Testimonials

WebEnglish.se sometimes receives an appreciative note by mail, on Facebook or as an answer to a poll, sometimes in English, other times in Swedish, or both. These are the elixir that keeps us going.
My Girl Scouts and I wanted to express our gratitude by writing a little thank you note. Your page, https://webenglish.se/us-50-states has been extremely useful and informative in helping my scouts learn about geography in a fun and exciting manner.

I Think it is excellent that you have created this material. The clouds move swift -the rain´s falling in. – Gonna see a movie called The thunder din, Oooe ride me high – you aint going nowhere Ungefär en sådan dag – lite gråare dock – är det väldigt roligt att se detta material
Dylan Tedgård
I use your material in combination with our text- and workbook. I also use it for my students who have English as their mother tongue. We always find good material.​
This school year I really wanted to get my daughter, Mary, into reading. I'm letting her pick out a few books that she's interested in and adding them to the reading list! We did some research together and came across your helpful page (https://webenglish.se/intermediate). You have some really great suggestions - thanks!
Susan (and Mary)
[...]when Ava's teacher gave the class an assignment to write a research paper on the author of their choice, she chose Shakespeare without hesitation. We started researching over the weekend and found your page - it has been so helpful to her I wanted to reach out and personally thank you. I haven't seen her this invested in her school work in a long time - she has spent the entirety of her day off so far working on it(without complaints!)
