YOUTUBE VIDEO LESSONS MAINLY FOR IMGs

Pick one and then choose another when you’re done.  Don’t try following them all at once!  It’s too much.

 

If you have files you would like me to host on here and share with others, please email them to me.  [email protected]

This page is not just for IMGs!

I’ve created this page because there are so many trainees born and educated in the UK who get to medical school and pass, yet their written English often requires improvement.   And if you’re going to be writing articles, projects or papers for publication, then you really ought to brush up in this area.   Others may be international medical graduates who want help with their writing.  This page will serve both those born and educated in the UK and those born and educated outside. So what perfect opportunity to do it during your GP training years.   

In the “Downloads” section above, you will find useful resources helping you with…

  • English sentence construction
  • Grammar
  • English spelling
  • Punctuation
The videos are more for International Medical Graduates.

YouTube Video Lessons for IMGs

There are so many English Teachers on YouTube and below are some of my favourites.  Please do have a look at their complete video playlists because it’s not just the English Language and its grammar that you need to know about.  You Also need to get familiar with British culture, which in places, will be vastly different from your own.

Please leave a comment if you have a tip, spot an error, spot something missing or have a suggestion for a web resource.
And of course, if you have developed a resource of your own, please email it to me to share with others.
