For 14 years, I posted video English lessons on my YouTube channel to attract potential English students. My efforts paid off and I taught hundreds of students globally for over a decade until my retirement in 2021. To provide a better learning experience for my students, I have decided to move my video lessons from YouTube to Britlish Library, where students can focus on their studies without distractions from ads and unrelated material. At Britlish, I prioritize the quality of education for my committed students rather than reaching a larger, less engaged audience on YouTube.

Snake is one of D. H. Lawrence's most famous poems and was published in the poetry collection Birds, Beasts and Flowers. I use this poem in this lesson to help you with your pronunciation, your vocabulary, your understanding of the British English IPA chart symbols, and to introduce you to this most beautiful of poems. Poems are a great way to enrich many aspects of your English and I hope that you enjoy the poem and the exercises included in the lesson.
It can be challenging to compile a comprehensive list of the "most difficult to spell" words in the English language because spelling is a subject that can be difficult for individuals for a variety of reasons. However, in this challenge you will be presented with ten English words that are frequently noted as being particularly challenging to spell. Do you think you have what it takes to correctly spell all ten words, and to outperform other students from around the globe by placing yourself at the top of the leaderboard?
I asked the OpenAI Chat to “Explain the riddle of the Sphynx in the style of Shakespeare.” What it said I put in a video which you will find in this lesson. Watch the video and then learn plenty of new vocabulary as well as enhancing your listening skills and your knowlege of the IPA symbols. Then see if you can correctly answer the riddle of the Sphynx and get a perfect score in the challenge.
I asked the OpenAI ChatGPT: "How useful are the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols for improving pronunciation for learners of English?" What it said I put in a video which you will find in this British English lesson. Watch the video and then do the self-test exercises to help you learn, remember, and use the 44 British English IPA symbols. Then you can put your skills to the test in the challenge.
I asked the OpenAI ChatGPT to "Tell me how to use everybody or nobody except in an English sentence." What it said I put in a video which you will find in this lesson along with plenty of self-test exercises to give you practice in using these two confusable words. Watch the video and then you should know enough about how to use everybody, nobody, and except, to get a perfect score in this challenge
