hii kirk and all the members...
The site is really helpful for everyone who wants to learn English in correct manner. my problem is, I can understand the language but unable to speak up properly and fluently! please help me out in enhancing my communication skills and let me know how to improve vocabulary.

Hi ashutammu,

It's nice to know that the site is helping you.

A good place to start improving your speaking is our Listen & Watch section, where you can find a wide range of different audio and video materials on different topics and at different levels.  Take a look at the different materials available there so you can see what might be most useful for you.  There are transcripts and exercises to help you improve your listening comprehension, and you can use the audio as a model that you can imitate to learn new expressions and improve your pronunciation and oral fluency, which will also increase your confidence.

It's also of course important to speak with other people as often as you can. Perhaps you have a friend or colleague or family member who knows some English - try speaking only in English with that person, or at least part of the time only in English. If you can, use some of the expressions you learned from the podcasts when you're speaking.  Even if you don't have a partner, try speaking by yourself at home.  It's amazing how even speaking by yourself can improve your confidence and fluency.

For vocabulary, I suggest you start (if you haven't already) a personal vocabulary book.  Organise it by topic (sports, work, appearance, finance etc) and add new words and phrases to it as you listen, watch and read in English.  You can use the book to test yourself so you can see how well you memorise the items.

Remember that you can use the comments sections on most pages to ask us about anything with which you have problems.

Best wishes,

Hello learning English team.
I want to ask: What does the phrase "I'll see you around?" mean? Thanks a lot.

Hello Dtnhuthuy,

It means 'we'll see each other some time' and we use it when we say goodbye to someone without arranging to see them again, but we think that we'll bump into them somewhere by accident - in the park, in a shop, on the street, at a party etc.  It's a very common informal way of saying goodbye to someone you know.

Best wishes,

Hello learn English team
In task
Tony'll be back next wee;
Does Tony'll mean Tony will?
What does this sentence mean
I wondered if you wanted to be in on it.

Hello hayaalqasem,

Yes, 'Tony'll' means 'Tony will'.

The sentence you quote means 'I wondered if you wanted to be a part of this'.  The context is that Fadi has a plan but needs more money, so he asks if Olivia would like to participate - i.e. provide some money in return for being part of the new business.

I hope that helps to clarify it for you.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
