hello everybody: I begin from 01 Jan 2020 to listening. I am now this lesson, I only listen and understanding, not vocabulary not grammar is that right?

please please answer me...


Hello khalid

This and the other pages in our Listening skills section provide you with exercises to help you test and better understand what you hear. This can include vocabulary and grammar sometimes, but if you want to focus on those, you might want to look at our Grammar and Vocabulary sections.

I'd also suggest that you make your own list of vocabulary and grammar that you find on the listening pages. After you listen, for example, you could read the transcript and choose 8-10 words or phrases that you didn't know before, or that you knew but would like to learn better. Write those down and review them several times a week until you've learned them.

All the best

it is difficult to me to writing an essays because i can't get references easily.

Help me about the meaning of " be kind to the trees" please

Hello daisydam,

'Be kind to the trees' is a way of reminding the listeners that printing things uses paper, which is made from trees. If the students send their work by email then it is less environmentally destructive than if they print out a paper copy.

Thank you Mr Kirk for explaning "the Tres".

The most important thing for me it`s to be in the right mood.

Thank you for the question

The difficult things in writing an essay are how to develop an idea and how to arrange a matching word.

If I am writing an essay in English , so the most difficult thing is the vocabulary.
