Online English Club
Welcome speech: Akmal Akbarov
When the quarantine measures were introduced in my country, I started teaching all of my students online. Keeping them engaged was the most challenging aspect of online teaching. So what I did to ensure my students were busy trying to improve their English was to handpick some of the most interesting, trending and educational YouTube videos and create mini-tasks. The effect was fantastic! Not only did they improve their English, but they also discovered the world around them and enlarged their worldview. I kept these videos and quizzes locked for a year, but only now decided to make them all public so that you can use them either to learn or teach English. Enjoy!

Important! Some quizzes might contain minor mistakes. Please excuse me for that. I will improve everything step by step.

About quizzes: All the quizzes contain multiple-choice questions. Once you have watched a particular video and completed the quiz, please press the Submit button. Then press the View score button in order to see your overall score and mistakes. You can do the quizzes several times.

About videos: Most of the videos last from 15 to 20 minutes and are mostly suitable for Intermediate level students. Feel free to watch the videos several times before completing the quiz.
