Simple English Videos revisited

We posted about SimpleEnglish Videos back in 2012 but Vicki and Jay refurbished it some weeks ago, so we thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone of the site.
Simple English Videos intends to help learners to speak more fluently and with confidence. To do so, Vicki and Jay show how English is used in real life with videos, ‘with jokes along the way’. They shoot the majority of the videos themselves in their home or in locations nearby with the help of friends and acquaintances.

Students will find more than one hundred videos on the site grouped under three levels: Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced. The videos are also grouped according to these categories: British and American English; Business English; Grammar; Hangouts; Short conversations; Social English; Songs and stories; Vocabulary.

In addition, every Sunday they broadcast The English Show live on their YouTube channel, which is full of language practice, game, conversation and raps. 

Every week the show revolves around a different English-learning aspect: How to improve your listening and vocabulary by watching movies; English questions; English to advance your career; National Fairy Tale Day; Improve your listening with podcasts; Celebrate St Valentine’s Day; UK and US pronunciation differences; How to sell and convince in English; and so on.
