Learn English provides grammar, conversation, and lots of other learning features that make it a popular, if poorly designed, resource for ESL students and teachers.
Explanations, examples, and tests of all basic grammar principles are available under the “English Grammar” section. The site also includes vocabulary, pronunciation and teaching resources.
The site describes itself as follows:
Since 1999 Learn English has served up a wealth of resources to help people around the world learn English free online. From dictation and pronunciation files, sections on the basics of English, spelling, grammar and other activities such as games, tests and quizzes. In addition there is an extensive vocabulary section which uses pictures and sound and sections on British culture, customs and traditions. The teacher’s section is my attempt to share some of my experience and also provides advice on how to use this site to enrich your lessons along with lesson plans and handouts.
Unfortunately, the site’s design is fairly unweildy and awkwardly littered with advertisements that distract from the otherwise generally good content. The site appears to be funded from advertising and sponsorship alone.
