A great collection of internet webby stuff as recommended by visitors to the Learn English Network.
Could be a web site, a Twitter feed, a Facebook page, a Google plus page, forum, video, basically anything on the net.
Do you like playing with dolls? Do you like designing clothes? Do you like decorating? If the answer is "yes", then you'll like the Stardoll website. On this site you can go shopping, decorate your apartment, and generally be creative. You create your own MeDoll avatar, dress him / her up, and if you want to, socialize with other members. All the basic features are free, you only pay if you want to take it to the next level. Great for practising clothing vocabulary.
Floating Sheep - Blog of the month
I'm featuring this blog because they're mapping the use of the words "soccer" and "football", including a post entitled "Football (or is it soccer?) in nine and a half languages ". It's what blogging was made for.
Alex Horne is the author of this month's book of the month. He's also a fully fledged funny man, and star of several TV and radio shows. His website verbal gardening is part of his attempt to get some of the words he's invented into the dictionary. And if you're feeling creative, you can even try to get your own words added.
If you like playing games online, but like me you're a bit short of time, Mousebreaker is full of games to play, and best of all, they're quick. You can even play online with your friends, but that might waste even more time. Still - we all need a break from time to time.
What Could Happen? - Blog of the month
This is Julie Powell's blog. As I featured the film, it seemed sensible to find her blog, but be warned, she's not afraid of the odd expletive or two, and some of the comments leave a lot to be desired. Maybe writing blogs that no one reads, is not such a bad idea. That said, there are some very funny posts, and it's worth a look in.
