    Best resources for distance learning?

    Good afternoon, I am a language enthusiast seeking recommendations on which shows/podcasts etc. to watch or listen to in order to
    further improve vocabulary and language skills. I have been tuning in to critically-acclaimed radio and TV shows for quite some time now but could use your input on what to try next. Anything that involves educational programming is welcome but please list American English resources only.

    I appreciate the effort.

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.
    Vocabulary.com is an excellent resource that can help you expand your vocabulary.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: Best resources for distance learning?

    Thank your for the warm welcome, Boris.

    The reason why I explicitly state TV/radio ( in other words spoken English ) is that I want to practice conversational English. I have the reading department covered and it does help but the nuts and bolts of English do not come from books or magazines. It's like building a house of cards because there's no foundation to fall back to when you're in doubt. I'm sure you understand.
