Hello English learners, language enthusiasts, and language-lovers! I know how painful and difficult can be the journey to learning another language, but just as rewarding, can be.
As a person whose native language is not English, I feel you! It takes a lot of time, dedication and effort to master a new language, we have nothing else to offer but exams papers, endless essay writing, vocabulary, and grammar drills to offer! But we shall prevail and we shall conquer the new language! Thankfully, today we have a lot of tools available online, in the classroom, outside the classroom and virtually everywhere around us, we just need to know where to look!
In this post, I would like to share with you five wonderful Youtube channels where you can learn more about English language and even practice your knowledge!
