The Black Hole - Phrasal Verbs

Activate your listening skills with a short story, then enhance your understanding with a short video, and finally activate some phrasal verbs with a substitution exercise. In the story of the Black Hole, an office worker is waiting for the photocopier to finish copying. There's a problem with the copier and he kicks the machine in frustration. A moment later a sheet of paper emerges with a large black circle printed on it. The man visually examines the circle on the sheet of paper and is puzzled. He puts the paper down and opens the lid of the copier to see what the problem is. He closes the lid of the copier, checks the time on his watch, and takes a final drink from a white plastic cup. He places the plastic cap on the black circle on the sheet of paper and is shocked to see that the plastic cup disappears. Puzzled, he looks closely at the sheet of paper and the black circle. He touches the black circle tentatively before putting his hand into the circle. His hand disappears...

5 Random British English Lessons

Here are three random British English lessons taken from the 227 British English lessons currently in the Britlish Library. I add new lessons every week, 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.

Present Perfect - GA6

Present Perfect - GA6

I explained about the Key Verbs, be, do, and have and their inflected tenses in Grammar Activation Pack 1. I have looked at the simple and continuous aspects, both present and past tense in Grammar Activation Packs 2 to 5. In this Grammar Activation Pack, I am going to tell you how the third of the key verbs, have, is used for the perfect aspect, present tense. When a form of the verb have is not followed by a past participle it is acting as a main verb, not an auxiliary verb and the perfect aspect is not formed. We only have the perfect aspect if one of the inflected forms of have comes before a past participle. This British English grammar is essential for all students of English and the many exercises in the pack will help you master it quickly and enjoyably.


Pronunciation Activation Pack 19 - The Vowel in Boat / əʊ /

Pronunciation Activation Pack 19 - The Vowel in Boat / əʊ /

Activate the Vowel in Boat / əʊ / with this Pronunciation Activation Pack. In this Pronunciation Activation Pack we will be looking at the seventh gliding vowel / əʊ /. We will look at the letter combinations that give the / əʊ / sound. We will look at lots of words which have the / əʊ / sound in them. Finally, we will activate your ability to hear and produce the / əʊ / sound correctly. Letter Combinations for / əʊ / - This gliding vowel sound has these letter combinations: O, OE, OW, OA, and OU, and rarely OUGH, and EAU. There are two other vowel sounds which cause confusion with the / əʊ / sound. These are the / ɔː / and the / ɒ / pure vowel sounds. I looked at the minimal pairs / ɔː / vs / əʊ / in Pronunciation Activation Pack 8 – the Vowel in Horse, so I will not cover it in this lesson. As I promised in Pronunciation Activation Pack 12 – the Vowel in Clock, I will look at the / ɒ / vs / əʊ / minimal pairs in this lesson. Pronunciation Activation Pack 19 - The Vowel in Boat / əʊ /


Level Test - 100 Questions

Level Test - 100 Questions

This 100-question test will give you a reasonable indication of your current level of English. Whatever your level, the Britlish Library lessons will help you to improve it quickly.

How to Read Your Results

Take the test and complete all 100 questions. Your score will reflect your level:

  • 0 to 35 means you are pre-intermediate or lower (A1 to A2)
  • 36 to 50 means you are intermediate (B1)
  • 51 to 85 means you are upper intermediate (B2)
  • 85 to 100 means you are advanced or higher (C1 to C2)

Spelling Skills Development

Spelling Skills Development

English spelling is notoriously difficult, even for native English speakers. Very often, the letters used to spell the word and the pronunciation of the word differ greatly. It can be embarrassing to make spelling errors in emails or other correspondence. Such spelling mistakes can damage your career prospects. I designed this English Activation Pack to activate your English spelling skills. For students who are taking English exams, a lot of spelling mistakes can have a detrimental effect on your overall score. In the writing part of the exam, you will lose valuable marks for spelling mistakes. In the listening part of the exam, you will lose valuable marks if you can’t understand how words are spelt. I have created this English Activation Pack to help you avoid spelling mistakes for over 180 words in English and in your exams.


Writing Dates

Writing Dates

Rocío from Spain asked about a lesson on how to write dates. We are spoilt for choice when writing dates, but this choice makes it seem complicated. The general rule to follow is that you are consistent in your choice of style and that you choose a style appropriate to your audience. The more complicated the style, the more formal the audience. This lesson will show you all the ways to write dates in British English and will give you some listening and writing practice with dates, too.
