Hi I regesterd into this website so that I can improve my English skills.and hope that you will give me every thing that I wants.thank you for accepting my permission!


Could some one temme when and where to drop the words 'the' and 'that'. I do have a good reading habit but cant't really figure this out . I Have gone through the articles on the usage of words 'The' and 'that' but the dropping !


Hello ganeshcharms,

Your question is very general and it's not really possible for us to write long detailed explanations of particular grammar points like this - that is what the grammar pages are for, after all! Perhaps you have a particular example in mind - if you can post an example it would make it much easier to provide really relevant and useful information for you.

Best wishes,

Hi teacher

I m Anurag from India, I want to my speaking good in english how can i do this?

Hello Anurag!

That's a big question! Practising your English speaking can be tricky, but here are a few suggestions.

  • Use the comments section here to practice grammar and vocabulary. It's writing, but still useful.
  • Try to record yourself. Choose some of the discussion questions from our site or make up your own, and record your answers on your computer or phone. Play back your recording – what mistakes did you make? What do you like about your answer?
  • Keep listening to our recordings. One of the best ways to improve speaking... is listening!
  • Finally, remember you don't have to have a native speaker to talk to. Maybe a friend or colleague wants to talk English – ask around, and find someone who wants to practice.

Good luck, and keep working on it!
