Hi! Looks like I'm the first one here so … hi to everyone who joins the course and nice to meet you! Good luck with the course and see you in the next lesson!


1. Keep your introduction short and clear.

2. Say hello and give a little bit of information about yourself. Don’t say anything too private or personal.

3. You can say what you hope to get or learn.

4. Wish people good luck.

5. You don’t have to write full sentences.

6. You might use more exclamation marks (!) than in formal writing because it looks friendly.

There are some reasons to like studing online : 1- Win time that we can spend in traffic. 2- fix the course with tutors according to our schedule. 3- We can feel some freedom to explain our circumstances.

Soumis par Vidyasagar le mar 11/02/2020 - 09:39

These courses are good. It's a good opportunity to interact with so many students across the globe. It is flexible and convenient because I can learn whenever i have free time. They are interactive. More interactive when it comes to writing, but less when it comes to speaking. Please make more courses about speaking also.

Hello Vidyasagar

Thanks for your feedback. I wanted to let you know that we are working on some new Speaking skills pages. I'm afraid it will be several months before they are ready, but please do keep an eye out for them in the future.

All the best

I like studying online because It's on my time. But the British council doesn't take it very engaging because they didn't provide suggestions or correct the mistake in the comment section. So, I don't feel any motivation to give comments.

Hello Mahfuzur Rahman

We would love to be able to provide feedback for our users, but I'm afraid that we just have the resources to be able to offer such a service for free. Please know that we're happy to help with short, specific questions about anything on any of our pages, so if you ever such a question, please do ask it here.

Soumis par TP le dim 04/08/2019 - 04:38

Hi friends! I think studying online gives you several benefits. Firstly, time is so flexible and you can study whenever it is possible. No matter wherever you are, you can get the most updated education. It is so important for developing nations as they have limited access to high quality education at face-to-face classes. On the other hand, you can join the international community and share your ideas and experience.
