Does anyone know of any other good forums for non-native speakers of English where there are a lot of topics for discussion?

You don't like us?
On the contrary,i like this forum very much and think it`s one of the best forums that i`ve found so far,but i would like to know which ESL message boards are the most popular. Emotion: wink
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
i don't have time to surf around but this room is quite good so far, but i think there are other interesting forums as well if you have time to google or yahoo, and don't forget to whisper me alright?

Actually this forum is good enough but it 's less debated characteristic that 's why the forum is a liltle cool and cold and sometimes make your idea is cold as well Emotion: smile

Anyway i still like this forum Mr. Pedantic Emotion: smile
Samsetzathe forum is a liltle cool and cold and sometimes make your idea is cold as well
Samsetza, do you really think so? I have to say that I disagree with you. We are here to learn English, aren't we? Well, I have to say that I have learnt a lot just by reading posts. A cold place? Emotion: indifferent

Hello Sam,

What makes the forum cold, in your opinion? Let me know, and I'll pass it on to the designer. (Would you like more debates, etc.?)

Thanks Mr. Pedantic, if you could pass my message to Administrator. i said it's cold means we have less debated topics. In order to improve English skills especially what we can get out of this forum is Writting, Reading ( ofcourse not speaking and listening). Well If someone come in just to improve reading skill it's better surf in News website. Or to make you fresh from working load they can surf in their mother tongue website. But if we have something to debate it 's different story. To write something for your own argument, you don't have to brainstorm to get the idea but it's will come by itself. But what i see in this forum is just a comments than debated topics ex: what is your hobbies? what are you doing at this moment? (sorry to whom post those topics, i dont mean to criticise) so you can write about your hobbies but you don't have to read these previous posts and because there are no links among posts so after posting your comments you also don't want to follow up but try to find something new to write about again. But if you post a debated topics, members are naturally forced to read these posts before they could debate something and you will follow up to know what people think about your arguments. I reckon you know what i mean.

For me, i practise reading on News website and come to these forums to improve writting. How about you guys?

I know what you mean: if the subject intensely interests you, you have to stretch your English, to keep up with the debate.

(Similarly, the best incentive for learning Zøg is the arrival of an attractive Zøg-ish female in your workplace.)

Thanks for your thoughts – I'll pass them on.

All the best,

Hi,
As far as I know, this is the best forum for ESL learners. There are many others, but they just suck, for one reason or another.
A very big forum is wordreference, but... in my opinion, too many people (lots of people posting, it easily gets confusing), practically no room for discussions (only a section that is not for grammar questions)... and the members are less friendly than here (that's the impression I got). Also, EnglishForward has one of the best graphical interface I've ever seen.

There is also a chat room linked to this forum... and another forum too. What I've never understood is why there should be two separate websites (EF and TCP). I was told TCP is a place for learners to practice... well, can't we practice here, without having two separate accounts? There could be a public chat room for everyone (like the one there is now in TCP. ?Maybe IRC based?), and there could be a private chat room too for registered members (?maybe even an embedded instant messaging service for members?) That would be cool.
Another thing that would be very cool... is a wiki ESL grammar. Descriptive grammar, LOL. I don't think there is a grammar wiki on the net yet, it would be the first. I thought of this after realizing how much information is wasted here in this forum when you can't find a thread, when people ask a question that has been asked tenths of times, when they ask extremelly basic stuff that could be learned from a simple and clear reference. With a wiki, all the information could be arranged neatly... and the questions and answer in the threads could be the input to expand it. It would be like studying all together from the same book, discussing together, improve the book together. What do you think? Emotion: smile
