Hi LilacFireHarp

Welcome to LearnEnglish Kids!

There are lots of different activities for practising your English on our site. For example, if you want to listen to stories in English, go to 'Listen and watch' and then choose 'Short stories'. Then choose a story that interests you. There are games with all the stories to help you understand.

If there is a particular subject that you're interested in, (for example animals) you can click on it in the A-Z of Topics list and you will see all of the different activities that we have for that topic.

And you can write a comment in the comment box after you've done the activity.

Have fun!


Best wishes,


LeaernEnglish Kids team
