What is Let's Learn English?

Let's Learn English is the world's largest online self-access centre, and is growing all the time.

Let's Learn English is an online self-access centre for students of English as a Foreign or Second Language. It provides information and tests on all areas of English, including examinations students often take.

How is Let's Learn English different from other products on the market?

Let's Learn English has been designed for schools to use as an integral part of their English Language study programme, the self-access content of the site blending with what the students will learn in class

Flexibility is built in to the Let’s Learn English design. Students can be given a course to study on the website, either chosen by the school from one of the courses designed by the Let’s Learn English staff, or created by the school from the list of thousands of exercises available.

Alternatively, they can make use of the free study option, where they can study from any of the 1000 units in the site.

Therefore, Let’s Learn English has been designed for schools to use as an integral part of their English Language study programme, the self-access content of the site blending with what the students will learn in class, to provide that all important linkage between classwork and self-access.

Schools purchase access codes for each student in their school, enabling the students to work in the study centre of the school, but also at home. Schools can also customise a cloned version of Let’s Learn English and install it on their own website, with the graphics and content altered to reflect the rest of the website. Schools effectively get their own version of the world’s largest online ELT self-access centre. This will cost a lot less than you think!

Who writes the content for Let's Learn English?

In recent years there has been an explosion of web-based ELT writing. Much of this is free and a lot of it is of high quality. Yet, there has been a large increase in free ELT sites written by well-intentioned yet inexperienced teachers which has led to a lessening of the general quality of content available on the web. Let’s Learn English has been created with the aim of redressing this balance by providing a one-stop site for English Language students and teachers who wish to access ELT content of the highest quality available. The website was set up by ex British Council teachers, with a strict set of criteria for the writing of content for the site. Writers must:

  • be qualified to a minimum of RSA DELTA level in English teaching
  • be practising teachers with a minimum of 10 years’ experience
  • have substantial experience in the areas about which they write – eg. writers of units on IELTS units must have had substantial teaching experience preparing students for the IELTS exam.

What's the Let's Learn English philosophy?

Let’s Learn English aims to provide the following elements to students of English:

  • Authentic content
  • Plain, easy-to-understand explanations of grammar and lexis
  • Graded vocabulary for explanations of grammar and lexis
  • Thorough coverage of different structural and lexical areas
  • Prompt responses to student questions within the Grammar Doctor facility
  • Prompt marking of student compositions and spoken recordings
  • A constantly increasing range of units, and exercise types

About Let's Learn English courses

Students can be given a course to work through by their teacher. These courses require a student to do each element of the course in a particular order, and students must attain a minimum level in each test to be able to proceed. There are at present 30 different courses, each concentrating on a different level of English and a different area of the language. Teachers can create customised courses for their students in as little as five minutes, by choosing elements from the 1000 units of English we have.

There are six levels which correspond to the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) framework for language learning competence and over 1100 units of content with new units are added on a weekly basis.
