Hi Team!!

kindly please check my grammar and organisation of my paragraph.

I'm practicing my writing skills for my up-coming IELTS exam. Thanks and more power!!

I would like to talk about my current city Qatar, the land of the desert and camels.
Although might sound a boring place to others but I'm loving this city since I stepped here.
Qatar has two seasons winter and summer. During summer you could find people in the beaches and private resorts. Al-Khor is a well-known beach in Doha where children like to walk in the midst of heat and sun-bathing under the shiny sun. Sheraton is the oldest hotel and resort in the city and if you think to check-in here you better booked it earlier for you to avoid hassle. Now let's talk about my favorite season winter. It doesn't snow here but the weather during this time is extremely cold for me. Most children and adult go to sea side the place called Corniche. It's crowded place during winter and there's lots of thing to enjoy here. Picnic is the most fun thing for family, bicycling and jogging for sporty minded, and fishing for a group of friends. Well I can say that it is one great place to see.

Hi esna,

I'm afraid we don't have the resources to be able to offer individualised feedback on users' writing. At a glance, I can say that you might want to use clearer paragraphs, as this is an important part of proper organisation.

Have you seen our IELTS section and the TakeIELTS website? I think you might find them really useful.

Good luck!

Best wishes,

hi teacher

I am week at english speaking, how i improve english.

please assist me


Hello abdulkhalique,

The best way to improve speaking is to speak. It's like a sport - you can only improve your cricket by playing cricket. There are certainly exercises you can do, you can watch experts play, and getting help from a teacher is important, but most importantly, you must spend time playing cricket.

Ideally, you should speak with other people. Perhaps you can find a conversation group or speak with a colleague or friend who is also learning English. If that is not possible, you can still learn a lot on your own. This page - series 1 episode 1 of the Elementary Podcasts - is a great place to start. First, listen to the one or two sections of the podcast, and then read the transcript (under Instructions & downloads) as you listen. Then work through the exercises that correspond to the sections you've listened to.

To work on improving your pronunciation and fluency, choose some useful phrases from what you've listened to and imitate their pronunciation - repeat those words and phrases many times. Pronounce whole phrases, not just words, because the pronunciation of words in English varies according to context. Repeat these phrases until they're relatively easy to say.

This is slow work, but you'll be building up a repertoire of phrases that you'll be able to use fluently in your speaking!

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Thank you verry much

hello teachers!I've got a question and don't know where to comment it then I'm going to write here.which one is the correct answer?
He orders me _____ as if I were his wife.
actually I think "a,b" are the both correct,but I want to be sure.Thank ur team :)

Hello basira,

You are correct: both (a) and (b) are possible here.  The former is more common in modern English; the latter perhaps sounds slightly old-fashioned.

Best wishes,

I listened to your elementary podcast. It is very good. I have some questions about the grammar.
1. In this sentence "write down things you can find in a kitchen. For example, you could say microwave oven." both can and could is used. What is their difference? Is could the past tense of can?

2. What is the difference of these two sentences?
"I'd like to meet her." and "I like to meet her."
When we use would in such sentences?

Thank you
