Learn English at British Council is one of the best way of studying and practicing English. but I'd like to suggest that British Council should offer a certificate  for people who study in this site. It would be so nice. I wish you all keep going better, and thanks for all.

Hello Joisval!
Thank you for your kind words, and glad you like the site! The certificate is an interesting idea, but not really possible at the moment - although we will be offering online courses in the future.

Hope you can still enjoy the site - even without a certificate!

Hi, can you explain the usage of the indefinite article before the words in the plural form, in the story they say "a Christmas presents", thank you.

Hi Ostrich,
You're right that we don't use the indefinite article before plural nouns. Are you talking about 1:09 in the video? Rob says "our Christmas presents", not "a Christmas presents".
