Hi
Iam new member and iam bigginer in English. How can i learn me English? Is there app for apple phone ? Wich video can i begin see?

Hi hadiseh,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! 

This is a question which we are often asked and, while it's difficult to give too much concrete advice as everyone's needs and abilities are different, we can make some general suggestions.

First of all, take some time to explore the site. Use the links at the top of the page to go to different sections and see what kinds of materials are available. Get a feel for the level of difficulty of different sections so you can see what will be most useful to you at the moment.

Second, start with something that is not too high a level. Many users find Elementary Podcasts Series Three a good place to begin, though this obviously depends upon your level and needs. Work through the episodes, and remember that you can use the transcript to help you, or to read and listen at the same time after you have done the exercises.

Third, keep a vocabulary notebook as you work. Organise it by topic ('work', 'family', 'food' etc) and add words and phrases to it as you go through the material. Test yourself regularly to see if you remember the words.

Finally, try to find time to practise English during your regular day. Perhaps you have a friend who is also learning English, with whom you can practise speaking, or perhaps you can practise by yourself, just speaking English when you are alone at home or at work. This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English in the 'real' world you are ready and confident.

We have a range of apps available for iPhone as well as other devices. You can see them on this page.

Hello sir my English is 50-50 mean I can speak English but my main problem is I don't have confidence .
Whenever I try to speak in English ,from inside I feel that I'll speak wrong . Another reason is I don't know when
and where I have to use particular word . For this i search from many site, some says do not read grammer in deep some says about newspaper . I am totally confused Please help me what I do in this situation .

Hello skyx,

Knowing when and where to use a particular word is a perfectly normal struggle for anyone learning another language, and is something you must work on, but also have patience with. Use a good dictionary (for example, see the Cambridge Dictionaries Online searchbox on the lower right) to look up words and see how they're used. Keep a list of words and phrases that you learn this way, and study them and try to use them in your speaking. You can also use our audio and video materials such as Word on the Street to listen to authentic English. Study the transcripts and record useful vocabulary and phrases in a notebook to study and use. And remember to be patient with yourself: learning a language takes time and practice.

If you have doubts, take a deep breath and let them go. You may well make a mistake when you speak, and of course you should speak as correctly as you can, but remember also that making mistakes is a normal part of the learning process.

I hope this helps you.

it shouldn't be "and remember that you can use the transcript to help yourself"?
