Links for Learners

Attention English-learners! If you are connected to the Internet, you are never far from some amazing places to practice and improve your English! Let this collection of links from students and teachers be your gateway to  improved English in the real world. (Remember that the virtual world is always changing, and sometimes dangerous–see “NOTES” at the bottom of this page.) At the moment, you’ll find tons of links on our old site: http://www.krigline.com/learner_links.htmhttp://www.krigline.com.cn/learner_links.htm,

But while we work to test those links and add them to EFLsuccess, try these: [♥ means “favorite”]

♥ Dictionaries: Longman English Dictionary     Farlex Free Dictionary   Farlex for idioms    Princeton’s WordNetWeb dictionary     UsingEnglish.com (ESL resources, including the definition of sayings)

For Students

For teachers:

For those learning other languages (not specifically English). [I’m just starting to look for Cantonese resources, and will post the links here–mainly so I can come back when I have more time]:

NOTES: Visiting websites can allow viruses into your computer. Be sure your anti-virus software is up to date! Since the web is constantly changing, it is impossible to keep up with broken links–if something doesn’t work, you might try to Google it! Also, many websites outside China do not always work inside China (where I teach); sorry if you can’t connect from your location.
 

EFL/ESL Teachers: Do you have “favorite links” that we need to know about? Write to me, and if we like them too we’ll add your suggestions to EFLsuccess.com. See “About us” for an email address.

Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • July English Corner

    Welcome back to the English corner and this time I’ll give you some tips on how to improve your speaking. Many internationals are so concerned with making mistakes in their spoken English that they are very reluctant to practice speaking. A better objective is to focus on fluency rather than accuracy. That is to say, just speak regardless of whether or not you make mistakes. I know it’s difficult, because I went through the same experience when I learned Chinese in Shanghai. Practice as much as possible. Take advantage of English Corners, conversation partners, etc., and take classes that are specifically designed to help improve conversational skills. This month, try to overcome your fear of speaking, and don’t forget to check out next month’s EFLsuccess.com English Corner.  © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

    “Contentment consists not in adding more fuel but in taking away some fire; not in multiplying wealth, but in subtracting men’s desires.”
    –Thomas Fuller (1608-1661; American inventor)
