YouTube is an AMAZING tool for language learners! YouTube combines visuals and audio to really stimulate the senses. Much more entertaining than the standard old grammar book!
Search for videos about things that interest you. If you are interested in cooking, watch some videos about cooking in English. Check out different accents from around the world– it can be really fun (even for native speakers)! Search for keywords: ESL, Learn English, British English, Grammar, English Pronunciation
Spend sometime and find the channels that you like.
When you find a channel that you really like, click on subscribe.
Every time you are on your YouTube homepage, videos from the channels that you subscribe to will be featured.
#3 USE IT
As with learning anything, practice makes perfect. The more you hear English, the more you are going to understand it. Listen to a video and repeat what you hear. Try to mimic the sounds that you are hearing perfectly. I tell my students to repeat what they hear and look in the mirror.
EVERYDAY set some time aside for YouTube. Your English is not going to magically improve overnight. It takes time and practice– but using a tool like YouTube can make it fun and interesting. The best part about YouTube is that you learn other things while you are improving your English (like how to make a chocolate cake!)
Beginner tip! If you are a beginner, search for videos in your native language and turn on English subtitles. Try this out and then move on to videos with English audio and English subtitles.

Rachel’s English: to improve English pronunciation.
EngVid teachers: even though I mostly find them a little basic for my level I can always learn something.
