  • Najma Begum
    Najma Begum United Kingdom English is a fundamental language to everyone. It is important to understand the verbal communication of a person in English. Also we need to know how to write and structure an easy before we start putting our thoughts together. In my opinion we can improve our writtng skills by reading books, newspapers and answering simple questions everyday. 2015-11-20 00:11:47
