Start a Business

Hot Shot Business is a site from Disney that has students simulate starting various businesses.  It has good animation (from Disney, what else would you expect?) and provides text with audio support that makes it accessible to English Language Learners.

I think it provides some good education on economics issues, and my students have enjoyed using it.

I’ve put the link on my English Themes for Beginners and Early Intermediate page under the Economics category.

(I had a slight problem with yesterday’s post, Ford Foundation Report.  As a result, some, but I don’t think all, RSS readers and email subscribers received it.  If you didn’t, just click on the link.)

  1. Hi Larry. I finally wrote an entry for the 8 Random Things meme that you tagged me for a week or two ago. Sorry it took so long. I like memes, but I was caught up in a few other things. Hope it won’t stop you from tagging me next time.

    Hot Shot Business is a cool concept. Wish I were better with budgets. Yes, Disney does things well–although I’m disappointed with California Adventures. The only cool ride on the new side is Soaring Over California, which is beyond awesome. Even my teenager liked it. Now, that’s amazing cuz it’s sort of an adult ride.
