Hello Menasra,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! My first suggestion would be to 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.

Then start with something that is not too difficult. Many users find the Elementary Podcasts Series 3 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.  This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English with others you are ready and confident.

Good luck!

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
