Great Links for Students

There has never been a better time to learn English because of the Internet. You can now find hundreds of resources on the World Wide Web that can help you improve your English faster. In addition to studying English through the Lone Star College Intensive English Program, you can get on the Internet and practice your English by reading online newspapers and magazines, taking part in chats and dialogs, and sending e-mail to your classmates and friends. The following websites are useful resources to practice and improve your English. If you find other resources that are not listed here, please e-mail them to me (Daniel Tatarzyn at Daniel.K.Tatarzyn@lonestar.edu), and I'll post them on this website.
