A Few Useful Links

I want to tell you about a few links that are already on the side. Sometimes it is useful to know just what they do and how they can be helpful.

Repeat After Me is a great website to help you work on the rythm (music) of the English sentence. When you practice repeating nursery rhymes, you have fun and learn how to sound more relaxed and fluent.

The Real Canadian Songbook  is a wonderful website developed by one of VCC's teachers. There are at least 60 Canadian songs you can listen to while you do a fill in the blanks exercise. I highly recommend trying  Four Strong Winds by Gordon Lighfoot, Home, by Michael Buble and any of the songs by Anne Murray. They are all very clear and easy to sing-along with. Of course, there are also a few Celine Dion songs.  This is a good place to practice English and have fun at the same time.
