Are you looking for some free English lessons? I have found that people love learning through watching videos. So here you will find free English lessons with listening exercises that use video clips and radio as a basis for hearing and learning vocabulary. I use video clips that cover a large range of topics, like photography, commercialism, intelligence, health...and so much more.
Listening to English being spoken by native speakers is a key part of learning the language. Traditional methods of learning involved a lot of grammar, written work and gap-fill exercises, which led to many being able to read English, but not understand it when it is being spoken.

These free lessons are appropriate for upper intermediate, advanced and proficiency level English. Some of the documentaries are quite long, but don’t be put off by this, as they are all very interesting and enjoyable.
Make sure that you go through the new vocabulary first, and then when you watch the video clip, or listen to the extract, make sure to listen out for the new words. You will find out how to use them in context, how they are pronounced, and the more you hear them, the easier they will be to remember.
