The more words you encounter and understand, the broader your day-to-day vocabulary will become. Our word games and puzzles are an excellent way to help to reinforce spellings in your mind.
Especially helpful are exercises that are focussed on a theme or topic as these provide word retention practice so you can be confident to read, write, speak and listen successfully.

At this beginner level, these exercises provide confidence to speak at this basic level of English.

There are materials specifically concerned with a particular grammar structure at this beginner level of English, useful for when it is being introduced for the first time. The main structure at this level is the Present Simple and you will find resources for this as well as others such as frequency adverbs.

There are resources at a beginner level that will give students practice in listening and writing. At this low level, the writing materials are generally short phrases or sentences.
