5 Minute English is a site designed to give the learners short and easy explanations and exercises.

The learners can have a quick look at grammar, reading, listening, vocabulary and idioms. They can also find answers to questions that can be confusing for other learners. This is under the Question and Answer section.

If a student spends 5 minutes a day here regularly during the summer, he will benefit a lot.

News in Levels  is another great site that teachers can recommend their enthusiastic students to study English during the long summer holiday.

There are short news articles for different levels. The student can choose her level and read the news and listen to it. She then can try the other levels for the same article. The words in the original news have been changed and adapted to 3 levels. The vocabulary definitions are also given.

I just came across with ETTC a site where the students can try writing poems on their own. The site allows the users 

You can recommend Twenty Great American Short Stories 

They will find 20 short stories written by Kate Chopin, Edgar Allen Poe, O’Henry, Jack London and many more. They can read one or two story a week and keep a reader’s response journal.

If you have really enthusiastic kids, instead of reading only 20 American short stories, they can choose a wider selection from Classic Shorts . I’m sure you will also like this site.

Lyrics Training  is another site they can visit daily. They can listen to the songs and try to fill in the gaps according to their level.
