Learn English with videos and improve your pronunciation

Hi there!

Are you having a nice weekend? Me too, thank you very much. Just a couple of suggestions to keep you busy for a few minutes:

- Do you enjoy watching videos in English but miss the transcription (AND the translation, why not?) of the words in them? Then this is your site: yappr, a great source of videos made just for you. You can browse them either by categories or levels. There is a huge variety of videos (TV ads, music, movie extracts, sports...) and they're updated daily.

- Tired of trying to pronounce English correctly? Why don't you go and visit YAKIToMe? It's a great site to improve your pronunciation. An explanation of how it works here. Hope you try it and tell me if it worked for you. Don't get disappointed by the fact that you need to register, because it's worth it!


News on Crime

Do you feel you need to read (a little bit more) about crime on the news? I'll take the liberty to remind you a wonderful resource: Here is the perfect site!

A great place with authentic, updated news + different types of exercises:

- vocabulary exercises
- word selection exercises
- multiple choice exercises
- sequencing
- general comprehension

PLUS audio and visual aids!

The news are classified by topics (access the crime-related stories here) and channels.

Great way to train for your tests!
(and also to learn English, by the way)



Looking for a job

Long time no write and all that!

Here we are again, this time to look at how to find a job in an English-speaking environment.

I already gave you some websites where to look for jobs. Here you are some websites that help you write a cover letter + design your CV + prepare for your interview:

- Cover Letter Etiquette
- CareerBuilder
- Jobsearch.about
- Videos about news on the jobs world

Plus the videos you were expecting:

- how to apply
- general tips for the job interview
- how to handle the questions during the interview itself

Good luck!
