Why animals?  How do animals improve my English? Those are good questions, since no animal is likely to teach you higher level English. The unit on animals is a bit more narrow academically than Trains and Railroads, our first unit. It’s a Science unit, yet it’s general enough to engage those who are doing academic work and those who are not. Besides, who hasn’t had experience with some kind of animal? It’s that prior experience that will open the door to Comprehensible Input – a major player in helping you raise your level of English proficiency.

I hope you’ll enjoy this fun and interesting way to use the power of television and the internet to improve your English – in other words – to RAMP IT UP!
