Hello Ahnien and welcome to LearnEnglish!
I'm afriad I can't really give you any specific advice without knowing more about your level of English at the moment, and knowing what you will need English for in the future.
My advice is to explore the site: take a look at the Listen and Watch section and try the different audio and video texts available, perhaps starting with our Elementary Podcasts Series 3, try some of the exercises in the Grammar and Vocabulary section and explore the other materials.  I'm sure you'll find a lot of things to help you.
Remember, keep working on your English and you will make progress.
Good luck!

I can learn something new here every time. This recording as well as the exercises are extremely good.Thanks very much! I also enjoy making friends from all over the world over the internet tools, such as Skype, QQ, etc. But seems few people use Facebook in China. Anyway, multicultural communication is really interesting!

Hello Kaofeng!
That's great to hear, and I'm glad you enjoy our materials. We have visitors from all  over the world, too, so why not try to make some friends in the comments section one our pages?
