ororo.tv or watch TV shows in English for free

Hi, everyone!

I told you about this website in class, but I still needed to write about it here on the blog. This post deals with ororo.tv, a website which we can use, as the people who run it actually say, ‘to learn English by watching tv-shows and movies’.




You can find here almost everything — the best tv shows are just one click away, so that’s just great. The shows can be displayed by popularity, by genre, by name, or by year of production, for example. If you want to get the latest episodes, you should display the results by date (newest).

Or more simply, just type the title — or part of it — in the search box.

So just check it out and, most importantly, enjoy while you learn.

What I have brought here today is this TV series from the BBC, HORRIBLE HISTORIES, which you can watch on ororo.tv on the following link or just by clicking on the picture below.
