How do you feel about queuing?

If you’ve been to Britain, do you think it’s true what Tess and Ravi said – are the British good at queuing? 

How about queues in your country? Do people queue up politely or do they jump the queue? Do you jump the queue?

We’d love to hear from you - write your answers in the comments.

Hi there, I agreed with Adam to improved your speaking English quickly is by practice more & regularly. Another tips from me are; besides listening to podcast program, you should also listen to radio/tv program using English language & if possible with native speaker presenter/movies; also listen to a stories but you need to be an active listener, what I meant by active listener is that there some story telling that require you to be involve in the activity by answering their question immediately & automatically; the last and I think the most effectives is communicate with native speaker as much as possible and use English in your daily life like it's your mother tounge. Good luck!

In my opinion, the best way to improve your speaking is by practising as much as possible. Are you doing that?

Hello Hussain,
I'm afraid that the House Rules say that you can't share personal information on LearnEnglish, including voice chat usernames, so that isn't possible at the moment.

Hello everyone,
I'm in Thailand, queuing in my country are developing, we always waiting for things in queue, but there are some jumping the queue, they think they  have the reasons to do that but I don't think so, I'm a teacher for longtime and my alumna are in  government service, they knew me and would like to comfortable me in some  situations they offer me for jump the queue, but I told them I'm a teacher not to teach in school I would like my way of life  teach the parents of my students too, I prefer waiting.
But for an unnecessary things for example to buy some things up to date with the long queue I can't stand, I prefer something else or buy it later.

Hello! I don't mind waiting in a queue, but I hate jumping, especially in a traffic jam. But on the other side, my children don't like standing in a queue at an airport and I am very glad that people understand this and allow us to jump.

I don't like queuing. I hate them. When I go to some place and i watch a big queue in front of me I go off  if I can wait.
In my country, Spain,  there aren't tradition about queue, and a lot of people try to jump it. Specially at the bus stop.

hello,i have big problem with my english,every day i listen podcasts,learn new words,but i think it isn't enough for me because when i listen podcasts i understand only some words and sentences,what should i do for improving my english?

Perhaps you just need more time! Learning a language can take a lot of repetition and practice. You can't learn a word in one day - you have to revise it later.
