hi, would you like to practice english with me?

Hi there,
is everyone ok? I watched the video... Let me say that it's too interesting.

Hello! I really like this video! I can't say that i'll use this method of ignoring a visit  to someone. I 'm from Ukraine and we try not to turn down invitations. We may not come to our friends only if something serious has happened. In any case I've got useful information and now i know what RSVP means. But as far as i understood, that party was going to be really boring! 

excellent tool to learn I'm pretty happy of having found this tool

hi, i'm too.
i dont know what i have to do to improve my English: listening, speaking, writing, reading. all of them are very bad. but i dont want to go to the English class because i feel the course time is very long to study. i like to learn by myself...
i usually download newspapers in the Daily mail, Podcast in this website ... to read, listen many times and translate them. but it is so bad of me to remember them. sometimes, i have written down them again.
it is happy if you share with me a little experience of English study.
thanks you.
