Maths and English


Im struggling with my english a bit , i live 6 years in UK and I'm bad on it, i don't talk much , like never but my grammar is bad too. Do you know a good site or something like treehouse maybe if exist to learn English? to improve it to a good level? my grade is E but i would like to achieve C or B on my skill as result on GCSE . Otherwise I'm aiming at the best.

Maths , i like maths but I'm not really good at it. I watched some tutorials on yt but i didn't find anyone thats good and understandable . Im intrested to train my maind to be better at maths and not only .

As now I'm learning iOS , Objective -C and i thought maths would be importand as to say creating apps that need fake intelligence . Like using algorithms or something i guess.

Any good resources on how i can improve on my skills? life maybe?

How can i get in a routine ? it seem challenging and hard but i fail 3 times per week to maintain it . Withought college i e.g. go sleep at like 3 am and maybe one day don't wash my self .

I know that this is about programming . Well theres a part here about it and it may help other people as well how to learn more efficient .

Hi Aurelian,

Take a look at some of these links BBC English

Hi Wayne.
Thank you :)

Bdw, do you think i could get to good university like somewhere in top 6 in the UK ? Im living college in 2 years. My grades well h have only maths higher C . I know they want students all with A**** but if i get good on programming and graphics , is this a big benefit too? I want to take most of my age now till I'm a teen because later everything will change i guess a lot .

I have no clue about how university places are given out now, I do know that aiming for a top six may not be whats best, there is so much more to consider like location, cost and results in the subjects you're interested in.
There are loads of universities that have excellent resources, don't get fixated on the top six.

Well , there is one good Uni in my city and is on top 3 accommodation but what I'm looking for are nice and good people that cares . So what i mean that in like top uni in UK , teachers there are different . Same as in school and in College , teachers are different . In school they try to push you and help you more. In college asking for help is like asking them for billion dollars.

its like a lesson and bye , ofc they care about it but its doenst seem right . Plus ICT there in college, creating a website , go on dreamweaver and use tables . I was waiting like 3 moths for that .. so i started to learn at home to code one HTML and CSS but i always wanted to make apps and now since i have iMac , i can finally learn . I want to go on web development , but later in future .

If i could do anything now , or maybe i will , i will certany try to change education for better in places like colleges. Try to educate people more effective . yes i know , if somebody wants something he don't need anyone but i doth mean about that . Like Steve Jobs says something like ask others, ask for help , same in karate training " you need to ask " thinking this today , i try to do different things.

I always remember form school a teacher saying " Is never to late" That brought me to never quit at any time so if i have an exam in a week but i had to learn stuff for 10 weeks and i didn't do nothing for 9 weeks i remembered " is never too late" so it wasn't and i passed maths .

Hope it sound right : p hope you understand what I'm trying to say .
