Vocatube - Vocabulary about clothes on YouTube

VocaTube

After the success from our first post in the VocaTube series, we present today the second post of the series that allows you to learn vocabulary in English with the best educational videos from YouTube.

Videos from this post are focused on the clothes and accessories topic, sorted from elementary to intermediate level. This list of videos includes a song, a video with the different kinds of shoes and a very funny video recorded in a shopping centre.

Remember that vocabulary can only be improved with practice, and listening through repetition. It’s difficult for everyone to understand from the beginning but you’ll notice that the more hours you listen to English, the better your understanding.

VocaTube - Vocabulary about food on YouTube

VocaTube

We’re starting a new section on the blog to Learn English Online. The idea is simple: to use the thousands of available videos on YouTube to improve our English vocabulary.

The main topic of the videos of this post is food and related content of the kitchen and the adjectives to use when describing food.

Remember that vocabulary can only be improved with practice, and listening through repetition. It’s difficult for everyone to understand from the beginning but you’ll notice that the more hours you listen to English, the better your understanding.
