Thanks for downloading LearnEnglish Grammar and we're happy to hear you're enjoying it!  Here's how you can access your purchased content:

  1. From the Home screen, go to Purchase.
  2. Next to the question pack you have purchased, the Buy button should have changed to a green Download button.

how to download this app for andriod phone?

Hi rieches,
Try clicking the "Available on the App Store" or "Android App on Google Play" buttons above, under the Download now section.  Or, try searching for the "British Council" in the App Store to find the app and downloading it from there.

Hope this helps!  Don't forget to download our other English learning apps!

Best wishes,

Dear British Council,
I'm currently using your LearnEanglish Grammar app (v on an iPad 3 with iOS 6.0.1 and I've added all the 9 currently available packs.
Since I found the app really useful and well done, I'd like to provide some feedback about it.

  • While the overall user interface is "smooth", I found not that easy to swap words when it is requested to rearrange them in the correct order. The vertical layout as in "Beginner Pack 1 - Can, could - 7" is the slowest one and I found it really uncomfortable (specially when swapping the last two words). The horizontal layout as in "Beginner Pack 1 - Can, could - 8" is better, but has some issues when the sentence is split in two lines and words "float" in the wrong place.
  • In "Beginner Pack 1 - Simple Present - 20" the correct answer should be "works" instead of "lives" since this is the verb used with the same picture in all other exercises.
  • In "Intermediate Sample Pack - Past Continuous - 18" there's no way to select the answer.
  • There are some exercises that are marked as wrong even if they are correct (I see the red number on the result page), but if I touch the red number, the exercise is displayed as correct and the result page is updated as well. Here it is a list of those I found:
    "Intermediate Sample Pack - Adjectives 1 - 21" (I got caught in heavy rain this afternoon). Quite strange, I have a screenshot of this question as 21/22, but now the set contains only 20 questions!
    "Intermediate Sample Pack - Present Perfect/Past Simple - 20" (Have you heard of it?...). This set had 25 questions when I tried it, but now it only contains 23 questions!
  • Some answers are marked as wrong even if the app says they are the correct ones. Here it is a list of those I found:
    "Beginner Pack 1 - Can, could - 16" (the second "Can" is marked as an error)
    "Beginner Pack 1 - Can, could - 17" (the first "Can" is marked as an error)

Thank you.
Best regards,
