English Lessons

La Mano Amiga is developing a library of free, research-based English lessons for absolute beginners. Lessons build upon a video produced in direct English, and are supplemented with bilingual study guides. Learning takes place online at the learner’s own pace—orally, visually and with text.

English lessons are located in the Spanish-language portion of this site, at this link.
