Dear AnnF,
- I notice that some moderators aren´t from England. For example: - You´re from Spain. How does it works? A Spanish woman works for the Britsh Council?  Adam,  another moderator is from Poland!  I´m confused!

Hi Távora,
I live in Bilbao, Spain and work here as a teacher of English, and have done so now for many years, although I originally come from the UK. As Adam says, the British Council has teaching centres all over the world with many native speaking teachers like me working for them. Do you have one where you live?

Dear Ann and Adam,
- Thank you for all informations. I didn´t know how the The British Council systems works. It´s very interesting. Sincerely I don´t  know how many English teacher from the Britsh Council there are in Brazil. I´m going to find out it. Taking advantage of opportunity I wanna say that you both are the best and studing using this website have been very useful to me. As I told you in a previous opportunities, I have obtained a lot of knowledge since I began to access this website.  My great chalenge is improve my English skills everyday because I don´t have an English teacher near to me. 
Thank you for supply our needs!
Best Wishes.

The country next to our names is where we live, not where we are from.
I live in Poland now, although last year I was living in Korea. Many English teachers live in different countries around the world.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hi dear friends,
Im from Vietnam..I love English and i wanna make friends all the world ..Nice to talk with all you guys

Dear Members,
- Some students have been requesting help about  English improvement but they don´t answer e-mails wich other classmates send us.  I don´t understand. Would be it shame? Would be lack of time to access the Britsh Council to verify theirs emails? I think that is a great opportunity to improve ours skill but I realize that people don´t do it with frequency.  Could anybody try to explain that  problem?

Tavora,don't mention it!
I study English from school years, now I study it at university, but I understand that I don't still know  many things. One of good methods is to watch films in English, without subtitles. I am agree with you that at studying of any  language we do every day a step forward. For beginners it is possible to advise - reading. Especially aloud. Because only when we hear our voice saying those or other words in a foreign language we can remember them. Now besides English I learn the Korean language. It is very difficult))))
All beginning to study English I want to wish patience and not to stop before difficulties!
Tavora, how long have you already studied English language? And whence has heard about this site?
You know I`m not  expert, but i praise your knowledge of English language)))
Best wishes,Feruza :-))))

I think the main reason is that many people are modest.
Do you divide my point of view?:)

 Hi Feruza,
- At first I´d like to thank your attention.  Yes, !! I agreed with you. People are very shy but it´s necessary to win some obstacle in our way of life. To reach our goals it´s necessary to be confident and believe in ourself. Don´t think that is easy to me study a bit of English every day.  I know I need to improve my English skills and I know how much I do lot of mistakes but one of the way to develop us is lose the shame. Another point of view is to practice a lot  and do many kinds of exercices like to watch TV, Read articles and so on. It´s not a easy task to forget our fears. 
Let me know more about your opinions. Keep in touch!

How many people, wishing to improve the English! Let's create community on Facebook all users of our britishcouncil site! Or it already is, and I don't know?))))
