If you have never exercised at a gym before, it may not be a good idea to start your first day lifting 40-pound dumbbells. It would be better to start off with easier, shorter workouts and increase their difficulty and intensity as you find yourself getting stronger. It is the same with your English language learning workouts. When you are learning English, practicing English at the right level is important.

Read this short passage from one of the EnglishHelper learning programs. It is about a tea vendor, who has a popular little stall.
The Tea Man
His stall is tiny. It is just a tin shed with a small wooden table and a broken chair. The table is very clean. It has a small gas stove, a big saucepan to make tea, and two glass jars – one with sweet and the other with salty biscuits. Every morning, at 7:00 a.m., the tea man opens his little stall and starts selling cups of hot, milky tea with biscuits for just one dollar. People love his tea! Early morning walkers, office goers, students, housewives – they all come to the little stall to drink tea, chat with their friends, and enjoy a break from their work. The tea man is one of the most liked people in my neighbourhood!
