I love TED for many reasons. I’ll name just a couple here:
First, it’s an endless source of awesome information, research and discoveries.
Second, it is a wonderful and very effective learning tool.
So, if you want to practice your skills, expand your vocabulary, increase your cultural awareness and just find out what cool things people are doing, making and creating around the world, you should add TED to your resources list (if you haven’t already). If you are preparing for IELTS or TOEFL, you will definitely benefit. And, if you are curious like me, you will enjoy it even more.
