This is a site for students (and their teachers) who wish to develop their understanding of English while exploring academic subjects. The aim is not to dictate procedures or provide lesson plans but simply to curate audio and video content and to ask questions. Answers to questions are not provided, because real academic contexts rarely provided clear and simple answers to the questions students are set. Instead, the questions are an opportunity to discuss the subject and explore further. We may not find the answers we seek, but we will gain a better understanding on the way.
Choose a subject area, select a topic, digest the content, and – if you’re feeling brave – add your own response with a comment. We’re big fans of Soundcloud, so if you don’t feel like writing, why not record your response, upload to Soundcloud, and send us a link.
