i appreciate these podcasts.

Hi sir,
Thank you for your kind reply.

hi for everyone :-) Im SHOXRUX from Uzbekistan and I am new here I want to improve my english skill so I want to get some advise about learning english well what should I do first of all in here ? Thanks alot beforehand take care!

Hi Shoxrux,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! It might help to think of LearnEnglish as a library to browse in - there is no starting point and you are free to explore it as you wish and best suits you.

The Elementary Podcasts are a great place to start, as are the other sections under Listen & Watch, where you'll also find videos and texts with transcripts, explanations, and exercises. Or if you're more interested in business, be sure to look at our Business & Work section.

If you need any other help, please don't hesitate to ask us!

Best wishes,

yeah you friend it is very helpful for who want to learn english well :-)

hi sir,
thank you.If you can please help me to find out a teacher.It is a great help to me.

Hi Everybody, good wishes.I think this is good opportunity express oneself.

Hi Dasitha,

Perhaps one of your friends or someone in your family could help you find an English teacher where you live. If not, I would suggest asking at a local secondary school. If you still can't find a teacher, you might find an appropriate class at the British Council in Sri Lanka:

Good luck!

sir.
I have written a letter but i don't know whether it is correct or wrong(grammarticaly). I can send it to you.please correct it and send it to me and give me an address to send it.

Hello Dasitha,

I'm afraid we are too small a team to help members out in this way! It takes all of our time just answering comments, looking after the material here on the site and adding new material, and there's no way we can provide individual help of that kind. If you want someone to check your writing like that then I recommend you find yourself a teacher who will be able to go over it with you.

Best wishes,

Peter
