Task 1

Match each word with its correct meaning.



I remember there was a dictionary on this site, main page, where I can search and get in detail explanation of verbs, nouns, etc. I cannot find this anymore. Please share the link.

Hi zeeshan-hussain,

There is a problem with the dictionary link at the moment. This is caused by a problem on a different site to ours, and we are waiting for it to be fixed. Please be patient with this and hopefully it will be working soon. In the meantime you can use the Cambridge Free English Dictionary:

I am a technical professional and joined this forum to improve my writing skills. I need cooperation of you all to get my objective.

Hello Sabakar,

While you're certainly welcome to participate in the comments as much as you'd like, and you may get feedback and reactions from other users, I'm afraid we don't provide feedback ourselves, nor do we offer private tuition. There's also some general advice on improving your writing on Frequently asked questions page.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello dodo_abumarkhieh,

For advice on getting started and how to improve your fluency, amongst other things, please visit our Help page.

Certainly, a good course can help you to improve. However, the British Council can't recommend any, other than our own, so you'll have to decide yourself on that.


Best wishes,

This materials are awewome!
Is there not any way to make them downloadable? kind of printable?

Hello NoBats,

It's great to hear that you like our materials! We have a 'printer-friendly version' link on most pages but it isn't perfect for all exercises as they are interactive. You might try a screen grab on your computer - that may help.

Best wishes,
