Try Mega Mega English.com – an interactive new approach to listening practice!

There are lots of websites that have interactive quizzes for testing your English, but Mega Mega English is the first I have seen where you get to join in a conversation with an online character via listening. It’s ideal for practicing your listening and reading skills!

Webmaster Matthew Baxter told us:

“Mega Mega English is a great way to learn real English conversations skills.  Players interact with a variety of characters in places such as hotels, restaurants and shops. They must answer and ask questions.  The virtual characters then give unique responses.  Some choices are correct, some are wrong, and some will make you laugh!”
