Hi everybody,
Shall I be correct if I ask this question?
What is your count among the siblings of your father ?

Hi Esikela Udaya Kumar,

I'm afraid not. As I said on the other page, this is not a question which has a natural equivalent in English. We would use one of the questions I suggested in the earlier answer.

Best wishes,

Hello. Im Daria. I was born in Poland, but now i'm living in Engalnd in Canterbury. I'm 20 years old. I'm still learning english language. I've got a dog . I'm so shy so I don't like speak english with someone. I understand a lot of words. What can I do to be more confident ?

Hello Daria,

The Elementary Podcasts could be really useful for you. I'd recommend you follow Series 4, and you could also follow Series 3 if you have a lot of time to study. You should also read the advice under How can I improve my speaking? on our Help page – although this can be a lot of work, this kind of practice really does work.

It may feel like you are progressing slowly at first, but with time you should see a significant improvement in your fluency and vocabulary, and this will help you feel more confident when speaking. Try to practice every day, even if for only 15 minutes – after a couple of weeks, I think you'll start to see some results.

Let us know how you get on, and good luck!

Best wishes,
