I believe games are something that many of us are interested in. Mark Prensky has compiled various games for various subjects and levels into one site spreegames. It contains additional information on who it is for as well as aims for each. Enjoy exploring :)

Timelines of Britain

Learning the English language is not only covering grammar and vocabulary. It involves discussing various themes, developing skills and it also entails discovering facts and figures about English speaking countries. If you would like to have more info on Britain (and not only) or if you are simply interested in history per se, I suggest visiting Timelines - a site that offers information on events, videos of some quite remarkable happenings in history and, if you are not so sure about your knowledge of English, there are video transcripts with text available :)

Enjoy intelligent entertainment!
Any comments or questions - don't hesitate to ask :)

Did you know that the Himalayas translate from Sanskrit as "abode of the snow"? If you wish to find out more about the "top of the world", check it out here, on BBC.

Nature and animals

It is becoming less and less important to learn English as a foreign language in a secondary school. Instead, it is turning into learning about the world, nature, people and cultures. For those of you who love animals and are interested in learning more about them, I would like to suggest exploring the following sites:

ARKIVE offers a collection of photos and videos of plants and animals. You can choose a region and explore its wildlife. It is also possible to play a game. For example, I tried a climate change quiz and it turned out I don't know enough about it :)

EXPLORE offers photos, high-quality documentaries and live webcam feeds. I believe you will not be disappointed :)

Have fun and learn something new every day!
