Six 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.

I agree it’s a great tool for ELL assessment I do have one major disappointment with @edpuzzle , however – they don’t provide the ability for listeners to adjust the speed of the video. That’s a big problem for English Language Learner instruction.
