For improving my english , i started reading stuff from different websites. Now the problem i faced was that the stuff was very boring. I didnt feel like reading the similar content again.
So i tried to find out what was my thing, what i love to read. Whatever i read , i used to get bored after sometime. Now thankfully , i have started reading stories online. One website : eShortStories.com , where there are many many categories to read from. I never get bored of reading stories of multiple genres.
Hope it helps you in improving English.
Happy Learning !!

You can find tons of resources for learning English just by googling "learn English." But here's one I'm kind of familiar with, namely BBC's program for learning English: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish

This one is for listening to Australian English: http://www.elllo.org/study/australia/english_2004.htm

This one is for learning Australian English through Chinese, Vietnamese, Khmer, or Indonesian (they also have some courses in Burmese): http://www.elllo.org/study/australia/english_2004.htm

I also encountered "Crossroads Café" for American English through a course for Dutch, where they instead used it for teaching Dutch. There are a few videos for it on YouTube, although it's kind of hard to find much from it, unfortunately.

Oh right, and there's Easy English from the Easy Languages YouTube channel. This is their first lesson, filmed in York, England:

This one has helped me when reading in English:

https://lexical.io

It has a ton of audio files and pretty good translations into German too, plus other languages I haven't tried.
