This is an online picture dictionary, with everything from the alphabet to parts of the body to farm animals.
Oxford University Press
elt.oup.com/learning_resources
This site from Oxford University Press has activities to practice spelling, grammar, pronunciation, and listening. A bit difficult to navigate, so more suitable for advanced learners and savvy internet users.
Also, remember that Mango Languages is available to you through the Library! It features ESL lessons for Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese speakers. (First time users must create a profile in order to access Mango Languages.)
And don't forget YouTube. Whatever you'd like to learn — an explanation of a grammar term, idioms, a set of vocabulary — enter it in the search field and an array of videos are sure to come up. I hope some of these sites prove useful. Enjoy! And please add your own favorite sites in the comments.

Ways to improve your English, check it out.



Ways to improve your English:
Read and listen a lot:
Read new articles and underline or circle the new ones, remember one of the most important thing is listening, in this way you will be a great speaker. Commonly people are worrying to learning in grammar all the time, that's a mistake, because you should speak automatically, you are not a robot but a human being. When you are reading a book, memorizing the new vocabularies, and do that as much as possible.
This one could figure out strange or stupid thing, but stand in front of the mirror and it will be your confident, your teacher, speak as much as possible and at the same time, record your own voice. Of course, you will be more self-confident to speak with your friends.
Use labels with English words on things in your house: It's really helpful when I started to practise English I used to label in Portuguese (for things) cell phone (labels) and everything I wrote the nouns and fixed all every time I was looking for them, I mean use your mother tongue and label everything in English. Really helpful.


Don't be afraid if you cannot speak fluent and no worry about the mistakes, Ice breaking (Break your shyness) and self-confident for speaking without fear, writing in English, as I mentioned previously, label everything you can surround you, and getting started to develop your ability, after all the most important thing is the communication. 

Listen to broadcast radios, 'cause in this way you are going to keep in touch with different accents, by the way, one of the most important thing you should contact with different spellings, no worry if you decided to speak American or British ones, but listen to different accents definitely is the most relevant for English learners. 

In addition, it's recommendable you also listen to podcasts I recommend you visit http://www.voanews.com or BBC's Website http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcast . 

In conclusion, being motivated, willpower and dedication is the best recipe, overcoming your difficulties and carry on, practise makes perfect, the more you do, more you get. Keep an eye on English tips' blog and if you liked recommend it for your friends. sincerely, I hope you liked this entry, good to see you, guys.

David Crystal - Should English be taught as a 'global' language?



Source: http://www.macmillanglobal.com

After watching this awesome video, I think David is right, English should be teach as a global English, and the listening comprehension for example, must be understood as recommendable for English learners keep in touch through different accents, not speaking but listening to. A good example is the broadcast radios, one of the most interesting tip is listen to them.We should contact with different English standards, besides if we have the opportunity to travel to a foreign country, for instance in England we are facing the problem to find out different kind accents, in addition we are non-native Learners, even we have decided to learn British or American standard, sometimes we mix with both, the most important thing is practising a real English. By the way, many thanks for Teacher Bruno owner on http://teacherbruno1.blogspot.com/

FLUENCY IN ENGLISH


FLUENCY IN ENGLISH

Frequently it’s a simple question...what’s happening? I’ve been studying hard for long years, my English teacher is excellent and I’m not able to start a dialogue…I also travelled abroad to a native country but I didn’t get the fluency needing to communicate. Is it possible? Unfortunately, yes!

This is happen ‘cause the shameless block your ability and you think you are not able to speak fluent, even you have a good vocabulary but something else block your ability to communicate.

Difficult to understanding is another problem, specially due the diversity of accents and dialectics, particularly I recommend you keep in touch through different accents, listen to broadcast radios, you should contact with American, Australian, Irish, or British ones, even you have decided to speak one Standard, this way your listening adapt itself for different accents.

Developing the ability of listening, it’s very simple way to understanding. Do you feel comfortable, or have some problems? I also recommend about the usage of Skype, after download the programme sign up for free and getting in touch with people worldwide http://www.speaking24.com . That’s all for today, remember practise makes perfect! Keep Practising, keep studying, and never give up.
