Welcome back Johnny!
Regards Learn English Team.

First Thank you very much for this website, i want to improve my conversation what i can do

Thank you for the kind words – and glad you find the site useful! Practising your English with no-one around can be tricky, but here are a few suggestions.

  • Use the comments section here to practice grammar and vocabulary. It's writing, but still useful.
  • Try to record yourself. Choose some of the discussion questions and go to a site like, record your answers,  and playback your recording – what mistakes did you make? What do you like about your answer?
  • Keep listening to our recordings. One of the best ways to improve speaking... is listening!
  • Finally, remember you don't have to have a native speaker to talk to. Maybe a friend or colleague wants to talk English – ask around, and find someone who wants to practice.

Good luck, and keep working on it!

Good evening from Spain.
I´ve heard all the series of  "Elementary podcasts", and I´d like to know.
When are we going to have the fourth serie?
I hope not too late.

There's still some work to do on Series 4 and we're really busy at the moment, but it will come out in the next few months.
