The site is especially designed for learners from Vietnam and Indonesia, since there are also translations in these languages
Helen Baumung's comment, January 20, 2015 11:10 AM
this australian network website provides lots of videos that can help improving your english skills. Basics like how to use plurals or pronouns. But i don´t really know how stuff like "finding homes for unwanted dogs" can help improving the language (besides of listening to the language, but you could just watch a movie in English then ;-) ) Anyway, clear website, easy to navigate and find the episodes of english bites
Tobias Mielke's comment, July 14, 2015 11:32 AM
Australia Network created the page in cooperation with IELTS. The Topics are up to date and well organized, they provide you with Information, videos and tasks and answers. It can be very usefull for English teachers because the given PDFs reduce the time you need to prepare a lesson. Also students have the chance to search for topics they are interested in and get a lot of Information, tips and tasks to do on their own.
