September 2021 – Tune is trending!

Dear Teacher,

I hope you had a relaxing Summer break and are ready for the new school year.

Tune Into English is the web’s biggest free resource for learning English through pop music, and in August reached a whole new audience. Thank you to all for supporting the website, and particularly to those who have signed up for the weekly exclusive content.


The Tune Into English Roadshow

It is still a time of uncertainty but I hope to be able to tour the Roadshow this year. In the meantime the online Game Show is now available for smaller groups. You can see three full shows as part of the Tune Into English subscription plans.
