    I like to learn english. Do you like to help me?

  2. Tania Says:

    Hi! Dear Mostafa, we all like to learn English, but we have to help ourselves listening every ESL POD lesson and writing to ESL POD blog.
    We like to have new blog friends. Welcome!

  3. Betty Says:

    Thank you very much Tania, I like the way you encourage everyone including me to help ourselves to learn English.

    It is true, “we all like to learn English, but we have to help ourselves by listening to every ESL POD lesson and writing to ESL POD blog”.

    And it is true that “We like to have new blog friends”. Welcome Everyone!

    P.S. English is a ‘proper noun’ and we should begin the word with a Capital letter. Thus, “I like to learn English”.
