Oh, it's summer!
Summer is the time to rest and chill out! I guess it will be super hard to plan a challenge that requires being systematic and diligent. Therefore I will give you here a list of less-involving summer-time activities that you can do in your free time. They mostly include online games, puzzles and quizzes. Have fun!
1. Easy speak
You need a mic for this activity. It's quite easy but fun. Good for practising pronunciation as it uses voice recognition mode. There are several categories available. You can try it with friends or even your kids!
2. Phrasal verbs
In this activity you need to choose a proper phrasal for a picture. You have 3 opinions to choose from. The phrasals used here are pretty common and it's good to have them in your active vocabulary.
Here you will get 16 random letters of the alphabet and three minutes. During that time, you have to come up with as many English words as you can using the letters you have, and every time you make a new word, you get points.
The game might not be the easiest but the rules are downright simple: listen to a word and try to spell it correctly. Additionally, you can have a look at visual thesaurus on the right and all the definitions.
5. Crossword puzzles
This webpage is a great treat for any crosswords' lover. It offers a variety of puzzles and levels to choose from.
TubeQuizard is great! It might be more challenging than a simple game as it focuses on intensive listening exercises - it includes short clips from many sources and songs! You can pick and choose as their library is quite impressive. Additionally, you can decide on the level you wish to practise and type of quiz focus - grammar, vocabulary etc.
