An EnglishClub Site of the Month (December 2009)
EnglishCentral is a new website with a growing library of interesting videos. The subtitled videos are categorized by difficulty level under a variety of interest topics including Sports, Daily Life, Environment, and Travel. The unique aspect of EnglishCentral is that you can plug in a microphone and record the lines you hear and read. A voice recognition program grades your recording and provides you with points based on your pronunciation and speaking skills. You can also click on individual words for definitions, or slow the audio down as you listen again. EnglishCentral also has a scoreboard. This allows you to track your progress and compete for the highest points.
