English Activities is a free website for English learners. It is packed with simple English lessons, exiting English games and challenging English tests to help you learn English for fun (and free). English Activities has been specially designed to help those who want to practice their English away from the EFL ESL classroom in an enjoyable and engaging way. All the lessons, games and tests are free to use with over 100 beginner and lower intermediate topics. Use the options in the box below to learn or revise any topic with any activity.
Start your visit to English Activities with the English Lesson for your chosen topic. Each of our 100+ lessons consists of an introduction to the topic language and 3 lesson activities - a yes/no activity, an either/or activity and a multiple choice activity. During the introduction to the topic, it is important that you repeat the audio after you hear it, and write down the texts to help your memory absorb both the sound and look of that language.
The 3 lesson activities are graded from easy to more difficult. As you work your way through them, you will find that your grasp and retention of the target language gradually improves. By the time you have completed the whole lesson, you should be able to recall and repeat the vocabulary for each of the topic items without prompting.
There are 13 free games you can use to practice the English topic you are learning at English Activities. The games are quick and simple to play and improve language retention by excercising different areas of the brain. Try a variety of games for the best results! The games are free to use and work on both tablets (including iPads) and desktop computers.
Complete your topic learning session by taking our 2 tests - a multiple choice test and a writing test. These will confirm that you have fully grasped and are able to reproduce the English you have learned by doing the lesson and playing the games.
The writing test is harder than the multiple choice but is important if you wish to be able to write English as well as speaking it! As you can see from the screenshot, there is a Help button if you get stuck...
To start using English Activities click here or on the "Start" button at the top of the page.
On the Start page you choose the first topic you want to learn. Once you have chosen a topic you will go straight to the lessons - there is an introduction to the language, a yes/no activity, an either/or activity and a multiple choice activity. Once you have worked through these lesson activities, play a few games to reinforce the English for your selected topic. Then finally try our two tests - multiple choice and writing - to make sure you have learned the language correctly.
