I,m from Egypt, related to the pet's matter in our country it depends on the family customs, some times you'll find families encourage having pets and the others not, like my Mom that's because they scare her.

Hello Althafali,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! We don't offer a chat facility here but we do have some suggestions for improving your speaking on our Help page. You'll also see there that we ask users not to post or ask for personal contact information such as Facebook names, Skype names and so on. This is because we have some users who may be under 18 years of age and so must be careful with such personal data (see our House Rules for more information).

Best wishes and I hope you have a great time here on LearnEnglish,


The LearnEnglish Team
