Language level

Yes, I do attended a six month training session on electronic circuit design. The training was for around six months starting from September last year. The institute was located around 6 km from my home and I used to attend the coaching during weekends, mostly Saturdays and Sundays.
yes i took the English class about 15 years age and that English course was every day except Fridays.and now i forgot most of them so i take part in online courses to repeat and remember.
I have some problems to understand this passage. Could you please rephrase the capitalized sentences? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ BUT, IF TEA IS A FACTOR IN THE COMBINATION LOCK, WHY DIDN’T JAPAN FORGE AHEAD IN A TEA-SOAKED INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OF ITS OWN? MACFARLANE NOTES THAT EVEN THOUGH 17TH-CENTURY JAPAN HAD LARGE CITIES, HIGH LITERACY RATES, EVEN A FUTURES MARKET, IT HAD TURNED ITS BACK ON THE ESSENCE OF ANY WORK-BASED REVOLUTION BY GIVING UP LABOUR-SAVING DEVICES SUCH AS ANIMALS, AFRAID THAT THEY WOULD PUT PEOPLE OUT OF WORK. So, the nation that we now think of as one of the most technologically advanced entered the 19th century having ‘abandoned the wheel’.

Hello amit_ck,

LearnEnglish is a site where we try to provide help on particular issues with English, but we don't provide explanations of texts from elsewhere, I'm afraid. If you have specific questions about the material on our pages (examples, explanations or tasks) then we'll be happy to help, or if you have other questions about how the language works. However, we're a small team here and it's not possible for us to answer questions like this which ask for explanations of texts from other sources.

I live in country where English is the second language so I do practicing English every day with my University classmates except Friday and Thursday
yes , i practis my english skills in private school every tusday and thursday , it's taken two houres in one classe
Yes, I do. I often do some English classes to improve my language skills, both online and offline classes, because my job sometimes requires communication in English. Besides, I love English to bits. I always meet new people and get to know each other while do classes outside of my work. I also find online classes much more convenient for me to learn English and other skills such as negotiation. Plus, doing classes outside of my work also helps me relax and gives me more power to do my work the next day.
Yes, I do. I take English lessons my free time. Also I always try to learn something and I dislike doing lazy.
At the moment, i am not doing any kind of activities but the idea is take piano classes and swimming clasess this month.
Yes I do Swimming After Finished My Work. For Every day Except Monday day . I thought swimming is best exercise to me.
Yes, I do football classes every wednesday before the college ones. I really like football and just started playing this year, such a new thing for me.
Do you do any classes outside of your work? Ans: Yes, I do. As I'm a student and part time teacher, I always try to learn something new. When I get free time, I do online class because it's interesting for me to meet different tpyes of people from all around the world. And from them, I can get many important suggestions and advice which help me very much.
no i don't do any classes outside of my work(is outside of means after also?), cuz most of time i spend on my computer games after i finished my work.
Yes I do classes outside my work . I do English classes every day for about 3 hours a day trying to improve my reading , writing , speaking and listening skills . I hope to get an EILTES high score ..
No, I don't. But I like yoga. I don't have much time to go the yoga room or to take the class. so I taught my self by watching videos on YouTube. By this way, I save time and money for practicing yoga. However, sefl-study yoga makes some movements less accurate and less effective.
Hi there, there is a very short text but I have made two mistakes in my answers: I wrongly answered on second question - I chose False, and my second mistake was when I chose True answering on sixth question, so I just wanted to notice that there is need to be more careful to details: "Every Tuesday" means Once a week, and Write to...-don't mean To Call
Hi every body. I have an English class but that takes place out of my office. I enjoy it.My class is two members, my husband and I. Our teacher let us that to take my girl to class.we don't have more time to go other classes.

That is A Nice Small Family Class with three Member. Good For you Saray But, What is your level and your husband level in English?
What type of Yoga does this class teach? I hear there are different types of yoga, like Vinyasa yoga, Ashtanga yoga, Iyengar yoga, Sivananda yoga, Yin yoga, Bikram yoga, and so on. They are good for health, I think.
This is very interesting and informative website. I have started to follow up all the lessons. Thanks
