  8. I think that all this can be very useful to learn English but the best ones for me are: www.lyricstraining.com because you can improve your listening level listening songs and writting their lyrics. Also I enjoyed https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate because in this website you can study English doing loads of funny things like playing games.
    Finally I also love http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/language/ because I think that in this website you can do a lot of things that will help you to learn English. You can watch videos about the latest news in English and then you can listen the pronunciation of the vocabulary.

  9. What I think is that one of the best webs is http://www.lyricstraining.com/ because it's a really funny way to learn english. Listening to the songs you really like you learn a lot of vocabulary and that's basic for having a good base of english. The other web that i love is the bbc news and the bbc learning english. For me is the best web cause it is daily updated and there are a lot of different news from all types which it would be impossible not to become interest in any of them. Therefore I'd like to say that bbc has build a great webpage to learn english and is one of the best well prepared.

  10. I love the page where you practice English by listening to songs, lyricstraining.com. I think you can learn English in a very easy way doing things you like.

    My second favourite page is the BBC's page. It has a lot of interactive resources and the videos you can watch there are always interesting.

    I liked the Oxford page too, because there are normal exercices but in an interactive way.

    In general, I like to learn from the Internet. There you learn English even without studying, becasue a lot of webpages or videos are in English. I think it's a good alternative way of learning.

  11. I think that the most funny way to learn English is doing something that you like, so I believe that the best web to learn English is lyricstraining.com, where you can learn some vocabulary and the lyrics of your favourite songs. Another way to learn English is practising it, and https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate gives you this possibility.
    And if we want to learn by an interactive way we can go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/language/ where we can see a lot of videos and other resources.

  12. Thanks for your comments. Keep them coming. You can include a reference and a link to specific exercises and sections in the webpages. Do you have other favorite websites that you want to share?

  13. All this websites are very interesting and educative, but the ones that I like the most are http://www.lyricstraining.com/ and https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en.
    I think that the first one is good because you can improve your listening skills by listening to songs that you like. You have to pay attention on what they say and you learn in a funny way. Another thing I like is that you can choose the level of the lyrics depending on your english level.
    The second website is very useful because you can practise differents aspects of the english, from the grammar to the vocabulary. There are also a lot of exercices to practise. I think that this website is interesting because you can check what you have failed, and if you know what you have done wrong, this can help you to don't repeat it.

  14. All of the pages that i have visited are very educative and good to learn, but the pages that i like most are http://www.lyricstraining.com/ because is very interesting and funny to learn while you are singing. The other is https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en because it is very easy to use it and it's very orderly.
    Also, the website http://www.naturalreaders.com/index.php it's very interesting because you can play what you want to say, so you can improve your pronunciation.

  15. All this websites are interesting and they have something new to learn, but, personally, my favorites websites have been http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/language/theenglishwespeak/ and https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en

    I maybe have chosen the first website because BBC gives me confidence. Its website has a lot of new things to learn and we don't study some of them at class. For example, I have found a section called "The English We Speak". It has content related to colloquial English which I think that it's the most difficult one.
    The second website is perfect to review the topics we have worked at class. It has a lot of exercises which are very useful. It also has educational and enjoyable games.

    The last website I have chosen is http://www.learnenglishfeelgood.com/
    It has very interesting sections. "American Idioms" it's one of them. I think American English is also important because we usually listen it in TV series or movies that we watch. This website is also useful because it offers you some tests, so you can practise and improve your English.

  16. My favorite link was: http://www.lyricstraining.com, because I think it's a perfect way to can learn english and new words. You can listen your favourite music, because there is a lot of diferent music and at the same time you can learn more the lyrics of your song and you can learn english too! I also liked https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en because there are games to practise your english, and there is a lot of diferent vocabulary and all the grammar that we need to be good at english.
    About the links that are in the post, the most useful for me and the page that I always use it's http://www.wordreference.com/ I think it's a perfect dictionary that always helps me when I don't really know the meaning of a word and gives me examples too.

  17. Well, in my opinion the two best websites are the Oxford one, and the other which was about LyricsTraining.

    I find the Oxford one very interesting and intelecutal. It can be very useful if you want to practise english or even learn new things. And you can also do some tests. It's highly recommendable!
    About the second, LyricsTraining, I think that using song's lyrics as a way of learing words, can be very interesting. In fact I always try to find out what some songs mean by looking for the lyric.

  18. All of the pages I have visted are very fun to learn about english. The page I like most is the http://www.lyricstraining.com/ the page who you can learn english with the songs you like. The other pages also are interesting but for my is a little bit boring. I will use this page to improve my english and to be fun.

  19. In my opinion, all the websites are great to learn english, but the website that I think it's the best for learn english is lyricstraining.com, because you can hear the song that you like, at the same time you write some words.
    I think this website it's the best for spend time learning english and also you can do your reading homework with help.

  28. The two websites I have chosen to practice your English are www.lyricstraining.com because this website it is wonderful to practice because you choose a song you like and you have to complete some gaps from the lyrics. This is a perfect way to learn English because songs are catchy and it is better to learn vocabulary as it has rhythm.
    The other website is https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en because it is the Oxford University website where you can choose in which parts you are not good enough to practice them.

  29. In my opinion, I think that all the websites are good to learn and improve our english, but my favourite is www.lyricstraining.com because it's a funny way to learn. We always listen to the music, but sometimes we don't understand the lyrics. So that's a very good idea to see the lyrics and to learn more vocabulary too.
    Another website that is interesting is http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/language/. In bbc's website, there are a lot of information to learn and the vocabulary is good. It's a little bit serious but wonderful.

  30. All websites are very good, but for me, the most interesting websites are www.lyricstraining.com and https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate. I think so because, the others are normal, not very interesting (for me), but these pages are good because: The first page for me is the best, specially because it has different songs with their own lyrics. I think the second page is interesting because you can find a variety of grammar and vocabulary exercises and you can play games. All these websites in general are useful and interactive. I think that visiting these websites is a good way to improve your English.

  31. I think that the best website is http://www.lyricstraining.com/ because apart from learning English it's also very entertaining and you can learn the lyrics of a lot of songs. The other website that is very interesting is https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en because it's a good way to learn by playing games and making exercices too.

  32. Well, I think that the two best websites for me are https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate and this http://www.lyricstraining.com/play/23284/katy_perry/roar_lyric . The first website is very interesting because here you can practise and improve your English. If you like music a lot in the second website you can find a big variety of music and you will enjoy listening to your favorite music.

  33. I think all of them are very useful and diverse, but the two of them i liked the most are: first, http://www.lyricstraining.com/, because I think listening to music in english and looking at the lyrics is a very good way to learn english, specially vocabulary, and the sounds of the words, and all that is very important, and also is quite funny. Second, https://elt.oup.com/student/headway/intermediate/?cc=global&selLanguage=en, from the Oxford University, because I think it is a very well structured and with good contents webpage, and you can choose in what areas you want to improve your skills, like games, grammar, vocabulary, and the activities are not as heavy as normal class activities.
