Five 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.

In addition, look for our new book on teaching ELLs, which was published in the Spring of 2018 and learn about our next book.
Here are this week’s choices:
