Thanks for your explanation. Your English is on a very high level. It is very interesting to read your comments. =) 

Dear Tanat,
Thanks for your compliment about my English level, but honestly I don't think so, only slightly better than 6/7 months ago when I first register here (a million thanks for this great pure educational website).
My grammar isn't very good, as I always mention this is my weakest area.
The very best of luck,
Warm regards,
Umi Zahrok

Hi Umi Zahrok. My name's Arman and I'm from Russia. Thank you for all your comments and anyway thanks all people who made this site. I want to learn English so much, and when i found this site i was very happy that I can really learn to speak English. Umi please tell me can I talk to you on skype?? Is it possible for you??

Dear Arman (Nickname),
Let's learn English together through this website by replying each other comments or ideas, but unfortunately we can't chat through Skype or share other personal information within members here (honestly, I think this is their [British Council] best point by not letting users share their personal informatio). Keep up the good works 'The LearnEnglish Teams'. You're really really terrific!
Any way Arman, glad to have you replying my comment and looking forward to reading your next enthusiastic comment about learning English.
The very best of luck,
Warm regards,
Umi Zahrok

Hello Arman,
Please re-read the House Rules. They say that you cannot share personal information, such as Skype usernames, on LearnEnglish.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Dear sir I cant read the questions is there any problem on the website ?please reply ???

Dear Sameh,

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
