"It's easy to waste time worrying about exams - even when they're still months away! But there's a great deal you can do to help yourself prepare thoroughly and perform well... We've created resources for every move you need to make - from choosing the right course in the first place and planning your revision, to improving your exam technique. Each unit contains a handy list of tips from teachers, examiners and students. You can also listen to short programmes and download transcripts. There are glossaries to help you understand the audio. You'll also find a unit of tried-and-tested advice from English language experts who took part in the 2006 International Annual IATEFL conference. And to help you choose the right exam for you, we begin a series of Insider guides to different exams. These are written by the institutions which create the exams. Read up on the Cambridge ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exams and the Trinity College London Examinations. Coming soon ... there'll be a chance to put your questions to an English language revision expert and an English language examiner in a live web chat! And if you e-mail us with your strategies for revising, we'll pass on the best of your advice! You can send all your comments and recommendations to us at: mailto:learningenglish@bbc.co.uk?subject=Exam. "

    I think the English live web chat is fantastic!
    For us that have the distance university it will be a good way to practice at the same time that someone is correcting your faults. I believe in this kind of future.

  2. I like BBC, there is a lot of material to improve our English skills. I usually say that I would need days with 48 hours to be able to do everything that I want to do.

    By chance, the other day I found this web site: http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/ I like this web site too because in the button "learning english" there are news with audio MP3 and I can read and listen to it at the same time.

    Cheers,
