Test your spelling skills with the Oxford Dictionaries Spelling Challenge. Can you spell words like quiescent, millennium, accommodation, and bureaucracy? Could you get a perfect score on the fiendish level? Very easy to use - just listen and type. Good practice before the Oxford Placement Test - the listening part.
Looks like a website for children but IT'S NOT. A great resource for those who want to focus on pron; mini-games, minimal pairs, flashcards, pron chart quizes and even an entry / exit test. There's a mobile app too but I haven't tested it yet.
The main focus of this free website is grammar. You'll find a wide range of resources here including - lessons, PDF revisions sheets, practice exercises and videos. (check out the one where you need to find 10 grammar mistakes in an interview with Rafael Nadal)
The site can be used by students and teachers, and many materials can be used as homework. There is also a nice 'ASK US' section where the authors answer questions asked by email, twitter or facebook.
Anglo-Link's YouTube Channel is a place where you can watch 34 video lessons (more to come?), covering all sorts of topics from phrasal verbs to diphthongs. The videos vary in length from 6 to 20 minutes. The channel goes with Anglo-Link website http://www.anglo-link.com/index.php?/home where you can find other stuff, however, some of the content on the website requires registration.
If you like learning with YouTube - check out Anglo-Link, your students might find it useful.
If your kids are like mine, they don’t take well to their parents giving them advice on much of anything — academics, athletics, you name it. In many ways, I am thankful for this. My kids are independent and have learned to do their homework on their own. But I had to step in recently to help my middle schooler with a term paper that needed a lot of help. I started with my red pen, crossing out sentences and circling misspelled words. Needless to say, it didn’t go well. I ended up buying him a book on Amazon.com on “how to write a good term paper,” put it on his desk and hoped he would read it. So much for parental guidance. According to Robert Menzimer, executive director of the Oakland, California-based Writer Coach program, which provides one-on-one tutoring to help students develop writing and critical thinking skills, many parents feel completely at sea about offering writing support. “Math assignments? No problem. Science projects? Absolutely. An essay for English? Lemme out of here!” says Menzimer. And based on his many conversations over the years with adults at our volunteer recruiting booths, it’s not hard to see why: adults are often as freaked out about writing as kids are. “They (adults) are fraught with anxiety over what they perceive as their lack of writing skills,” says Menzimer, “and say they’ve been plagued by this anxiety their whole lives, including into their professions.”
