Welcome to EnglishNet, the EFL blog for Jaime Moniz students.

EnglishNet gives you access to English language and culture.

This is a place where you have the opportunity to learn, practise and improve your English in a different way.

It contains links to help you learn and improve your English grammar and your listening, reading and writing skills.

 You will also be able to participate and give opinions.

Let's start by finding some interesting and entertaining facts about the English language:

- there are more than 125 English dialects worldwide.

-  the most common vowel  in English is "e" and the most common consonant is "r" followed by "t". The letter "q" is the least used.

- the oldest word in the English language is "town".

-"invisibility" is the only word in the English language which has one vowel, but this vowel occurs  five times.

- "uncopyrightable" is the only English word that has 15 letters and that can be spelt without repeating a single one.

- "bookkeeper" is the only English word with three consecutive repeated letters.

- the word "typewriter" is the longest word you can write in English by only using the  keys on the    same row of your keyboard.

- "skiing" is the only English word with double  "i".

- "dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt".

- the words "racecar", "kayak" and "level" are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes).

That's all for now.
I hope you enjoy and get the most of this blog!

See you next time.
