Hello jeff93,

It's great that you want to practise speaking English with other people, but I'm afraid it's against our House Rules to share personal information (such as your phone number, email address, Skype ID, etc.) on LearnEnglish – that's why yours has been crossed out. 

Best regards,

He has the lyrics tuned and sings.Does it mean,he has tuned the lyrics by someone and sings?

Hello Tintin,

I'm afraid 'He has the lyrics tuned and sings' doesn't make sense to me. It may be correct in some varieties of English, but I don't understand what it means.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello everybody i'm new here can you help me out???

Hello Ixan stathom,

Welcome! I'd recommend you read our Help page, where you can find advice on how to use LearnEnglish. It's also a good idea to spend some time exploring the site by using the menu at the top (Home, Listen&Watch, etc.). Finally, you can use the Search box (on the right side of the page) to look for specific grammar, topics, etc.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
