Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…

…For Teaching ELL, ESL, & EFL

My Best of series

265008453214183_a-8b76502c_W-fRUQ_pm

I’ve separated my “The Best…” lists here by topics. A number of the lists, though, can fit into multiple categories, so it still might be useful to scan all of them.

The Websites Of The Year page on this blog, on the other hand, has these lists in the chronological order in which they’ve been written. Please note that I continually update and revise all of the lists.

The Best Websites page on my website shows versions of these same lists that are designed for student self-access.

The best way to search is using “Control + F” on your keyboard.

I wondered if you might have a look at our site Gapfillers (www.gapfillers.co.uk) for more advanced English langauge learners. It’s a membership site and available on licence to schools, universities companies etc..but there is a free area to subscribe to as well.
    Thanks Berni

  12. Thanks Larry…you are correct, teachers in other countries cannot afford $85.00 a year for example that equals 2975 Thai Baht. As for teachers pay it ranges between 300 to 450 Baht per hour. So it would cost me about 10 hours or 3.5 days to pay for it. Most teacher just can’t swing it. I am married so I could but I spend my “supplementary money” on brainpop.com; for ESL / EFL teachers I get more bang for my Baht with brainpop.

    Thank you again Larry for the excellent resources.

  13. Since 1987, I have published 868 exemplary HS history research papers by students from 44 states and 35 other countries. I hope you will look at some samples of these essays on our website at: http://www.tcr.org
