I know that your mind is most likely on other things right now, things like viruses, your job, your family, etc. However, from time to time you might want to take a break from all the worry and anxiety of the moment. If you find yourself feeling that way, then perhaps you might want to take a few minutes and practice your listening skills. One of the better websites to use for this is Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab. On this site, there are many listening activities to explore, and you can practice according to your level: beginning, intermediate, and advanced.

When learning a language, a dictionary is an absolute must. For many years, when it came to using a dictionary, you only had a couple of options, and all them involved carrying around a big, thick book everywhere you went. Today, however, there are many dictionaries online that you can use from your computer or even cellphone.
But which online dictionary should I use? There are so many to choose from.
Well, the folks at waketech.com have an answer for you.

Do you need to practice choosing the correct verb tense? Do you need to work on using conditionals correctly? How about modals or gerunds? Maybe you want to find some good reading material such as an online newspaper from other parts of the world or an interesting free magazine. Or, perhaps you would like to read a classic book or use online reference materials.
Well, EnglishPage.com has that and much more. This site is one of my favorites, especially for its verb tense practice exercises.
