Intermediate: B1


I like travelling by train but I have never had any problem like that.

I can say, it was very useful for me!

I like travelling by train very much. On the train you can do many different things. For instance you can read a book, talk to other people and make friends,you can simply look through the window and enjoy of wonderful views.

Hello mehdi1010

We wrote out some general tips on improving your English on our Frequently asked questions page and I would recommend trying those first. When you try the tips, pay attention to see which one work best for you and use those more than the others. I'd also encourage you to try challenging pages -- maybe start working with a few pages at B2 level. Be patient with yourself, though!

I'm afraid I don't know enough about certification in Iran to be able to give you much help with that process, but in any case, I'm sure that improving your level will be a good strategy in general.

If we can give you any other advice about a more specific issue, please let us know. Good luck!

All the best

Is there only one video for intermediates

Do you mean if there is only one conversation vedio in different levels (one for each). I want to ask the same question myself.

Hello again BING70

We are working on more videos, but for the moment, there is only for each level here on LearnEnglish. You can find a few more in the LearnEnglish Teens Speaking section, though, so I'd also recommend taking a look there.

All the best
