Language level

Beginner: A1


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.


When I study, I prefer to do it in the library. The environment and the quiet as in the library, is nowhere else.

When I and my friends were studying nearby our houses in the Cafe we were always meet us at 4 till 6, so that were really good days, maybe 15 years ago,
It were a good memories
