'part from' is used with people, and refers to leaving them.

hi sir, can you please help me regarding improvements of English speaking? while I try to speak in English feel lack of vocabulary issue, my vocabulary is not strong so can you suggest how to improve that.

Hi ddhiraj,

To improve your vocabulary it's important to do three things:

  • see new and familiar words and phrases in context
  • note down new items in an organised manner
  • practise, revise and review new items systematically

The Listen & Watch section on LearnEnglish is a great source of reading and listening materials and working through this section will help you with the first point. The more you read - magazines and newspapers, journals, short stories, novels, poems... in fact, whatever genre or kind of writing interests you - the better, and you can find an inexhaustible supply on the internet, of course.

We also recommend very strongly that you start (if you haven't already) a personal vocabulary book. Organise it by topic (sports, work, appearance, finance etc) and add new words and phrases to it as you listen, watch and read in English.

Once you have built up a small collection of items in your vocabulary book, you can use it to test yourself so you can see how well you memorise the items. Cover the meanings and/or examples and try to recall them, or to translate the words and phrases into your own language.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello , First of all thank you very much for your amazing help
And I'm an English student in the University of Cadi Ayyad and i wanted to Ask you for some guidance ! Cause i can't find the Subjects that i need

Hello Mehdi9,

I'm not sure what kind of assistance you need - can you be more specific? Please remember that we can provide help related to the material here on LearnEnglish, but we cannot really give any advice about your university. For that, you will need to speak directly with your university representatives.

Best wishes,

Hello admin, I am zero in English. I want to start learning from begins. I will do every act like reading, Listening, exercise as you will advise me. Please guide me. Waiting for your help.. Thank you.

Hi yaduvansheesr,

There are many ways to learn English, and you should use the method that works best for you. Whatever you do, it's important that you work on a regular schedule - every day if possible, or if not, at least three or four days a week would be best, even if for only a short time.

I'd suggest you try the Elementary Podcasts. Start with series 3 episode 1. First, listen to the one or two sections of the podcast, and then read the transcript (under Instructions & downloads) as you listen. Then do the exercises that correspond to the sections you've listened to. Take a note of the grammar there, and if you have questions about it, look for an explanation in our Grammar Reference. If you can't find it there, or have questions that aren't answered, by all means please ask us in the comments.

To work on your speaking skills, you could also choose some useful phrases from what you've listened to and imitate their pronunciation - repeat those words and phrases many times. Pronounce whole phrases, not just words, because the pronunciation of words in English changes according to context. Repeat these phrases until they're relatively easy to say. Write these phrases and other new vocabulary in a vocabulary notebook, and organise them by topic (e.g. food, family, travel, etc.).

With this method, you work on vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening and reading all together, and generally more people find it more interesting.

Have a go at it and let us know how you get on!
