A few websites

Explore the following sites that are loaded with new ideas to work on your English:
  • Learn English by reading the news in Voxy
  • Join a social network, make friends, and learn other languages
  • Learn with the masters

Hope there is something for every taste!


I thought I would include here the link to the story students of Avanzado 1 have to read for tomorrow, The happy prince.

For Students of Intermedio 1 who have not been attending classes recently, we are reading The sign of four, and doing the exercises on understanding that come at the end of the book, chapters 1 & 2 for tomorrow.

Happy reading!

Original video

I have seen this video published in one of the blogs I follow (La mansión del inglés), and I think it deserves to be given a bit of promotion, as it is such an original piece of work. If you find it hard to understand, read the transcript here.

Hope you enjoy it!

Test your English

Dialang is a software that allows you to test your English knowledge in five different skills, and it reports your level against the European Framework for Language Learning.

You can download it here, and by taking the test, you will have a better idea of how you are doing, the areas you need to work harder on, or what you are best at.

(Notice the warning about Dialang server being offline from 4 to 7 March)
