I’ve compiled several “The Best…” lists on various U.S. cities, including ones on New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco. I also have one on California.

Since many of our students, particularly my Spanish-speaking English Language Learners, visit Los Angeles frequently, I thought it might be useful to put together a quick list of accessible sites for leaning about L.A.

Here are my choices for The Best Sites To Learn About Los Angeles (and are accessible to ELL’s):

EL Civics has a Los Angeles Photo Tour and Lesson.

Lingual Net has a video “Los Angeles: My City” designed for ELL’s.

Los Angeles: Portrait Of A City is a TIME Magazine slideshow.

Los Angeles: 10 Things to Do in 24 Hours is a slideshow and article from TIME Magazine.

FACT Monster has some relatively accessible text giving basic information about the city.

Watch L.A. sprawl develop:
