Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Hello dilipkumarad89,

That's quite a general question so I'm not sure how far I can give you specific advice.

Generally speaking, to improve your grammar I suggest you use our Grammar and Vocabulary section, where you can work on specific areas that you wish to improve.

Try to think about your strengths and weaknesses, and try to improve the latter using the appropriate exercises. Remember also that the various texts in our Listen & Watch section have grammar exercises with them, so take a look at that section too.  You can use the search feature on the right of most pages to look for particular areas of grammar.  For example, if you want to find exercises on the present perfect then type 'present perfect' into the search window and you'll get results like these, which give you many links to relevant exercises.

Most important of all, don't give up!  Sometimes it's hard to see progress and easy to focus on the things you get wrong rather than the things you get right.  Very often the errors we make are quite small and insignificant in terms of our communication; it is important not to overstress these.

Best wishes,

Hi Dinesh9642,

I would suggest that you follow Peter's advice to dilipkumara89 (just above) to improve in general. To work on your speaking skills, I would suggest the Elementary Podcasts (under Listen & Watch). In addition to the grammar exercises that Peter mentions, you'll find transcripts for every episode. You should try to imitate the pronunciation that you hear in the recording. It's important to repeat words and phrases to yourself over and over, as you mouth needs to get used to making new shapes to make new sounds. It may feel strange to speak to yourself, but such an effort is important. The repetition will also help you remember the words and expressions, so be sure to choose ones that will be useful in your speaking.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Dear Team,
I am new to your site, I am a commerce graduate and I studied in our local language from I standard to Graduate (English as a second language) still I am not able to write and speak English fluently, I request you to kindly give ideas to improve my skills through your website step by step (like session wise). I am very happy to see your website it will help us to improve our English. Thank you so much.

Hello Pari,

LearnEnglish has no particular order, in part because that makes it easier for users with different levels and aims to use it. I'd suggest you take a little time to look through the different parts of the site using the navigation menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.). Whenever you see something that looks useful, give it a go.

Is there any particular skill that you want to work on? For example, for listening and speaking, I'd recommend the Elementary Podcasts or Big City Small World or Word on the Street. Our section called Writing for a Purpose has lots of useful resources to improve your academic writing. As you look through the site, I expect you'll find something that can help you.

Best wishes,

Hi i am new user and i want to prove my english , my prununciation is not ggod i improve my english .

Hello sumitshann,

We're glad that you found LearnEnglish and I think you'll see that there are lots of resources here. If you haven't already, I'd recommend that you explore the site using the menu at the top (Home  Listen & Watch  etc.) so that you can see what's on offer.

To improve your pronunciation, I'd recommend using the Elementary Podcasts. For example, you could start with Series 3 Episode 1. Listen and try to understand the episode without the transcript first. Then read the transcript as you listen. Identify phrases that you'd like to learn, and imitate the pronunciation that you hear. Practise saying them to yourself or to others as often as you can - this will help your mouth become used to making the sounds, and help you remember them. This should give you some confidence and make your speaking more fluent.

The more you practise, the more you will improve!

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Hello,

Can we use have or has with 'there'?.Because i think we can only use is,are,was and were with 'there'.Please explain this one for me.

Thank you.

Hi bimsara,

I suppose you are referring to the there is/are construction. Yes, it is possible to use the verb be in any verb form - has or have are possible, for example, in the present perfect: "There have been lots of tourists here this year."

Note that modal verbs can also be used after there: "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." (Nelson Mandela).

Hi Kirk,

I would like to know this sentence is grammatically correct or not.
'There haven't be any errors or mistakes.'
And is it correct to say in this way,
'There can't be any errors or mistakes'

Thank you.
