Hello everyone!!!
i'm satyam from india and i want to improve my confidence in english speaking in telephonic conversation and also when giving ppt

Hello Satyam kumar sharma,
It can be difficult to make or take telepone calls in a foreign language because we don't have the visual clues that we have in face to face conversation, such as gestures, facial expressions, body language and so on. Presentations can be stressful even in your own language, so I can understand why you want to practise them as well!
I think you might find this interesting. It's some exercises based on a telephone conversation, but this conversation is actually a conference call with several participants.  What makes it especially useful for you is that the main speaker also gives a short presentation at the beginning and then deals with questions, so it combines telephoning with presenting: Conference calls
You can also find some useful telephoning exercises on the BBC's English learning pages.
I hope those links are helpful.
Best wishes,

Hello, good day pls can u tell me the procedure to the main class ?

Hi Ransome Jyd,

Welcome to LearnEnglish!

LearnEnglish is more like a library than a class. In other words, there is no programme of pages to work through or any teacher who will assign you work. Instead, you can browse the site and work on the pages that interest you.

If you don't know where to start, I would recommend Series 3 of the Elementary Podcasts, the Word on the Street videos, or Big City Small World (all under Listen & Watch) - but remember that the site is yours to browse as you wish!

If you have any questions or need other guidance, please don't hesitate to ask us.

Best wishes,

Hello I want know the grammar mistakes in this paragraph

"Leeds and Baghdad share a vital important to me, since they are both hosted me to study in their main universities. The traveling from my home city (Baghdad) to Leeds encourages me to write the main different features and contrast among them.

First, in terms of economic situation, Leeds is more expensive than my home city because of tuition, living expenses, and goods. For example, anyone who wishes to study in Leeds University must pay fees, whereas it is free to study in Baghdad University. However, unlike the city of Baghdad, the economic situation in Leeds is well thought-out and it is depending on the optimization plan these days. In contrast, Baghdad city has no development plan because the majority of politicians are not familiar with the economics developments."

thanks
