EUR-Lex - Simple search

EUR-Lex - Simple search | TELT | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

This search engine allows you to access the database of European legislation in any EU language and it brings up texts which are available in at least two languages.

 

My colleague Margarita Georgieva who teaches translation at the University of Nice explains:

 

"If you are looking for legislative texts or any specialized texts, there is a database of translations which has both English and French versions - http://eur-lex.europa.eu/
You can search for keywords. From tissue paper to toothpaste and fisheries... anything you think of, they have it.  […] They are great to use in class - to compare translations and suggest improvements or to learn vocabulary."

English Vocabulary - LanguageGuide.org

English Vocabulary - LanguageGuide.org | TELT | Scoop.it

"Practice English vocabulary, the alphabet, and numbers. Place your cursor over an image to hear it pronounced aloud."

 

This is a good audio-picture dictionary for English (and other languages).  There are also grammar overviews and a test mode where you can quiz yourself.

 

This type of site is never going to replace rich input and interaction, but you can use it for revision or to help learn vocabulary.
