Thank you I understood clearly the difference between using the word really adding it before and after '' not ''

I'm really want to learn into English

Hello The LearnEnglish Team,
Would you mind to explain what is the difference between : I'm really not into opera and I'm not really into opera? because I saw there's only different place between really and not (the first and the next after "I'm").
Thanks for your explanation.
Best Wishes,

hey, I want to ask you about the grammar books. Can you please name some good and helpful English grammar books ?

Hello abixaidi,

The British Council does not recommend particular books or particular publishers, but I can suggest some things which you might bear in mind when choosing a book. First of all, think about what you want from the book.  After all, which books are best for you will depend on what exactly you want the book for.  Are you looking for a book with exercises, or a reference book?  Do you want to find something similar to the grammar section here on LearnEnglish, or something in a different style?  Something written in English or your own language?  Perhaps the best idea is for you to take a look at what is available to you locally and try to get some advice from a teacher, if possible.  If you have a smartphone then you might also have a look at our LearnEnglish Grammar App, which you can find here.

Best wishes,

my question was. i don't understand what does rob say until (1.35), someone may complete the phrasas kindly, as well as i'like to know the part(eg. 3.08-3.12).

i'm gonna keep to practising the lunguage thank to you.


hi all you, you're fantastic guys, by now i cannot help but improving my english lunguage, it's my free time, i'm making an effort heavily to get better my skill listening to. but i still have some problems.for example at (e.g. 1.05) i hear rob says: in that clip we've heard several words connected with the theatre. still (e.g. 1.13) some people find useful and easier to learn the words in Group, like a set of words. if you're learning english, where are you going to put these words to learn? in a notebook. in a notebook like this or you could use your phone and write your groups ............there .....until 1.35). i need you help.


Hello rosario70,

I'm not sure what you need help with here.  Are you asking us to write out the text of this section, or is there something in what Rob says which you do not understand and which you like us to explain?

Best wishes,

Hi, LearnEnglish Team! At 2.38 I've heard interesting phrase, but I can't understand it properly. I've heard something like that: "Then the next time you hear that language you have remembered it", is it right?
