Best online tools for learning English

I really like learning English but I'm too busy to go to an English class. The only choice I have is to learn online with my partners. Today I want to share the tools I use for my learning. After that, I wish to hear from you too.

1. Italki.com: I go on here to look for language partners. I can find someone who is learning my language and willing to teach me his/her language for free.
2. Google Hangouts: I used to Skype but now Google Hangouts is definitely more useful. Can video chat with up to 10 people.

3. VoxyPad app: This is an app that works very well for online learning. The app acts as a blackboard for me and my partner. We have the shared space for taking notes, interacting on web contents and Dropbox files. And it's the best because I can learn on the go and the connection is very good for a free app.

4. Eslpod: I used to cook and wash dishes while listening to this and copying his words at the same time. The host speaks very slowly so it's easy to hear, understand and copy. Various topics to choose from.

The THEOI Library has many classical Plays, texts, etc which can be read on-line, mosttraslated by First Tier Scholars

http://www.library.theoi.com/

"Prometheus Bound" by Greek Playwright AESCHYLUS was

written about 2,500 years ago. It is a wonderful read in English, and also,

brief. It contains many essential concepts which will help one understand English.

It is free at the following site: http://www.theoi.com/Text/AeschylusPrometheus.html

And Finally, BibleGateway.com

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis&version=KJV

Here, if you look for the symbol for the speaker, colored Red, you can listen to the Bible as it is read in English.

The Kindergarten through 12th Grade Reader can be a great resource for learning.
