1. E-learning Activities

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

  • Listening to Podcasts: We love to watch YouTube videos during our free time. This section links various YouTube channels which are suitable and good for ESL learners and provide 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 around the world? Learners get to listen and download many stories ranging from Aesop’s Fables to literature work 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 do not like to listen 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 which are selected to entertain as well as educate you with life lessons. Some stories even come with interactive features which challenge you as an English language learner and reader.

  • Role Play, Oral Presentation, and Group Interaction: These 3 sections let learners explore the fun part of speaking in English. You get to watch other ESL learners in videos of them 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. These sections offer many interesting ways for learners to practise their English language skills. It also shows that if these students in the video can do it, so can you!

2. Forum

This section encourages learners to share their opinions with others in a healthy way and interact with other learners who are using the website.
