English Grammar Website

www.ego4u.com/en/cram-up/grammar
Полезный сайт как для преподавателей, так и для изучающих язык.
Что важно: помимо теории, которая есть практически на каждом сайте, здесь есть еще и упражнения, причем в достаточном количестве. Упражнения на лексику тоже есть, но их довольно мало.
Уровень - где-то до Pre-Intermediate/Imtermediate

From the creators: "We put our first exercises online in April 2000. Our target group: just a handful of students to whom we were giving private tuition then. A year later, we were very surprised to find that our exercises were used by approx. 20 visitors per day. They found our sites via search engines. This encouraged us to offer more exercises on the internet and in August 2001 we started ego4u. Now we have approx. 45,000 users per day, lots of them are regular visitors."

Podcasts - Travelling&Tourism

Space Tourism
What does weightlessness feel like? According to Chris Hadfield, Sally Ride, and Dennis Tito, it’s a feeling of freedom that is difficult to explain.

One-way ticket to Mars
A company from the Netherlands is planning to send a group of people on a one-way trip to the planet Mars.
www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/gene...

Dark Tourism
Have you heard of 'dark tourism'? This is travel to places that are connected with bad or sinister things. Destinations like the concentration camp at Auschwitz, the site of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl in present-day Ukraine, and Ground Zero in New York, are all popular places to visit.
www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/gene...

Cruise ships
Footage from the Costa Concordia disaster may have tourists questioning their upcoming vacation plans. While a disaster like this is unlikely, there are other dangers related to cruising that people should think about before booking.
www.esl-library.com/blog/2012/01/25/podcast-cru...

Is there more of the world to explore?
There are many famous explorers - people who have travelled to and discovered new parts of the world. Nowadays, it seems that every corner of our planet has been explored. Technology and modern transport means we can get to the most remote parts. So does this mean there is nowhere left to explore?

LyricsTraining)))))))))

About LyricsTraining
LyricsTraining is an easy and fun way to learn and improve your foreign languages skills, through the music videos and the lyrics of your favorite songs.
LyricsTraining also has a special Karaoke mode that lets you sing and enjoy the full lyrics.

LyricsTraining and Language Learning

LyricsTraining is a perfect way to learn and improve your skills with other languages.
LyricsTraining helps you to learn new vocabulary and expressions, and reinforce grammar concepts through continuous exercise of writing the missing words.
But above all, LyricsTraining helps you train your ear to dramatically improve your capacity to recognize sounds and words of a foreign language in a very short time, training your brain almost unconsciously, whether you know the meaning of all the words or not.
Recent studies have shown that simple exposure to the sounds of another language sets up in our brain the structures and connections necessary for learning it.
In addition to that, music is a fun way to learn and listening to different accents and pronunciations allows greater flexibility to test to your ability to recognize the different sound patterns of another language. This is very different from the typical listening exercises in language classes, where the pronunciation is too perfect, which is not entirely practical in a real environment.
LyricsTraining is also a fun way to learn the lyrics of your favorite songs.
