Hi,
I am Tuan.
I am in Vietnam. Now, I've learned English for 1 year.
How long have you learned English?
May I ask you: where are you from?
I am a new member
Nice to meet you!

I want to ask why some words end with " ` " like cafe`
if i write cafe with out "`" , will it be wrong?

Hello hayaalqasem,

Words like this are borrowings from other languages - from French in this example. When a foreign word enters into common use in English it is first used as a foreign word, then slowly becomes anglicised (made more English) over time.  Ultimately, the word may change its spelling.  'Cafe' is a good example of this, and it is common to see it spelt today without the accent.

Best wishes,
