I've just embarked on an experiment to find out if students are willing and able to develop their English working autonomously online.

I'm trying to provide a range of web based activities (a new one each day) that students can do by themselves to try to improve their English.

The activities will be mostly short simple things that learners can do everyday and build into part of a regime. I think that too often learning is crammed into long sessions once or twice each week, which don't really have as much impact as shorter more regular 'bites' of learning .

I'm publishing the activties on a blog at: http://daily-english-activities.blogspot.com/ so teachers and students can subscribe by RSS feed. They will also be able to leave comments and include links to their work which they will be able to share.

I'll also be running regular polls on the site to see what reactions the site is getting and how well the materials are working.

If you would like to get your students involved then send them over to: http://daily-english-activities.blogspot.com/

As a teacher you can also easily print up and share the activities if you want to hand them out as homework or as worksheets for students to use in class or a multimedia lab.All the activities are of course free.

Please feel free to leave me a comment or any feedback you have on the activities. I'm sure there's room for improvement.
