The English Times is an independent net magazine designed to help you improve your personal, social, and business English.

To make reading easier, Oxford English and Talking Technologies have included on-line meaning, pronunciation, and grammar help in pop-ups. If you do not know how pop-ups work, use the help link on this page.

It's been created to add enjoyment to the business of learning English, and support any personal, internet, or company training programme. If you're interested, you'll learn.

We're not a daily newspaper, so things that happened last night won't be here. But we do have a wide range of topics so that, whatever your interest, you'll find interesting things to read.


Although the page content is checked carefully, it is quite impossible for us to be sure that every detail is correct. So no responsibility can be accepted for any omissions or mistakes, or damage or loss resulting from them. By accepting the magazine, you have agreed to accept it as you find it, and that any disputes will be resolved under English law, in England.


It is quite impossible for us to check every advertised product or service. So no responsibility can be accepted for any omissions or mistakes, or damage or loss resulting from them.

The pages may express some lifestyle views and values which are different from your own. Remember, they have been chosen to represent world news and help you to learn English, and do not necessarily represent the ideas, thoughts, or feelings of anyone connected with The English Times.


The English Times only exists on the internet, as englishtimes.net. It is not part of, nor belongs to, any other magazine, newspaper, or newsletter which contains the word ‘times’ in its name.


The English Times is owned by Talking Technologies International Limited, a privately owned limited company, specialising in speech technologies, interface design, data presentation, and internet realisation.

The English Times is produced by Talking Technologies and Oxford English. Oxford English is the English Language Development Programme, an independent non profit-making organisation guided by a charter of declarations and an Academic Advisory Council drawn from Universities both in Britain and abroad.

The ELDP organises Research Teaching Projects and provides English Language Courses. The ELDP is associated with European and International University Project Groups, and was accredited by The University of Oxford Local Examination Delegacy in 1976, and now stands alone as the Euroversity Facility. It provides professional development programmes for universities, corporations, and professional organisations within the European Community.

Oxford English is not a college, a school, or a university, but a professional development programme; a service available to all types of organisation. It operates as an educational non profit making trust and is seeking incorporation under that identity.
