  • How do you feel about animals? If you've been to Britain, do you think what Tess and Ravi said is true - are the British pet lover?
  • How do people view animals where you live? How common is it for people to have pets in your country? Do you have one? What kind?

Hello bharathviki,

Could you please give an example? The only use I can think of is the subjunctive in a sentence such as 'It's essential that she do her homework', but this sort of use is relatively rare nowadays. As this is an uncommonly used form, we don't have an explanation of this, but I'm sure you can find one by doing an internet search if you want to know more about it.

Hello woul domach,

If you have an iPhone, you can find the Elementary Podcasts in iTunes by searching for 'British Council LearnEnglish' in the iTunes store.

Hi, everybody, it's nice to meet you and share the activities.


Hi i have a question when we pronounce some of english like ( konw ) then k letter is silent what is reason
Please tell me

Hi bharatseervi,

Some languages have spelling which is phonetic - that is to say, the spelling and the pronunciation are consistent. Other languages, such as English, have spelling which is not so consistent with the pronunciation. Words in English can change their pronunciation over time, while the spelling does not change so quickly, for example. I'm afraid you simply have to learn the spelling when you learn the word.

Best wishes,
