I like this link because we can improve our listing skills by hearing the news. We get a lot of information about the Canada or all around. This link talked about hot issues. That’s way we can’t loss our focus or concentration. So we can learn new vocabulary and good accent by listing the news with native speakers.

I like this link a lot because it gives tips that how we can improve our listening. They said that if we want to watch English movie, first watch in your own native language .after knowing the story. Then watch with English subtitle, after this without subtitle. But it took a lot time so its belter to watch TV shows.it takes twenty minutes. And listing music is good but in music they don’t care about grammar. It’s good for lyrics.so if we want to be good in grammar don’t listen or concentrate on music

Tell me if this is a useful site for learning how to pronounce English words.

Thank you very much for the useful site. I found it also has translation of many languages and when I clicked " define your entry HERE ", there was a page of dictionary showing the meanings and usage examples of the words. It's really convenient for learning English.

Hello All!
I just heard about something that is really wonderful: a project translating all written material on the internet into all (yes, did mean to say ALL!) languages . . . and it also might be a valuable free resource for learners wishing to study a foreign language too!
http://duolingo.com/
Here is a video on YouTube explaining how it works!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyzJ2Qq9Abs&feature=youtube_gdata_player
An if you would like to hear more from the person heading up this incredibly beautiful project, Luis von Ahn, here is his presentation on Massive-scale online collaboration (the DuoLingo idea is just one example of this concept).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ht4qiDRZE8&feature=youtube_gdata_player
As multi-linguists, Learners, tell me what you think of this kind of global project. Does it give you any ideas ?Also, have you heard of micro-volunteering ? If you google it, perhaps you can tell us more about it ?
