MissInternetEarth, I have read that their are rules that we have to write answer of question of the videos or anything like this one or our comments wouldn't be published but everyone doesn't write answers of the questions but their comments are published???? Why?? In rules even is written that if we break the rules it wouldn't be published?? I can't understand anything.

Hi MissRubyEnvironment,

Thanks for your comments on LearnEnglish Kids! Our house rules are to make this website a safe place for children. That's why we don't allow our members to post their personal details, like their full name or email address. We also don't allow bad language or hurtful comments. 

We ask our members to write about the topic of the page they are on. We put some discussion questions to give people ideas about what to write. Sometimes people don't answer the questions but they are still commenting about the activity (for example - "I like this story", or  "this game is easy"). We still publish these comments, as long as they don't break any of the other house rules.

Sometimes you have to wait 24 hours to see your comment appear, as we need time to read all of the comments that are posted before publishing them.

I hope that helps! Have fun practising your English on LearnEnglish Kids.


Best wishes,


LearnEnglish Kids team
