I couldn't be more grateful to the British Council LearnEnglish staff for all these great activities!!!
Invaluable support for a teacher, thank you for your dedication!!!

Prepositions and verb tenses are always my weak points. Thank you for these tasks. I hope you can add more exercises like this in the future. (:

Again, many thanks!

Hello hanh Tran,

I'm not sure if we have any pages devoted to those specific topics, but you can find a wide range of topics related to professional interests and business in our Professionals Podcasts (this page) and our Business and Work section (this page). You might also want to look at our Business Magazine (this page).

I hope those links are helpful.

Best wishes,

Hello zaris,

Welcome to LearnEnglish!  I'm not sure I completely understand your question, but I can give you some general tips on using LearnEnglish.

First all, I suggest that you explore the site.  Use the links at the top of the page to go to different sections and see what kinds of materials are available.  Get a feel for the level of difficulty of different sections so you can see what will be most useful to you at the moment.

Then start with something that is not too high a level. Many users find Elementary Podcasts Series Three a good place to start.  Work through the episodes, and remember that you can use the transcript to help you, or to read and listen to at the same time after you have done the exercises. As you work, it's important to keep a vocabulary notebook. Organise it by topic ('work', 'family', 'food', etc.) and add words and phrases to it as you go through the material.  Test yourself regularly to see if you remember the words.

Finally, practise English every day, even if it's only for 10 minutes. You can study the vocabulary you've recorded, listen to an Elementary Podcasts episode again, or if you have a friend who is also learning English, practise speaking with them. You can also practise by yourself, just speaking English when you are alone at home or at work.  This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English in the 'real' world you are ready and confident.

I hope those suggestions are helpful to you.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
