AES provides  on-line, one-on-one English classes for academic purposes, with each class tailored to your specific needs. For more information, check out our English Classes

In addition to our classes, this page provides links to various free sources for learning English in addition to the courses offered by us, with an emphasis on sites that provide opportunities to develop advanced or academic English. There are countless resources for learning English on the Internet both free and for a fee, so we limited our recommendations to what we consider high quality free sources available online. While these pages provide various opportunities for improving your skills, the most powerful and effective means of developing your English is through meaningful communication in real-life situations, such as giving an opinion, explaining a goal, negotiating an agreement, clarifying a point, assessing, making requests, asking for directions, and a host of other "speech acts" involved in interacting with people in authentic communication. In addition to this, you'll notice that few people provide the type of feedback and guidance in pronunciation, writing and vocabulary development that a good teacher can provide. I recommend this free material as a supplement to working with an experienced trained teacher and a supplement to real-life communication:

Online News

Most online news services have a combination of text and videos. Democracy Now is a progressive news service based in the US, which primarily provides videos of various world news stories, including the text which can be used to follow along while listening to the audio and watching the video. National Public Radio, another US based program, provides audio recordings as well as accompanying texts. It is very helpful practice to follow the audio while simultaneously following in the text. National Public Radio has an incredibly diverse set or shows and programs available for free. News programs like Al Jazeera or Der Spiegel, while based in non-English speaking countries, provide exceptionally high quality journalism in English.
