Learning English on the internet

How to learn English on the internet
Internet gives us a lot of opportunities to practise your English. Apart from the on line newspapers and dictionaries, you can find many web pages on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and so on. Even in the web page of our school you can find quite a lot of interesting links to learn and practise your English.Here you have some examples:

Listening
http://www.elllo.org/ : very intersting, with a lot of material to practise
http://www.vaughantelevision.com/ : with different levels. There is also a radio station but I think it's much more interesting on tv.

Songs
As you probably know, the best way to find the lyrics of a song is using Google and introducing the first line between quotation marks; e.g. “Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away”. The other possibility is to join the title with the author with the symbol + in between, e.g. Yesterday+The Beatles. Nevertheless, here you have some sites to go through:
