Hello everyone!
I found myself that watching English films or English program was a good way for listening English while reading newspaper in English is useful for my reading skill.
Besides,I think that the best method to learn speaking is talking to other people. That's the reason why I'm looking for a partner who can practise with me. Well. We can talk or text via Facebook or Skype. Just once or twice a week depending on our free time. Is there anyone who wants to improve speaking English with me? I'm glad that we can be friend! Just reply this comment, I'll contact you.
Thank you!
All the best,
Rosie

Well, I'm so happy that you guys also want to practise speaking. But, you know, the policy of British Council doesn't allow us to share any private information. I don't know how to contact to you guys. Is there any other ways?
By the way, I'm sorry to the British Council Staff. I didn't read the policy clearly. But is there any other ways which can help us contact each other? Please tell us if you can help. We just want to improve our speaking skill. Thank you!

Hello Rosie Phan,

I appreciate what you are saying and it's great to want to improve. However, we have to be very careful with personal data. Some of our users are under the age of 18 and so we have very strict policies in place. It's unfortunate but I think it's important to take issues of privacy and data protection very seriously.

 

Best wishes,

Hello,
I'm very glad that we can be friend. I have been studying English for ages, but it seems not effective. I can not listen and speak in English well. I hope you can help me practice English in our free time.
Thanks,

Hi Rosie!
Your suggestion is great, and I really want to practise speaking English with you. Please, can you tell me how I can find you on Facebook?
Best wishes,
Milana
