Hi hermione 123,
You won't get a notification but you can check replies/upvotes.
Just after logging into the site, you'll see the 'My account' screen. Or if you're already logged in, you can click on 'My account' in the top left. Then, if you click on the 'Track' tab it'll show any replies on pages where you've commented. If you click on 'Points', it'll show any upvotes your comments have got.

Hope this helps!

Best wishes,
Tina (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I don’t have any car but I have a motorbike. I remember that my motorbike broke down while I was going to my friend’s party. It was 7 p.m and I walked around with my motorbike to find a place to repair it. It was an hour after this bad thing happened I went to the party
