Cool Youtube channels to improve your English

What can you do to improve your language level and keep it alive after you finish all the levels in a language school? 

I have some hardworking and motivated students who are about to complete the last level in our language school, and they are very scared that they will forget what they have learned if there is no course or a teacher asking them to fulfill some tasks.

It is so sad to see that we can’t teach them to walk alone on this path although we can make them understand and use a lot of miscellaneous grammar items and advanced vocabulary. I get upset when I hear they are looking for another course to practice.

We all know that learning a language is a never-ending way! So, you have to learn what you can do to get better when no teacher assigns you different tasks or a language school that checks your level with scheduled exams.

I have always tried to share resources here to help you to shape your own learning, and in this post, I would like to point out some YouTube channels that can assist you to keep walking on this road.

1 English Class 101  You can find hundreds of audio and video lessons. It is also possible to download their various apps or visit their website to reach more resources. 

 

2 Australia Plus  From beginner level to advanced level, they offer hundred of videos covering business, lifestyle, news and sport, education and English language learning from an Australian perspective.

3 ABA English  Actually, ABA English is an online learning platform which offers affordable premium courses. Their YouTube channel also provides a lot of interesting and enjoyable short films and video lessons.

4 Rachel’s English   This channel is an online American English pronunciation resource. All videos have closed captioning to help non-native speakers understand. New videos added every week!

    • Hi Allen,
      Thank you very much for your kind words.
      I think you did a great job in there. It seems like a coursebook CD, and I know how difficult to create all those interactions in Flash.
      Articulate Storyline is much easier to use, and there are more templates which can save your time.
      I will try yours with my junior classes; I wonder their reactions.
      By the way, why don’t we create something together?
      Cheers
