BBC 6 minute English

Why not listening to 6 minutes of English every day while reading the script? It will help you to pronounce English more correctly. You can even do a dictation (that will help you to write more accurately) and then check your answers!
Go to the following link:

BBC 6 minute English

Watch one of them here, as an example:


And what about the three poems they mention? Which one do you like most? What about your favourite poem? Who wrote it? Is it in English? Has anybody uploaded it to you tube or will you perhaps do it in the future?

How do I love thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
