I used to have lots of exams and I did enjoy solving them even the hardest one. I’m hoping to start studying GCSE next year. Then getting into uni.

Dear everyone,
It depends, living with someone to trust, respect and feel comfortable is great idea, otherwise living alone would be the correct decision.
I will be glad if there’s a professor who would mark my writing ☺️

Hi Tectona,

We don't correct users' writing here, but we are happy to answer questions about English if you have any :)


LearnEnglish team

Dear Jonathan,
Thanks for you prompt response. I appreciate it. I wonder how we could know that our English is improving?
that web idea was great idea and would be supper Wow, if there is someone to encourage us by marking our answers. I understand that marking one's answer could causes shyness. But if we look at this from another point of view, it's acutely good support for those who can't afford private tutor or have no time to take private class. overall, the Learn English site is really great. Thanks for this support.
Thanks again Jonathan.

I prefer living alone. I'm an introvert, so I like my own company.

I prefer living alone to sharing house cuz I like silence and don't wanna be disturbed. Also I'm not that sociable and don't want to fix my personality to just get along with others. Don't wanna be worried about how people think of me. But only if my housemate is my bff who really understand me, sharing a house is not that bad.

If I was single, I would prefer living alone
