Is it Possible to have a group discussion to practice will all learners ?

Hello Ray Or,

No, I'm afraid that's not possible on LearnEnglish. You might want to look into our English Online courses, where you'd be in a virtual classroom with a teacher and other students.

All the best,

Very interesting!
Could you advise me a dictionary where I can find translation (in French) of some expressions like “don't get me wrong”, “ they fit the brief” “too much going on”
Yes that’s funny. They are all in the same phrase ;-)


Hello Emir,

The Cambridge Dictionary has an English–French dictionary, but I'm not sure you will find translations of phrases such as these. I'd recommend WordReference and/or Linguee, though it's also a good idea for you to do a little searching, as you might find something even more useful.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

I made a discussion with my friend for English speaking practice. Then, I drew a schedule for an hour Every Saturday. But she was not convinced by that idea. I thought she disagree.

Daily I argue my colleagues about many things. and in the end we agreeing or disagreeing about the matter.

In my country a constitutional referendum will happen in this month about the reduction of Members of Parliament. I disagree with those who approve this reduction.

On Tuesday I disagreed with my colleagues at work on tools needed for our work activities. Eventually we came into agreement on the best way to use the tool which was quite helpful.

The last week my friend and I had a brief discussion because I told to my friend that ours friend usually study only 2 hours per day and she definitely disagreed with my information. She was not convinced by that. I understand her point of view cause both of us study approximately 8 hours every day but that day I was felling so tired with ours disagreement and I have decided left her to following my studies in my bedroom.
