Thank you for the page you referred me to learn from but I still want you to hit the nail on the head.
Which is the correct one among the two?
1. I was the one that saw you yesterday
2. I am the one that saw you yesterday

Hello EmyM,

As it says on the page AdamJK referred to: 'If you are talking about the past but you mention something that is still true you could use a present tense form to show you agree that it is true, or a past tense form'. Whether to use 'was' or 'am' is up to you.

Hi nguyen thi phuong,

Different people prefer different methods, but in general it's important to make a consistent effort. It's more effective to spend 20 minutes every day studying or working on English than it is to spend 5 hours just one day per week. Many people also find it useful to commit themselves to a schedule for a period of time.

I'd suggest you look at the Elementary Podcasts series 3. Start at episode 1. If you don't understand everything at first, don't worry! Listen to one section of it several times, and use the transcript to help you understand it as you listen. It might take you several days to listen to all of the episode and to complete the exercises, but that's fine. You should also write down new words and expressions so that you can study them.

If at the end of this work, you feel you've learned something, then continue with this method for episode 2, and so on. If it's too difficult or if you need some help, please write to us and we'll do our best to help you.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Why not Russian Language?

Hello,
Are you asking why there isn't a Russian version of LearnEnglish?
I think my colleagues at British Council Russia are working are one, but it's quite a big job and they're quite a small team.
