Master the art of natural English with our British English Collocation Activities! Collocations are pairs or groups of words that are commonly used together and are essential for sounding like a native speaker. These activities will help you learn some of the most common collocations, and avoid mistakes that give away that you are not a native speaker. Collocations can be difficult to guess from the words alone, therefore, it's important to learn them individually. Our activities are designed to make it easy for you to improve your language skills and sound more natural. Start practicing today and take your English language proficiency to the next level.


These Activities are designed to help you improve your pronunciation and communication skills in English. Whether you have a strong grasp of grammar and vocabulary or not, clear pronunciation is essential for effective communication. Through these activities, you will learn the nuances of English speech, including elision, simplification, intonation, stress, and rhythm, and develop the ability to understand spoken English. Additionally, you will gain a deeper understanding of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols and improve your pronunciation, making you a more confident and effective communicator in the English language.


Did you know that there are over 600,000 words in English? That's a lot of words, and far more than any human being could ever manage to learn. Even Shakespeare only used around 55,000 different words in all of his works. Mind you, he did actually invent quite a few of them. To get a good mastery of English, you do need to expand your vocabulary as much as possible. The more words you know, the better your English will be. The Activities here will help you to quickly develop your vocabulary.


Eliminate confusion with our English confusable words activities! Even native speakers sometimes mix up words like "their" and "there". These activities provide detailed explanations and exercises to help you use these commonly confused words correctly and avoid mistakes in the future. Whether you're a student or a professional, our activities are designed to help you master these tricky words and take your English language proficiency to the next level. Improve your language skills and avoid confusion with our confusable words activities today!
