Reading: Zodiac Sign Personality traits

Best ESL links on the web – Free English materials and resources

Welcome to Englishlinking,

In this post we will be sharing a free reading in PDF format ready to download and print.  Remember to visit our diverse categories where you can find many links, resources and free material related to learning English as a second language.

It is frustrating to have limited vocabulary. I can see it when my students want to elaborate ideas and speak but cannot find the right word. This creates a very awkward and stressing environment during the conversation and does not allow any fluency. Speaking English is much more than knowing grammar and students sometimes do not understand that reading helps us in many different areas.

In this post we are going to share a reading based on describing the personality traits of each zodiac sign. We can find very useful vocabulary related to adjectives and vocabulary describing personality. In addition, it is very fun to read about the personality attributes of each zodiac sign because we can relate it to our friends and family members and check if it is true.  For example, I am Aquarius and most of the attributes stand true to my own ones. Can it be a coincidence or do the stars tell more about us? Be the judge.

ESL: Blog to improve your English Writing

Posted: 10 Jan 2015 06:31 AM PST

Learning ESL (English as a Second Language) – Best ONLINE resources for Students

Welcome to EnglishLinking,

In order to improve our English level we have to practice our different abilities. The most important areas are grammar, listening, speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary and writing. In this post we are going to share a blog with many tips and free articles to help you improve your English writing.

As a teacher I can say that one of the most difficult areas to practice is writing. Many students simply get easily bored when doing such activities. However, writing is  one of the most common ways we interact with other people in different settings. For example emails are used every day and most of us use at as the most important tool for communicating at work. Therefore it is important to practice writing and although at times activities in writing might seem a little boring, we have to find ways to making it entertaining.

Student books offer us material related to English writing but students most of the time do not feel any motivation to sit down and write for 10 or 15 minutes.  It is important to always focus on why we practice writing and choose the best materials to help us improve this important ability. There are many aspects of writing which are not covered in normal grammar classes and many students do not realize this.

Tips and Suggestions to help us improve our English Writing

The Everything English Blog is a great place to find tips and suggestions in order to improve our English writing. We encourage you to start practicing more writing and we think that many of these tips will help you in this area
