BBC “Famous People” Site Revamped


The BBC recently revamped their excellent “Famous People” feature that provides accessible simple biographies of historical figures.

Their old site, which is is still “live,” is more accessible to English Language Learners with audio support for the text. Their new site, though it has more information and adds more historical figures, does not provide audio support.

I’m adding both to The Best Resources For Researching & Writing Biographies.
