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.


Horrible Histories

Hi, everyone!

I know it’s been a while since I last posted anything, but I thought I’d have my new website up and running by now, so I will still be publishing here for some more time.

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.


You can also go to Horrible Histories website by clicking HERE.


Hi, everyone!

While looking for Thanksgiving resources I came across this funny video. Enjoy!

video- can stress actually kill you?

Hi, everyone!

Please check this interesting video on stress and its effects on our health. Hope you like it!

Also note that you can activate the subtitles.


B2 Indirect questions

Hi, everyone!
Please watch this video in which indirect questions are explained.



Hi, again!
Here’s yet another video by the same guys who did “The fox”. This time it’s about Stonehenge. Hope you like it (mind the language, anyway).


The Fox

Hi, everyone!
I just came across this music video and thought you might like it as much as I do.

Pepe’s Pot – video

Hi, everyone!

This is a video with a different approach to English, in this case, English and Spanish spoken in Gibraltar. That’s real bilingualism, as I see it. Hope you like it!

Google Nose

Hi, everyone!

I just found this while surfing the net and thought you might like it.

Notice that nose and knows are pronounced the exact same way.

Les Miserables

Hi, everyone!

This post is about the last movie I’ve seen at the cinema: Les Miserables, based on the musical (based on Victor Hugo’s famous novel). I do recommend the film because most of it is in English – it’s a musical, remember!.

So if you’re thinking of going to the cinema this Christmas, why not seeing Les Mis? Take a look at the videos below and listen to one of the most famous songs from the musical, I dreamed a dream, performed by Anne Hathaway.
