Hello everybody Good Morning!
can any body tell me how to use must,must have and must have been?


I got a problem in speaking English. I tell you now and hope that you can give me some advises
I often practice my speaking skill by talking to myself in english, and record it. Then i can listen to my voice and pick up my mistakes

But I usually lost my fluency while speaking, because I keep focusing much on right words, grammar, ideas to tell, flow of the story,...
Can you please help me with some steps that work, or some ways to improve the situation...

Thanks much!


Fluency is always a difficult thing to master, especially when talking at speed and trying to concentrate on accuracy, just as you say. Practice is key and it does take time, but the more you speak, the more you will feel confident and the more fluent you will become. 

For some tips and advice on speaking (and other areas too) please take a look at our Help page. I'm sure it will be very useful to you.

Hi, I prefer to go to department stores beacause they're open until 9 p.m. So I have time to look for and buy something. Many of department stores are open on Sundays and it's another important point for me. I don't go to the local market because it's on Thursday/Wednesday while I'm working. When I went to London I liked Covent Garden and Oxford Street. They'are wonderful. Covent Garden is very particular with its buskers, bars and shops.

Hi guys, I'm new here. I want to improve my English because i have not good communication skills so any one guide me how i improve my English and communication skill ???????????

I'm the king of shopping if i have money. In my country we have a big market called madina. It's the bigest market in our country. It Can be very busy and crowded sometime. Particularly to the festival approch such as chrismas and the muslim's festivals. At those times i hate going there. To avoid the crowd and bumping into people like Carolina and Emely did into the sale last times, i Can go there do my shoping two weeks before each festivals.
