I’ve been asked to write a guest “post” each month on the Learning With Computers blog about the topic of the month. Learning with Computers is a group of ESL teachers who are experimenting with the use of technology in the classroom.
Last month the focus was on grammar, and I thought I’d share what I wrote there with readers of this blog.
There are a ton of sites that focus on grammar. Many of them are mind-numbing lists of exercises and are almost as bad as the useless grammar worksheets that many textbook publishers put out.
Today I’d like to highlight two sites that I think are the best, especially for beginner English Language Learners. They stand-out for both providing text with audio support, and also provide a variety of different activities. My high school students here in Sacramento, California, seem to like them, too.
One is Grammarman Comics, which teaches grammar through the use of attractive online………comics.
The other is Grammar Gold, which provides a series of fun exercises that teach and provide opportunities to practice English grammar.
For more grammar sites accessible to Beginner students, you can go to the Grammar section on my website’s Beginner’s page.
For grammar sites appropriate for Intermediate or Advanced English Language Learners, check-out the Intermediate Grammar category on my webpage.
I hope these are helpful links.
