You have an interesting site there. Love the article on R2D2. Although I haven't watched the latest Star Wars movie, I absolutely love the franchise. Saw all 6 episodes and R2D2 and C3PO are two of my favorite characters. They're just so endearing. But between them, I love R2 more.

I personally use dictionary . com 

It tells you the synonyms as well, which ensures that you are able to start learning other words which mean the same as well.

They have a application as well, which ensures that you are able to learn new words on your mobile phone as well.

 

Moreover, they update you with a new word each day so you can learn that way as well.

      You won't be disappointed .
      Entirely new English grammars are rare, so Andrew Rossiter's Descriptive Grammar of English (207 pages) comes as a breath of fresh air among the classic grammar books many of which have been around for over thirty years.
      Available as an e-book or paperback from Amazon, this new grammar reference grammar excels by the concision and the clarity of its rules, and the great wealth of really appropriate and memorable examples that it uses to illustrate the fundamental rules of English grammar.  A reviewer at the English Australia journal used the expression "elegant simplicity" with regard to the way this book explains grammar through examples. And since, in the end, most people learn or expand their working knowledge of a language and its grammar by assimilating and copying examples, this reference grammar is both a decriptive and a pedagogical grammar rolled into one.
        If you haven't discovered it already, it's worth checking out.  There is a "look inside" feature for this book on Amazon, so you can actually flip through a number of sample pages.  http://getbook.at/descriptive-grammar

      Hi everyone,
      We'd like to introduce a website to help learners improve their English at https://lingonut.com.
      Lingonut helps you learn by reading and listening to fun and educational news. Each article comes with vocabulary notes and a quiz. In the future, learners can also save these notes to track their learning.
      We're working hard to make the website a useful learning platform. Please let us know if you have any suggestions!
      Hope this helps! Good luck and have fun learning!

      Hey Linguaholics, 
      Few years back I moved to Barcelona with zero Spanish, after months of Duolingo + tutors, I made small progress, but grammar was always a bit of pain. 
      When covid hit, me and my biddy decided to improve our Spanish grammar and built tool for ourselves. It's a mix of theory and flash cards on steroids for grammar, with zero setup and optemised learning plan. 
      We will be launching it next week, but would love to know your feedback on if that might be a problem for you and if what we do resonates with it. Feel free ro drop any suggestions and feedback.

      Thank you

      Could you help me, how can I improve my speaking task:
       
      From my point of view, the Polish education system has many failings, but the main failing is an attitude of many teachers in Polish schools. Firstly, the relation between student and teacher is too weak. It means that the teacher should discuss more with students. Moreover, the teacher ought to teach more individually. For example, if some students have many problems with speaking, the teacher should help him by giving advice, how to improve his speaking. I mean that the teacher should not only point out mistakes but also the teacher ought to help how to resolve the problem. In this case, the problem of students’ speaking. In other words, the teacher should be an instructor, who gives the student a helping hand.
      A few years ago I heard in some English Podcast that ‘teaching is not just testing”. I totally agree with this statement. The most important value of teaching should be helping how to improve students’ abilities. That is why, I think, that the teachers and lecturers should reduce the number of tests during the school or the academic year.
      Let’s move on to another disadvantage of the Polish education system. Personally speaking, I think that a core curriculum is inappropriate. In Polish middle schools, secondary schools and universities there are many unnecessary subjects, which are time-consuming, for instance: chemistry, Information Technology or biology.  If some students are not keen on this subjects, and they are sure that these subjects are not their cup of tea, they should learn at the same time their preferred subjects such us English or Mathematics  to polish up their abilities. If a student is not a biology fan, he should not waste their time in a subject which is not prospective for him or her.
      The best solution to solve this problem is a new curriculum. The student is aware which subjects can be useful for him in the future, and which subjects are completely unnecessary for him or her.
      To sum up, if we want to improve the Polish education system, Polish teachers should be more patient and should work with students more individually instead of working in groups. I do not want to criticize working in groups, but in my opinion, working in groups is less effective than individual work. What is more, teachers should reduce the number of tests because the tests take too much time. As I meant, the core curriculum should be also changed because there are too many unnecessary subjects.

      Hey! I am beginner, I started to learn german a month ago. Recently I signed up on this website because I wanted to find a place where I could check the correctness of my german sentences I don't have any native speaker in my surroundings so I thought that German forum would be a good place for supporting that. I am learning vocabulary by using words in the sentences, but I know that I will have struggle with the correctness of those sentences.
      Thank you for any help
      If you have an idea where can I find a better place or better way for that, you can give me an advice : ) 
      Sentences:
      Micheal hat sehr gut Stimme, Er war überrascht wann habe als ich ihm das gesagt. Brot und Fleisch kaufe Ich Im Supermarkt gleich. Sie sieht nicht wie eine erfahrene Polizistin aus. (She doesn't look like an experienced policewoman) Ich liebe reiden mit meine freunde. Neugierig Mann - Das ist der Person welche ist wichtig in den kreativ Arbeit. Diese Gegend ist sehr leer! Dort mussen sein keine Mensch. Die Hektik ist nicht gut für dein Leben! Du hast leer in dein Kopf. Sie ist bleich, weil ihre Katze ist tot! Die Person mit null Durchsetzungsvermögen immer nickt, weil sie über alles einig.
