I like this idea.
I recommend the BBC website.
There’s lots of different stuff on there, including games to brush up on your grammar. Try writing a little everyday. Get a notebook and challenge yourself to write one page a day. This is a good site for visual writing prompts.
You should also try and read as much as you can. This includes reading books that are a bit more challenging than you would normally read. Here’s a good list to have a look at. Choose something that seems interesting from here. Keep a note of any new vocabulary words you come across. (Try to use these words in your daily writing.)
Don’t forget to read non-fiction texts too. Try reading longer news articles and opinion pieces. The Guardian website is a good place to start.
There are some good tumblrs to follow too. For instance the YUNiversity.
You seem to have a great attitude. Good luck!
Any other tumblr teachers out there got recommendations?
