feeling good to learn english

I registered this website because ı want to talk with someone in english .. I want to make progress in english..I thinkthis  website is very helpful for us...please help me:) 

Hi,
Should be there "of" instead of "od" in the sentence: " There are hundreds od lovely dogs....."       in section 1 exercise 1 ? or maybe " hundreds odd lovely dogs" ? :) or maybe "od" means something as I am not a native speaker
And there is a small "i" instead of "I" in the same exercise above the sentence with "od".
I really don't want  to bother you with these typing errors, I only want your great  and so helpfull website to be perfect!
Great to learn with all of you,
Lenka

Hi,
Are you trying to print the interactive exercises or the pdf printable downloads? The pdf files should print fine on A4 - let me know if one document doesn't.

Hello everybody. Today I want to talk about my favorite sportsman. His name is Carlos Valderrama. He's from Colombia. He's Colombian. He played football for several years in Colombia and France I think, actually a I don't remember if he played football in another country. He was very famous for his long blond hair and he always played with number ten shirt. Do you know him? bye.

From Colombia

Hi, I know who he is. I Just wanted to confirm to you that "el pibe" valderrama also played in US, He made great goals in his team.

Hello, my name is Borislav. I'm from Bulgaria.
I write about the story of the Olu of Didier Drogba. Olu said, that before Drogba went to Chelsea has played in small teams.
Drogba went to Chelsea from Marseille.
The team from Marseille has won the European Cup, and Chesley is not yet.
Olympic is a small team?!
With Best wishes!
Borislav

Hi, Borislav. I'm agree that Olympic is not very small team. But Chelsea is great club. I like Arsenal but I think so and I can't say the same thing about Marseille. As well the French championship is not the most powerfull. It's weaker then English actually.
