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

  • August English Corner

    This month we will look at two practical ways to improve your English. First, pick a video (i.e., movie) with a lot of action and call a friend who also wants to improve listening and speaking skills. Have one person face the TV and the other face away. Show a portion of the video but turn off the volume. The person facing the TV describes the scene to the person facing away. Then the person facing away describes what he heard. Finally, watch the video together with the sound to see how accurate you were. Than trade places, and do it again for other clips. Secondly, build up your vocabulary schema by making labels for the various objects, appliances, furniture, etc., around your home or apartment–each month, label many things you don’t know how to say in English. Every time you walk around your home you will see these labels and it will help to reinforce the vocabulary. It is also helpful to be able to associate the real object with the name in your memory. Visit again next month!  © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

    The world seldom notices who the teachers are, but civilization depends on what they do and what they say.
