EFL Links (overview)

EFL Links for learners & teachers

Today, as the students in these photos demonstrate, the world is at your fingertips. Let EFLsuccess’ virtual collection of links for language students and teachers be your gateway to English success!

Whether you are an English-learner or EFL/ESL teacher, you should know that the World Wide Web is a remarkable resource! This section of EFLsuccess.com is here to link you to the help you need to successfully reach your language goals.

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 used to teach); sorry if you can’t connect from your location.

(unfortunately, many news and “Google-related” sites are blocked in China)


We like to work with instrumental music playing, but you’ll find all kinds of music (and more) at the following sites:


Because we have spent over 15 years teaching in China, it should be no surprise that many of our resources were designed with Chinese students in mind. Here are some helpful resources about China.


There are LOTS of websites about America, but you may have missed these:


Every few years I seem to be looking for a new camera; here are some website I’ve found helpful.
  • Digital Photography review is very comprehensive and professional: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/. You’ll find some of the most in-depth reviews on the web, including “shutter lag” (the time between when you push the button and when the camera takes a photo–this is what I hate most about digital cameras). (I posted a review of the Canon A630 on that website)
  • One of best things about this UK website is a shutter lag comparison chart (but you can also navigate to good reviews, an advice section and more). http://www.cameras.co.uk
  • Additional sites with insightful reviews: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech.htm, www.steves-digicams.com, www.epinions.com/Digital_Cameras (I have posted a review of the Canon A630 on that website, too)
  • I’ve posted lots of photos from China, the USA and elsewhere on my old website: http://www.krigline.com/photos.htm. That page also lists the cameras we’ve used over the years.

Family and Personal (links we like; maybe you will too!)

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)
