If you’ve searched online for English resources before, you might have already heard of Rosetta Stone.
Rosetta Stone is probably the most famous method for learning languages.
It’s also very a unique method compared to many others.
Usually, an English app teaches you English with explanations in your native language. For example, if you’re French, you’ll see French explanations of English grammar, or French translations of English words.
But Rosetta Stone doesn’t do that – it teaches you English with English.
Rosetta Stone has exercises designed to help you learn basic words, before forming phrases and longer sentences.
Using this method, Rosetta Stone manages to teach you many new English words and phrases without using your native language. It’s a very immersive method.
I would recommend this if you would like to try learning English without relying on your native language.

This week, after a long struggle against cancer, the eternal Pop music icon David Bowie, has finally passed away. He was a bizarre singer, always innovating and ready to break the established rules (not only musical rules but also the fashion ones, he always had an unusual physical appearance) but, above all, an enormous musician to his full extent.
As a humble homage to his impressive career, I give you two subtitled videos of two of his first musical hits, ‘Space Oddity’ (from the self-titled 1969 album) and also from his self-titled LP from 1970, ‘The man who sold the world’.
I hope you enjoy them.
There aren’t many musical groups better than The Beatles to learn English by listening to their songs. Clear voices, great pronunciation with British accent of both Paul McCartney and John Lennon, and, of course, fantastic melodies and songs. Here you have a couple of examples, two of their greatest hits with inserted lyrics.
