I hope you will enjoy the 230 British English lessons in the Britlish Library. I have designed the lessons to help you improve all areas of your English skills from writing and speaking, to listening and reading.
The British English lessons in the Britlish Library are full of multimedia content in the form of videos, audio files, animations, and engaging image files. This multimedia content makes learning British English much more fun and engaging than simply reading text in a book.
Here are some random British English lessons taken from the 230 British English lessons currently in the Britlish Library. I add new lessons regularly, so be sure to bookmark this page. Sign up for a free membership and you will get an email each time I add a new lesson to the library.
Created using industry-leading e-learning software, English Mysteries are finding new ways to make learning interesting, engaging, and effective, through the gamification of the learning process. Interact with each character and ask questions to help you uncover their secrets and reveal the clues that will help you accuse the right character of the crime. To check that you understand everything you have been told by each character, you will have to pass a knowledge check before progressing to the next round. You will find important clues in each round which, if you pay careful attention, will help you understand each character’s motives for committing the crime. As you investigate the characters you will come to understand them and the little secrets they might rather keep hidden. You get hours of entertaining content including hundreds of carefully crafted images, numerous sound files, plenty of knowledge checks, a glossary to help you, numerous clues to consider and much, much more besides. With compelling story lines and interesting characters, English Mysteries help the student learn English by fully engaging them in each round of the game. To correctly solve the mystery, the player must understand what they are reading, hearing, and learning.
