Language level

Beginner: A1


We study with friends on zoom, but I would like to meet our library of university. This days we have unusual situation.

What accents are these in?

Hello kkt,

Cara's accent is Scottish. I would guess around Edinburgh, but I'm not an expert on Scottish regional varieties.

Robert's accent is from the north-west of England: Lancashire or the Manchester region.

Selim's accent is a southern English accent. It doesn't have very strong regional features, so it's hard to place it specifically, but it would probaby be somewhere in the region sometimes called the Home Counties - the counties around London from Essex to Oxfordshire.



The LearnEnglish Team

I prefer to study with my friends quietly in the library.

I would like to study with my classmates in a quiet place, where we can talk, also where we can make or buy some food or drink and a place where it is easy for all of us to arrive.

Dear British Council Team,
Please explain ten to five and twenty to eight. I couldn't understand.

Hello Suraj Singh,

These are clock times:

ten to five means 04.50 or 16.50, depending on whether it is in the morning or the afternoon.

twenty to eight means 07.40 or 19.40, similarly.



The LearnEnglish Team

I usually will invite them to my home and they can feel free their self. We would like to drink a cup of tea or coffee and then we will start to study our tasks.

I prefer study at the studying room because is beautifull place,
calm and quiet.

I like make project with my friends or classmates, I prefer if is possible work together in our houses, because each person can give your opinions.
