Here you can find activities to practise your speaking skills. You can watch and listen to videos that show how English is used in different types of conversations. As you listen and speak aloud, you’ll also improve your pronunciation.

The self-study lessons in this section are written and organised according to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR). The videos and interactive exercises help you to practise your speaking skills.
