Hello delilah1,

Thanks for letting us know you like LearnEnglish.

The sentence you point out contains an error. Whenever the United Kingdom is used as a noun, the definite article (the) is used before it. The same is true for other nations which have a name in the plural or which have the words kingdom or republic in them - please see our definite article page for more on this.

The text and recording on this page were contributed by a student of English, and that is why there is this small error at the beginning. Thanks for pointing it out!

Best wishes,

Hi LearnEnglish Team,

Today I have registered it. I hope I would get some help from you to learn English language.

Thanks

Hello Syed,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! There are lots of resources here, and I'd encourage you to look through the different sections to get an idea of the possibilities.

Or, if you already know, for example, that you want to work on your listening or speaking, I'd suggest listening to our audio and video materials (there are several sections under Listen & Watch). There are transcripts and exercises to help you improve your listening comprehension, and you can use the audio as a model that you can imitate to learn new expressions and improve your pronunciation.

Whatever you do, it's best to try to have contact with English every day, even if it's only for a short time. Little by little, you should see that you improve!

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Hello WAVFPWQK,

  Hi every body,I am a new member here,,I have alot of troubles with english esp speaking I do alot of grammatic mistakes sometimes I can not express my self or I find difficulties and feel embarrassment when I talk with native speaker ..I am looking forward to improve my english,please correct me If wrote down mistakes..thanks  

Hi mariom,

The first thing I'd recommend is that you ignore your embarrassment when speaking with native speakers. Learning to speak another language can be really difficult, and in any case, takes time, so you must be patient with yourself and try as hard as you can.

Another thing that I think could be very useful for you is to use some of the materials in our Listen & Watch section to improve your listening comprehension (which is of course essential in speaking) and to learn new expressions and improve your vocabulary. I'd recommend you choose either the Elementary Podcasts or Big City Small World. Listen to an episode once or twice, and then listen to it again while reading the transcript. Work through the exercises, and then identify a few words and/or expressions that you want to learn. Imitate the pronunciation you hear (this means you must talk to yourself!) repeatedly over the course of several days. Gradually, you will increase your vocabulary, your mouth will become used to making different sounds, and your speaking ability should improve!
