I'm from Kazakhstan)

"How green are you?", What do this question mean?. I don't translate. thanks a lot

Hello hoaga,

'Green' is often used to mean 'ecologically-friendly'. When you ask someone if they are green, you are asking if they look after the environment.

Best wishes,

Hello hoaga,

Are you asking how green (i.e. environmental) I, Peter, am? I'm afraid I don't discuss my own views or lifestyle on LearnEnglish! Here, I only deal with language issues!

Best wishes,

oh, yes, I see. Thank teacher very much

I'm recently looking for the best way to learn to listen to English. However, I found out sources on the internet, I'm now so stressful because there are many. My way is attempting to listen some videos and podcast that are relevant to me. it doesn't work and I think I'm going on the wrong way. Could you tell me what the best way to learn listening is. I'll be grateful! Thanks a lot.

Hello lavmtien.yds,

I think that I'm a green man because I follow the activities made to WWF or Legambiente. In my little city there are a different container to recicling a food, a plastic, a glass. I think that all people do a recicle, the world breathe better and so all people living better :-)

I want to talk about Italy. Italy is my country, is very beautiful and is full of beautiful art. In Italy the lunch is very good, the life is great but, at this time, there isn't a work for all people. Many industries closed and transfer it activities in another countries. An example is FIAT that has open it activities in America and it build a FCA.
