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.
You might also be interested in The Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of ELLs In 2015 – So Far and The Best Websites For English Language Learner Students In 2015 – So Far.
Here are this week’s choices:
English Worksheets Land has a lot of free decent worksheets suitable for English reinforcement. You don’t have to register before gaining access to them. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Free ESL/EFL Hand-Outs & Worksheets.
Test Your Vocab is an online tool where learners can get a rough estimate of how many words they know in English. I think it could be a useful tool for students to periodically use to measure their progress and get re-energized when they see how much they’re making. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where ELL’s Can Learn Vocabulary. I discovered it through Nina English’s blog, which I learned about through David Deubelbeiss, founder of the great EFL Classroom 2.0.
Wendi Pillars shares what online tools she found helpful, and which ones weren’t, during her year of teaching high school English Language Learners.
