English Articles

A series of articles on the English language, travel, culture, science and technology, business English and sport.

Welcome to the English Magazine.

The English Magazine, does what it says on the cover. It is a free English magazine, and we try to keep it full of regularly updated content.  From articles on travel, sport, language and culture to jokes, cartoons, tests and games.

You can also listen to any of the articles using our ReadSpeaker feature, and we often record the News Round Up articles and other poetry etc. 

There's no need to sign in, or "join" the magazine, all the content is there for you to see, in addition we use the Disqus commenting system, so feel free to ask a question about any article, or just leave a comment.

  • Use in the classroom - Please feel free to print off any of the material for classroom use.  There is a print option on each page and all content can be downloaded as a pdf document.
  • For people with sight problems - you can resize the text using your browser.  
  • Please do not republish any of the material in any form.
  • If you're desperately looking for an article, recipe or something you "know" was here last year, it's probably in the Archives.  If you still can't find it, leave a comment here.

The English magazine was developed as a free educational resource for ESL / EFL learner's and teachers by the Learn English Network, but anyone who loves English can enjoy it.

Although everything we do is free, it costs us quite a bit to keep going, so if you find any part of the Network useful, please consider sponsoring us.
