In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

    This is a free and great site to learn and improve the english language:

    learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en


    In this site has a session "Listen & Watch". It's fantastic!

    Normally I hear "Elementary Podcasts" on the same session, I recommend. ;-)

    The British Council website is excellent for listening. Have you also found the BBC podcasts @Glaucoft? They're really good too. I really like the 6 minute podcasts: http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/sixminute/. Check out http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/multimedia/london/ too.

    It's a good podcast to learn English, i used to listen to "English as a second language too" but i found it a little too easy in the long term.
    By the way "6 minutes english" are chunks of stories taken by the "Global News Podcast", i usually listen to it while going to work, cause it's much longer.
    A very nice podcast i like to listen to is "Ted Radio Hour" from NPR, not always so easy (not for beginners), but useful to get some practice and hence topics are really interesting.

    I was bemused by this grammar test. It sussed my age too! Have you seen this @Lynne?

    Nice one @mheredge. I got:-

    Based on the way you punctuate and construct sentences, we're pretty sure you're in your 20s or 30s. You know how to use proper grammar, but you're at the point in your life where it's not that important to you. Yolo, right?

    It's very accurate.

    Based on the way you punctuate and construct sentences, we're pretty sure you're in high school or college. You actually know a lot more about grammar rules than people older than you because you're studying them in school, and you aren't stuck on old-fashioned rules that aren't pertinent anymore

    OMG!
