Welcome to our "English for new immigrants" section. We have created this section for newcomers to an English-speaking country to be able to practice English related to things you might have to do every day. The new English vocabulary you learn will help you integrate into society, and make life in your new country easier. Most of these questions use our patented approach, which combines both grammar and vocabulary training, and spans a range of levels from low-intermediate to low-advanced.
