My Ideal Beach is an engaging and short interactive created by the Orbitz travel site.

In it, you’re asked a series of simple questions about the kinds of things you’re looking for in a vacation. You choose your answers — which show both images and words. In the end, you’re given a recommendation for a place that would supposedly provide what you’ve indicated. You’re also provided the url address for the recommended location.

This could be used as a simple vocabulary-building exercise for English Language Learners related to leisure where students then post their recommendation’s url address on their blog or website and explain why they think that was chosen for them. A little geography lesson could also be built in for students to identify the location on a map for their recommendations.

It’s obviously not something that would be a major class lesson, but might be something to slip in if you have some extra time in the computer lab.
