Hi Tom I am having problem in listening when I speak to someone on the phone what is your advice please

Reply

Tom August 23, 2015 at 3:00 pm

Hi Layth, I suggest you just practice lots! Listen to English at every opportunity – especially Real English audio (like ours) as this will prepare you more for real life situations like the telephone. Good luck!

Hi . you’ ve told that this site lessons are free but I cant load them just as i don’t live in Europe . I think you are the advocates of spreading knowledge in every place no matter where it is.

Tom August 23, 2015 at 2:57 pm

Hi Yas,

Unfortunately we have had to limit the downloads of our welcome pack because we have to pay for the monthly downloads on our server, and too many people were downloading it.

There are 50 hours of free audio lessons on the website that took us 4 years to produce. That is plenty for you to start with!

We don’t have the resources to pay for tens of thousands of downloads of the Welcome Pack each month at the moment. If more people bought the paid materials, we would not have to do this, but lots of people just expect everything online to be free, and we’re a very small group of teachers and we don’t have the money to pay to teach the whole world English for free.

We have no advertising on the website, and all our costs are paid from the money that comes in from people buying the downloads. Sorry, but that’s the way it is at the moment.

Tom

hiii Tom….bro i m working very hard to improve my communication skills but i lag in pronunciation.my mother tongue influence is resisting my will to speak.i want to be a good speaker so would u like to suggest something to me?

Reply

Tom May 16, 2016 at 8:09 am

Hi Amit, all you need to do is practise speaking with people – either online using Skype or some other software, or by meeting people face-to-face. The more your speak, the better you will become 🙂

Good luck!
