hi i a new here i want to learn english  can any one help me

If you have some idea how to help you ,I will.But you must know that my English is not very good.

Thanks a lot! I got it!

Hello there! I've got a problem. Sarah says 'Makes two of you then!'. I can understand this phrase from the context. Both Magda and Johnny  have good news, right? But there's always a 'but'. Is it correctly from grammar side? The verb 'makes' at the beginning of the sentence with 's' ending.

In informal spoken English, we often miss out words. Sarah is missing out the word 'That' at the start of her sentence.
I hope that helps.

Hi Sora,

Which version of Internet Explorer are you using? It's probably 6, 7, 8 or 9. Do you have Firefox or Google Chrome on your computer as well?
