Hi kshahab235,

There is no set starting point for LearnEnglish. I'd recommend you first take some time to explore the site using the menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.). Then read the advice on our Help page. I think that will help you, but if not, please don't hesitate to ask us for advice.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello, Everyone?
