Quora

Quora is a website founded by two former Facebook employees (read more about that here) which has questions and answers about virtually any topic you can think of.

You must sign up to the site to be able to browse the questions and answers. You can sign up with an account from Google, Facebook or Twitter, or with an e-mail address.

The questions are answered by the public — people who believe they can best answer the questions. This is a great site for CRITICAL reading practice.

Here are a couple of examples:

As with other sites where you have a public profile, please keep your privacy in mind and think twice before sharing your full name and other information about yourself.
