Cambridge has released a number of apps based on classic English Teaching books called "in-use", which I often use in class.

Have a look there:

 

In-use Apps from Cambridge University Press

 

You can download them onto your phone or tablets

 

Have a go!

Hi

If you 're here, I probably told you you needed to improve your vocabulary and general level of expression.

 

Here are a few things I would recommend to move into the B2 or C1 level of the CEFR. The aim is to gain authenticity, by using the exact terms that native speakers would use for a given situation. It's not just about not making mistakes.

 

The press:

• UK: (remember what I keep telling you about the specific angle and reputation of these papers)

- the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/

- the Times: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/

- the Daily Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/

 

 

• US:

New York Times : http://www.nytimes.com/

Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/

 

• On paper:

- Specific to learning English as a foreign speaker: http://www.ofup.com/langues/vocable-anglais/p374.htm

- Or cheap subscriptions for lycéens/students:

http://www.ofup.com/langues/newsweek/om34/206.htm

http://www.ofup.com/langues/the-economist/om34/278.htm

http://www.ofup.com/langues/time/om34/280.htm

- General interest:

NME : probably the most famous music magazine

Vanity Fair: an american women's magazine

 

For a list of specialist magazines you can get have a look at this link

 

• For your oral skills (Speaking and comprehension)

CNN student News, then look around the site for the scripts of each daily news bulletin

 

Good luck

 

Y Desdevises

Hello good people,

Here is a link to check how to pronounce the words you have found. You can choose the voice and the accent you want, it's pretty good to find the correct pronunciation and the strong syllable of a word.

Bye
