We've been asked a couple of times to recommend some additional resources for learning English (especially grammar, which can be notoriously tricky and irregular). I'm one of the English linguists who developed the Estonian > English course. Here's a short list of websites (that I've personally used at one time or another) to make your use of English the best it can be.

Have you used any of these resources? Or do you have any interesting links to add to the list? Tell us in the comments below!
