This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

The most interesting websites for learners of English as a Foreign Language (EFL)

BBC Learning English
  • News in levels will help you read news in English at your own level. Once you've understood it you might try a higher level, or the other way round, try the most difficult level and then an easier one.
  • Activities for Esl/EFL students offers a wide range of activities, particularly quizzes, which are always fun.
  • Isabel Pérez is probably one of the most interesting Spanish websites. You'll find all sorts of grammar and vocabulary exercises but also interesting texts on a variety of topics. It is also a good website for ESL teachers.
  • Lyrics Training will let you listen to your favourite songs and learn English at the same time. Our former assistant, Sam, recommended it.
  • Five minute English has short articles on different topics that will be useful for language learners, such as the difference between hear and listen to.
  • ESL America has lots of activities with audio files so that you can focus on difficult aspects of pronunciation.
  • Audio-Lingua has a large selection of mp3 files for learners of many European languages. You'll find files from A1 to C2 levels. Many of them are in English.
  • BBC Learning English website has lots of different sections where you can find texts, audio files and activities designed for foreign students of English.
  • Duolingo is a great website if you want to learn English (French, German or Portuguese) on your own. It uses translation and dictation as its main activities. It can be useful particularly if you want to reinforce what you have learnt in class. You can register using your Facebook or Google account.
  • Newspapers in English. Here you'll find lots of online newspapers to read in English:
