Two years ago I began this regular feature where I share a few posts and resources from around the Web related to ESL/EFL or to language in general that have caught my attention:
Education Week Spotlight On English Language Learners is a free download of several useful articles about ELLs.
What Would a World Without Language Barriers Look Like? is an Atlantic article about Skype’s new “instant” translator, which I’ve written about previously.
Just Google It is a list and description of fun Google-related games. It’s from Elt-Cation. I’m adding it to The Best Ideas For Using Games In The ESL/EFL/ELL Classroom.
Games for the language classroom: Blockbusters is by Adam Simpson. I’m adding it to the same list.
David Petrie: Adapting your coursebook is from The British Council. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Adapting Your Textbook So It Doesn’t Bore Students To Death.
