| 0 comments

I have periodically shared links to lessons on using art as a language-learning activity, and have published some of my own. I thought it would be useful to start compiling them here, and to invite readers to contribute what I hope are a whole lot more.

I’m excluding music lessons from this list since I have several separate ones for them:

A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists For Sites Where ELL’s Can Create Art
The Best Music Websites For Learning English
The Best Online Sites For Creating Music
The Best Online Karaoke Sites For English Language Learners
Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Music Sites
