Hello archit jain,

Have you seen our Grammar Reference? There are lots of resources that could be useful to you there. Grammar is also explained in context in the Language Focus videos of our Word on the Street videos.

There is a British council here in Muscat the capital of Sultanate of Oman , but it is very , very expensive , and most of the people here say that .

Hello Nagm,

I can't really comment on that, not knowing anything about the prices and costs in Oman, but I can tell you that LearnEnglish is a British Council service and it is provided absolutely free of charge for all users.

Best wishes,

My level is intermediate as per yours online test. I communicate easily through email/chat and understand well all writing conversation in basic daily uses. But don't understand while someone speaking.

How much time I need to see/listen video/audio for perfect as good listener?

How much time I need to learn daily for good listener and speaker?

Hello skumar1st,

I'm afraid it's impossible for us make such a prediction - it really depends on what kind of learner you are, the way in which you study, how much you study and many other factors that we are unfamiliar with. If you work with a teacher or tutor for a time, they might be able to give you a better idea. Good luck!

Best wishes,
