Hello nganpham1096,

This is an informal way of saying 'What are you doing?'.

Hi. Team
I want to participate at your courses face to face on line. But my country's name isn't in your countries list. Iam from Kurdistan/lraq

Hello Helan gian,

I'm sorry that you're not able to find a face-to-face British Council class in Kurdistan/Iraq -- we are located in many countries around the world, but there are some places that we do not have a centre.

We offer some free online classes at FutureLearn that perhaps might be of interest to you. You're also welcome to use all of LearnEnglish for free. If there's any other way we can help you, please do ask us.

All the best,

Hi. Dear teachers
I always have problms with present perfect. I dont know when l must use it. I mix it with present simple. Can I find my answer in your site? Thank you. I hope you understand me. My english language isn't good.

Hi Helan gian,

The present perfect can be quite tricky for learners so you are certainly not the only person to struggle with this. We have quite a few resources on this area:

this is our main page on the present perfect

this page deals with the perfective aspect

this page also deals with the present perfect

this page looks at the present perfect simple and continuous


I hope those links are useful.


Best wishes,

Hello semiha,

I'm afraid we don't correct users' written texts. If you have a specific question about a specific part of one sentence, we're happy to help you, though.

Hi, Team.
Ashlie : Stephen's come skateboarding, and me and poppy have come along to watch.
In this case, could I change "Stephen's come skateboarding" to :
1. Stephen's come playing skateboard.
2. Stephen's come to play skateboard.
Would you like to explain, please?
Thank you very much.

Hi Nizam Balinese,

We do not use 'play' before skateboard so none of those sentences are correct. You can say 'go skateboarding' or 'come skateboarding'.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team
