Hello, I have a doubt, when knowing the right expression? Never know the rigth...I'm sorry, It is a silly question. Thank's.

Hello Claudinéia,

Knowing which expression to use takes time and practice. I'd recommend you read the general advice on how to use our site on our Frequently asked questions page. Then use those ideas when you're working on a podcast episode like this one. Many users complete these pages very quickly, but in general, it's better to spend more time. If you can, print out the transcript and underline expressions that you don't know. Then try to memorise them and practise saying them – with practice, you will improve!

All the best,

Hi everybody! Well, I am not able to understand some words such as: keep ahead of the game and take into account, I don't know how to use it, can anybody explain it to me with examples...

Hi Bobur Khan,

You can look up these phrases with the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool on the right of the page. Just type the phrase into the search box and click 'Look it up!' to get definitions, examples and more.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

thank you!


Hi everyone, could you explain for me when I use V-ing or "to do something" like the task 4. Which lesson with that?

It's useful. Thanks a lots!

Hello every body, I'm a new student in this website, my English is bad, I want to improve it by doing exercices and by practising it more with you. Good Lucky !
