Learning English through watching TED talks will help you to improve many skills such as listening, speaking, pronunciation, turn-taking, body language, facial expressions, gestures and cultural awareness.

These presentations often contain idioms, slang and colloquial phrases that are very common in everyday speech but are rarely taught in English textbooks. Each talk has an interactive transcript (subtitles) that you can while you listen to the presentation.
