Hello Sir ,
I want to improve my writing skills because it's very bad. what I want to do for it?
Thanks
Adhi

Hello Adhi,

There's some advice on improving your writing on our Help page. Our Writing for a purpose section also has lots of information on academic writing, and our sister site the ESOL Nexus has a writing section with examples of different kinds of practical writing. Finally, I'd suggest you read as much as you can of the kind of writing that you want to do - great writers are also great readers.

All the best,

How could I download the podcast? I would like to use it in my class, unfortunately, not always the Internet conection works. Thank you in advance.

Hello Alicia,

If you click on Instructions & downloads, which is not far below the audio player, you can download the podcast in mp3 format. You'll also find the exercises in pdf format there as well (in the Support Pack).

Hello
Nice to meet you everyone

It is a very good lesson for learning English with so much variety materials. Thanks teacher!

Hello everyone ,
It's very good lesson , it was interesting .. Thanks very much for your effort .
Regarding the question , Do you complain when you get bad service ? No I don't usually complain in shops , I just leave the place and don't go again . Maybe in restaurants I would write that the service was not good in the complaining paper ..

Thanks again & Best Regards
