Hello Rosie Phan,

It's great that you want to practise your English so much! However, I'm afraid our House Rules ask users not to share their personal details. This is for data protection reasons and is a part of British Council policy.

Well. I haven't read the policy clearly. I'm sorry about that. I'll find another way. Thanks for letting me know that.

Hello Rosie,

No worries! You might want to check out our Facebook page -- from time to time there are links to sites that you might find useful.

Friend

I just want to ask a question !!

Is it a correct sentence : The general information was needed to be updated. !!!??

Hello HootanB,

'was' is not needed in your sentence, as 'need' is not passive here.

All the best,
Kirk

Dear Kirk

Is it a specific rule in this case ?! sometime I see (be+past participle)/Passive sentence in the sentence and in rare situations , I see without be but the verb has past participle form.

Thank you in advance for your reply

Hello HOOTANB,

'Needed' here is not a past participle but a regular past simple form. It is followed by a passive infinitive ('to be + past participle).

I need to build a wall [need + active infinitive]

The wall needs to be built [need + passive infinitive]

It is possible to use 'need' in a passive construction but it sounds quite unnatural in many contexts:

Building a wall is needed / The bulding of a wall is needed

You can also use a gerund after need to give a passive meaning:

The wall needs building [need + gerund]

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for LearnEnglish program that I can meet everyone here!
I am from Shanghai China now living in Auckland New Zealand. I think my listening skill is not too bad as I can fully understand above dialogue without read text. My problem is I don't know how to build up vocabulary quickly particularly in politics or economy, because I don't have many chance to reach these topics in the daily basic life. I don't have confidence to talk to the people as my vocabulary is so limited.
Today is my second day to LearnEnglish, I am sure I will be find more to improve my vocabulary.
This is a excellent program! It will be with me for the rest of life.

Hi there, I'm Vagner from Brazil.
I loved everything in the episode. The kind of caring the girls have with each other it's so cute.
