    Be patient. Yesterday was Sunday so fewer people use the forum.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm I've been learning English since I was younger XXX years old and now, most more than ever before, I need it to in my life. so I searsh on searched Google for some voice chat sites to train help me with my spoken English. Do you know or suggest some one? Does anyone here know any such sites? Maybe some a teacher wanna wants to help me by Skype. well that's my doubt for now

    Thanks one more time again and, if you found some any wrongly-constructed words or phrases, construction please tell me. I would really appreciate it.
    Welcome to the forum arrowPT.

    We don't provide Skype voice chat training ourselves. What sites did you find when you searched Google? Did you try any of them yet? How long have you been learning English. You said you had been learning since you were "younger" but we don't know how many years you have been studying. Are you taking formal classes?

    As you can see from my corrections in red, there are a lot of errors in your written English. It is important to follow certain rules in written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (English, Portugal, Microsoft, Shakespeare).
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Voice chat

    First of all, I.m sorry for so many errors in my thread, and thank you again. Normally even in portuguese I write without grammatical rules on internet.

    Yes, I searched Google for some voice chat sites (once I saw an news on TV, that spoke about brazilian students having online conversations with american old people by Skype, and that help them a lot) but I don't found any one that fills up my interests.

    I've been learning English since I was 10 years old in School, now I've 22. (...and I'm so ashamed for my English level)

    I'm sorry for give you more work correcting my wrongly-constructed reply.

    Yes, I searched Google for some voice chat sites (once I saw an a news item/story on TV, that spoke about Brazilian students having online conversations with American old people by Skype (no comma required here) and that helped them a lot (no bracket was required here) but I don't haven't found any one that fills up my interests me.

    I've been learning English since I was 10 years old in school and now [strike]I've/strike] I'm 22 (and I'm so ashamed for of my English level).

    Don't apologise and don't be ashamed. Learning English is very difficult! Thanks for your answers but I'm still interested to know whether you are currently taking formal English classes somewhere. I assume you don't go to school any more!

    Have you looked for a language exchange group where you live? I don't know where you are in Portugal but there are certainly groups in Lisbon. They can be very helpful because it's much better to practice your spoken English with a real person who is right in front of you, rather than by Skype. I'm not sure what you meant by "I haven't found one which fills up my (sic) interest". Skype conversations are just for conversation practice. They usually have lots of people to choose from so you should be able to find someone to have an interesting conversation with.

    Note my corrections to your latest post. Capitalisation is very important in English - capitalise all proper nouns (ie the names of countries, cities nationalities, languages, people's names, official titles etc). We understand that many people don't bother with grammatical rules when they use the internet but this forum is dedicated to correct English so we ask that everyone follows the rules of grammar, punctuation and capitalisation.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Voice chat

    Thank you for more one answer, and interest to help me. As in Portuguese or other language that isn't our native language it's always difficult to master.

    I haven't taking formal English lessons at this time, but I will participate on Technical and Communication English Class that starts on August 27, that I believe sincerely it's not adequate of my English level because normally "Technical English" it's just the essentials. I live approximately 40/50 km from Lisbon so here I haven't these language exchange groups and also don't knew that exist.

    When I said "I haven't found one which fills up my interest" I'm saying that i want one good and reliable site that I can trust and free.

    My future objective it's to do one Paid Professional Experience in Norway and for that I will need intermediate high English. This program that I'm currently interested it's from this site http://vidaedu.com/estagios-vidaedu/...s-remuneradas/, it's in Portuguese language but basically it's one Portuguese company that provides traineeships and an "Ano Sabático" I don't know translate it to English but means one year gap to visit other Countries.

    Thanks, have a nice day.

    It is possible that no-one here has any useful advice for you. As English teachers, we don't use Skype English-learning resources. I think you will have to test out some of these sites yourself and then decide which one works for you.

    Look at my corrections on your post. You seem to have forgotten all the rules I gave you in post #4.
