Thank you very very much for these useful exercises, videos and explanation British Council!! Great job!

Great Task!

I can easily understand every phrase, it's crystal clear.

I followed almost every part of the conversation and had no difficulty answering any of the questions. I learnt a new word though, 'trade press', haven't heard that before!

I'm surprising! I got all the answers right!

I do nỏ know where i can look up the new word. Or i need a distionary.

Hi berrynguyen,

There are many dictionaries that are available for free online. I would recommend the Cambridge Dictionary in particular.

All the best,
The Learn


Good morning!
I'm Diana from Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam.
I understand almost all the English conversations I listen to, however when speaking I face so many problems with speaking confidently and I get confused. I forget the words, structure of sentences, pronunciations, ets...
How could I deal with this situation?
How could remember structure of sentences?
What advices you suggest me to develop my vocabulary?
Thank you in advance.
Have a good day!

Hi Diana
If you understand what you listen .. The a great job and very good step.
Second problem is because you make you brain structure and remember the words. it is very hard to do this task (High Processing). You have to do mainly two things 1- the test yourself with expression and widely used words. 2- Speak a lot even if you make mistake and it will be very good if you record your speak.
