Hi all,
I am new here and I am not sure where to start. Can anyone help me please?

hi shoba i will help you.

Hello Shoba Sekar,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! 

It's difficult to give too much concrete advice as everyone's needs and abilities are different. However, 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.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello Peter,

Thank you very much for your suggestions. They were really useful.

Have a nice day.

hi, i need to improve my English for IELTS exam, how i can do?

Hi haris01,

I can give you a couple of suggestions. First, you can use the IELTS section here on LearnEnglish. You'll find practice materials there, as well as tips and suggestions. Second, you should visit the British Council's TakeIELTS site, which is specifically designed to help people taking IELTS and which has many practice materials and practical information about the exam format and how to maximise your potential in the test.

Best wishes and good luck!

Hi !!

can someone evaluate my writing assignments in this site?????plz......

Hi Forever Yours,

I'm afraid that we are too small a team with too much work to be able to correct or otherwise assess users' writing. I'd recommend that you try to find a teacher where you live.

Best wishes,
