The holidays are upon us and everyone's taking time away from work and school to spend time relaxing. But it's good to keep working on your English skills outside of the classroom so you don't lose your skills. There are a lot of websites available that will go into the details of grammar or vocabulary, but they can be hard to engage with if they provide no interactivity. These are some of our favorite websites for continuous learning, either through their methods or through their design.
Soon, we will be launching our own FREE pronunciation app, where you can work on your English skills whenever you're not in class with your BEA Trainer. Be sure to follow our blog and social media (all linked in the side bar) to keep up with our latest news!
ComicsEnglish.com is a website that has a funny or clever comic and then a small section underneath that explains the vocabulary used and the context of the joke. Some of the comics even have a small quiz underneath. It's great for learning about those small things that someone who doesn't have fluency may not catch!
Learn Parrot This website from Learn Parrot offers a massive grammar section and an enormous section devoted to topic-based English such as emailing, telephoning, meetings, travelling etc. All of this is absolutely free. Just create your own free password to access the content. You'll need a lot of time!
TV411.org uses videos as a learning format, since the website ties into a public television show aimed at English learners in the United States. The website has videos that come with resources as well as single lessons on English composition, vocabulary, and comprehension.
Do you know of other interesting websites to practice English with? Let us know in the comments! And remember, websites are great to practice with, but real fluency is achieved through working with a teacher and hard work.
