You display the menu using Console.WriteLine() and Console.Write().

To get a value from the user, output a prompt with WriteLine() then wait for an answer back with ReadLine().

For example:
Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Console.WriteLine("Main Menu:")
        Console.WriteLine("----------------------------")
        Console.WriteLine("(1) Chess")
        Console.WriteLine("(2) Poker")
        Console.WriteLine("(3) Global Thermonuclear War")
        Console.WriteLine("")
        Console.WriteLine("(4) Exit")
        Console.WriteLine("----------------------------")
        Console.Write("Your choice: ")
        Dim response As String = Console.ReadLine()
        Select Case response
            Case "1"

            Case "2"

            Case "3"
                Console.Write("Who shall we attack first? ")
                Dim target As String = Console.ReadLine()

            Case "4"

            Case Else
                Console.WriteLine("Unknown Response")

        End Select

        Console.WriteLine("Press Enter to Continue")
        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub

End Module

That is a nice example. But I need bit of more explaination what if it is a prgraomme like if someone presses 1 it takes you to the no to a differentcalss adn if press 2 to a siddernet calss. . I measn suppose there are 3 classes in the vb.net programme and calss 1 is called "customer", 2 is called "quotation" 3 is called "Help". So when 1 is pressed it will start like this enter the name of file to be created, when someone enters the file it name and hits enter it will say  tilte:  one title is entered it says (when enter is pressed) full name:  and so on. Similalry if 3 is presssed it shows help file and when 2 is pressed it says , enter the interest rate , enter the no. of months....etc....

Ok...you could do:
Select Case response
            Case "1"
                Console.Write("FileName: ")
                Dim FileName As String = Console.ReadLine()
                Console.Write("Title: ")
                Dim Title As String = Console.ReadLine()
                Console.Write("Full Name: ")
                Dim FullName As String = Console.ReadLine()

                ... now do something with "FileName", "Title", and "FullName"...

            Case "2"

            Case "3"

            Case Else
                Console.WriteLine("Unknown Response")

        End Select
