Hello!! I'm new here... I like the activities in this space. I am Mexican. I need to practice my English. is there here an online chat available? or something like it?

Hi alda.martin,
Welcome to LearnEnglish! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the activities.
At present, there is no way for anyone to exchange personal information on LearnEnglish because some users are minors (not yet 18 years old). We plan to create a way for you to contact each other in the future, but this feature is not yet available.
In the meantime, you could search the internet for "online language exchange".  I'm sure you'll find some useful sites, but please be careful with your personal information, as it can be risky to share it indiscriminately. You could also look at the webpage of the British Council in Mexico. If there's a centre near you, they might be able to help you also.
Good luck and please visit us again soon!
Best wishes,

how can i find students from the other britch council ? 
 

Hello i realy like britch council.ihope to learn english

Hello.. Irealy like this podcast.I hope to learn english. 

I don´t like, because the women are wearing clothes that isn´t appropriate for sport. 

Hello.
I liked very much this section.
In my country Venezuela, the most popular sport is Baseball. Annual season begins in October. The stadiums fill up with fans and is very funny because most people carry a musical instrument  for example, trumpet, drums, etc and it's very noisy. In the stadiums, people eat hot dogs, soft drinks, pop corn and candies. 
During the game, the atmosphere is cheerful and I love it.

Hi.. please comment on my writing. Thanks 
Why don't more people watch women's football? What do you think?
People don’t watch women’s football because I think women’s football is boring compare to men’s football. When they play the game it is not interesting like men’s football. Their game is very slow. People do not like to see slow game. They want to see fast, rough and aggressive game. I think these things are lacking in them.

Hello
I really like your websites, I learn English on your web everyday.
Thank you so much !
