About English Language Help

English Language Help provides information and answers about the English Language. Currently, the focus is on ESL (English as a Second Language), also known as ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages). We now offer online English lessons.

As time allows, I will expand the site to include English Language articles and lessons for native English speakers who wish to improve their grammar, vocabulary, and general usage of the English Language.

As I live in New Zealand, there is a focus on English slang and idioms. During 2011, I released my draft of a glossary / dictionary of New Zealand slang and colloquialisms.

Also, as I study Spanish, and many of my students are native Spanish-speakers (Spanish as a first language), there is often a focus on offering lessons for Spanish speakers. Many speakers of languages other than English have similar problems and difficulties with pronunciation and concepts, so all English lessons will help you improve your English skills.

    It’d be great if you continued to the end of the alphabet instead of stopping at S.

But anyway, I read pages and pages, and smiled and smiled
