Pronouns

Pronouns are words that take the place of nouns. We often use them to avoid repeating the nouns that they refer to. Pronouns have different forms for the different ways we use them. 

Read clear grammar explanations and example sentences to help you understand how pronouns are used. Then, put your grammar knowledge into practice by doing the exercises.

Hello, take the level test, say that I am in the intermediate but I feel that in grammar I am not very good. Is it recommendable to start from the basics?

Hi Carolina19
It's difficult to give you specific advice without knowing you better, but in general I'd encourage you to start with reading or listening resources. We have a lot of new pages at the B2 level in our Skills section (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/skills), for example, or there are lots of videos at the intermediate level in the Video zone (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/video-zone) and Word on the Street (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/word-street) and audio in LearnEnglish podcasts (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/learnenglish-podcasts). Whenever you find some grammar that you don't understand or that you want to review, you can probably find it here in the English Grammar section. If you can't find more information about it, please feel free to ask us for help in the Comments section on the page you are working on and we'll help you.
But if you want to focus on grammar from the beginning, this section is a good place to start. Please note that the pages here are not organised in a sequence, but rather by topic. If you have trouble finding something, please let us know.
I hope this helps orient you. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask us.
All the best

Sir ,
Please let me know about Infinitives ?

hello
how can i find my all comments and replies from you.

Hello INS-PRAKASH,
New comments appear on the last page of the comments section once they have been approved, so if you go there you will see your comment. All comments are read before they are published, so there is usually a short delay between posting your comment and it appearing on the site.
You can also go to your account page and click on 'Track'. This should show recent activity.

Hello sir please help to clarify,
Which one is correct?

The team are divided in its opinion.
The team are divided in their opinions.

Hello Akash Rathore
The first one is not consistent and is not grammatical. 'are' as a plural verb and 'its' as a singular determiner are in conflict.
The second one is OK. 'The team is divided in its opinions.' is also correct.
