Welcome to Go4English

 

Here is a website with some helpful and funny resources to learn English or to brush up on it.

Go to"Recently added" articles      

The rationale behind this website is to provide online tools (such as readings, listenings, videos, photo stories, grammar explanations, exercises and more) for my students in order to encourage them to study English by making the most of technology.

If you want to focus on language (functions, vocabulary, idioms and more) click on section Language (Top Menu) and enter the English Made Easy project. Choose a topic and watch videos or read photo stories created by Italian students. Watch/read the explanation if available, then do some exercises.

If you need practical information about how to study, Strategies is the section you are looking for.

Some contents are only for registered people. To ask for registration codes, please contact me

But before you start, watch the following videos. How important is English in your opinion?

Now have a look at these pictures. Can you correct the mistakes? Which ones make communication difficult?
