    Hey there,

    do you know any good website where to practice and improve English?

    I don't know of any website that can improve one's English skills, but what I do suggest is for you to just READ books.

    Read books in English or news articles. Read ANYTHING that has perfect English. You can also watch TV shows in English or movies... The more you are around the language, the better more you get to learn and adapt to it. :)

    Thanks man for your response.
    What you just wrote above I am doing, but my problem is grammar, where I have some issues which I would like to remove... And I just thought that tests and so on would be probably the best for it...

    However, I am open to all suggestions & tips :)

    Like nix said, try to read English books and Newspaper's daily. They will have a dramatic effect on how you present yourself in English.

    Good Luck :)

    well, is't not exactly a website but it has much better features than any free "improve your english website". try rosetta stone.it's the best language learning software available...as far as i know.you can find it on your favourite torrent site.
    reading english books also helped me a lot eventhough it can be quite an exhaustive reading experience especially when you start the first ones.

    I started with reading books, with dictionary support.
    Then I downloaded The Soprano and watched all 6 seasons in 6 months, with no subtitle.
    It was hard during 5-10 episodes, but since I loved this serie, I continued.

    After that, I have 0 problem to understand ANYTHING in English and I can speak it. My only problem is my accent since I do not speak it on a daily basis.
    Hope it helps.

    Check out this website called grammarly.com I think it will help you out a lot. Also great for those of you that want to save time from proof reading articles. I would not base my grammar checking on this alone for your money site, that content should always be carefully written and optimized.
