We often receive emails and messages from advanced English learners telling us that our materials are too easy for them. Learner, on our website you will find exercises, articles, essays, audio files and forum discussions for all levels. Just take a good look around and complete some of the tests. In addition, you can take part in the special English course 'English For Winners'.
Now, let's start with our first grammar topic -- the personal pronouns. How did you like this lesson? So, you are already familiar with the personal pronouns? That's great because this means you can try out your first English grammar test. It contains 10 questions each of which has 4 answers. Only one of those answers is correct as the test is "multiple choice". Are you ready for the test? Then please click here. Now, how many of the test questions did you get right? You don't need to worry if some of your answers were wrong because you can repeat the test as often as you like until you get all the answers right. That's the advantage of our interactive tests -- you can practise them many times and you will see how fast your English improves. It's time now for some listening practice.
We have created an audio English course for you that contains 29 short texts. You can listen to every text if you click on the "Listen to" link which you will find at the top and the bottom of every page. The text is spoken by my friend and colleague Sue Darville who also comes from England. Let's start with the Introduction. At the bottom of the text page you will also find a link to a PDF file. If you are an English teacher, you can download the PDF page, print it off and photocopy it for your students.
How did you like your first email English lesson? Could you understand everything that my friend, Sue Darville says in the audio recording? Did you find out what city Sue comes from? I would like to learn more about you, too. What country are you from? If you want to communicate with me, please use our forum. You can register on the forum for free -- it takes just 2 minutes. Simply select a forum user name such as Learner and a password, for example "Learnernow". Once you have registered on the forum, you will get an email. Please click on the link to confirm your registration. Here is the forum registration page.
Many thanks for your interest. You will receive your next email English lessons in a few days. Until then.
