Hi I want to speak English very well because I will have to give interview in college from next semester so I want how I should give the introduction in interview

Hello yadsanjay,

It's difficult for me to give you specific advice without knowing you, but I'd recommend practicing your speaking in general, and also preparing for university admissions interviews. For the latter, I'd suggest searching the internet for 'how to university admissions interview' and reading some of the advice and viewing some of the videos that result. For your speaking, I'd recommend using our audio and video materials such as Word on the Street and the Elementary Podcasts.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

hi Mai my name is laleh ,

Studying abroad , a dream I was trying to realize it , I didn’t study for long time overseas , but I went in 02 weeks training course to south Korea , it was very exciting experience , during that time I visited many places and shopping centers , I learnt many things about their customs and we find a host people , my only problem was food , people there eat very strange food that I couldn’t’ eat like them ,
If I study in other country , I think I’ll choose to live with my fellow students although I can cope living with a host family, but with my friends I feel free ,we can cook the food we like .

It was grate experience.good luck

Thank you!!

Life comprises of lots of different exposures we can get, so studying abroad is one of them and even the best one to be familiar with different cultures, languages....etc which give human a stunning civilization. In my opinion, being with different people, languages and religion in different countries can be tough to anyone without second language that is English language. I don't wanna discuss this topic because i have never studied abroad so far, but if i am going to study oversea, I will do all necessary things that help me to set my goals. For example, making friend is vital point to share ideas and study one another. every one mustn't look at her or him self like an only stranger in each country, even though there are many ones like you,so student should rely on themselves to do anything they want.

Hello, the girl said: "I went to a host family" and she pronounced the "a" like "ey". I am just a little bit confused about her way of saying the letter a. Thank you!!

Hello Aaron,

There are many different accents in English and their pronunciation of sounds varies quite a lot. The stressed form of 'a' is indeed pronounced /eı/, in contrast to the (much more common) unstressed/weak form /Ə/. In this sentence /Ə/ would be much more likely, but the speaker is from Hong Kong and her English, though very good, is not perfect (she misses out 'the' before 'UK' in the first sentence, for example).
