Web Sites for You

Ongoing work: I am making changes and additions to the list of sites in the right-hand column of this page. The latest: a list of sites which you should visit if you are thinking of taking an exam such as IELTS, FCE, PET, KET, CPE and the like.

Meanwhile, have a listen to the latest 'Words In The News' exercise on the BBC.

Watch this space - and please do leave a comment.

October 2006: New Students in Rome

Welcome to all new students in my classes at the British Council Rome!

This Blog, with the
MetroZine, will be a space for you to regard as your home on the Net!

The idea of the Blog is to communicate with you between lessons and help you use Internet to your best advantage.

There are hundreds of websites specifically aimed at helping students of English. I've listed a very few of them in the Permanent Collection of pages in the right-hand column. I promise to add more soon.

This Blog is interactive. You are strongly encouraged to leave a comment each time you visit a web site. That way, we can form a community of students.

To express yourself online, and read other students' creative writing, the
MetroZine is your place. Go there now, and send your comment. You'll find that it isn't only texts of people's homework - there is much more.

Come back here soon for the next message.

Happy English learning!

Mike
