Learning English Autonomously Solutions


1. E-learning Activities

  • Listening to Songs: This section lets learners listen to and download English songs, learn the lyrics, and complete activities related to the song. The songs are categorised into various sections, such as Disney songs, motivational songs, song parodies, and others. This helps motivate students to enjoy learning English in a fun way.

  • Listening to Podcasts: We love watching YouTube videos in our free time. This section links various YouTube channels suitable for ESL learners and provides them with exercises based on the videos. The topics discussed in the videos are interesting and relevant for learners to build their general knowledge.

  • Listening to Stories: Instead of boring classroom lectures and slide presentations, why not learn English by listening to stories worldwide? Learners get to listen to and download many stories ranging from Aesop’s Fables to literature works of famous writers in the past, and with exercises and discussions based on the stories they have listened to. Some stories come with a video for you to view for easier understanding.

  • Reading Stories: If you dislike listening to stories, you can read them! This section lets learners download and read a collection of stories divided into unique categories. Dive into your imagination in the stories selected to entertain and educate you with life lessons. Some stories even have interactive features that challenge you as an English language learner and reader.

  • Role Play, Oral Presentation, and Group Interaction: These three sections let learners explore the fun part of speaking in English. You can watch other ESL learners in videos speaking, presenting, and interacting in English. The videos range from simple discussion topics to serious general issues such as stress management or drug abuse, from movie commentaries to forum discussions, from talking about your hometown to demonstrating how to play golf. If these students in the video can do it, so can you!


2. Forum

  • Learners can access the forum section to discuss various materials on the website–the stories, songs, podcasts, or videos in the speaking sections. This section encourages learners to share their opinions with others healthily and interact with other learners who are using the website.


3. Language Games

  • Learners get to learn and improve their vocabulary and English skills while playing! This section links to other websites that provide gaming elements, such as Quizlet and Wisc Online. Several game sets have been prepared for learners to play with, and all can be accessed from this section without registering.
