Hello Alan,
I don't know this word. Where did you see it? (or do you mean 'pregnant'?)

I'd like to visit London. London is a capital of England, one of the country of the UK. It is situated in the south-east of England. It is full of sightseeings: museums, galleries, ancient places. For example, The Houses of Parliament, parts of these buildings are more than 900 years old. This is where the laws of the UK are created. People are tolerant, enchanting. I'd like to talk to them about their country. What they like to eat, how they spend their holidays. London is really worth visiting.

This year I visited a very amazing cave called Emine Bair Khosar.It is situated on the lower slopes of Chatyr Dagh, the second highest mountain on the Crimea peninsula. I can't find such words to describe the beauty of this place. This is the unique world of stone flowers, frozen in falling waterfalls, little lakes, graceful pillars, figures of beasts and fairy-tales heroes. All of this splendid furnishing is created by water from the mineral calcite. Morover scientists found here bones of the deers, wooly rhinoceros, cave bear, little mamoth and other beasts.

hello everybody, I will try to write some words, but I not very good anymore in English...I spoke it 20 years ago !! the reason why I would like to try to make some exercise with all of you
I love pets. I lost my dog in the month may, he has 15 year old,it was a labrador, a black one. Since he died, a cat is coming in my garden but I can't love him as my dog, they are very independant, I can't reach him. I think we have to meet us slowly, may be one day we will be the best frieds :)

I will tell you about Montpellier, it’s lovely place in the south of France.
It’s  famous for his students and tourists. This place is well known for his universities. Students come from other countries but mostly from France. A lot of tourists come here  to for the beaches but also to visit lovely places around Montpellier. The city is between the sea and the mountains. At the evening, a lot of festivities take place outside, because the weather is very nice,  warm, like this summer it was very hot. I live here since 20 years now, otherwise I ‘m come from Belgium and the weather is quite more cold and especially in the winter.

This will be very good. I have a wish to make an exchange in Montpellier, I've already heard good things about the city.
Greetings, from Brazil!

Hello,
I prefer dogs because they are faithful and loving but i have to admit that cats are much more intelligent than dogs however, if i had the opportunity i would choose a dog.

Hello Ibrahim,
I'm a bit confused by your comment. Series 1 Episode 1 is here. What do you mean by 'our web site' - do you mean LearnEnglish?
