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.
You might also be interested in THE BEST RESOURCES, ARTICLES & BLOG POSTS FOR TEACHERS OF ELLS IN 2019 – PART ONE and THE BEST RESOURCES, ARTICLES & BLOG POSTS FOR TEACHERS OF ELLS IN 2019 – PART TWO.
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:
Optilingo is a new site for learning multiple languages.
Here are a number of listening activities created by Cristina Cabal. I’m adding it to The Best Listening Sites For English Language Learners.
Tech Support in Many Languages is from Pamela Broussard. I’m adding it to THE BEST VIDEOS IN SPANISH TO HELP PARENTS & STUDENTS ACCESS TECH IN REMOTE LEARNING.
1 in 10 US students are English learners is from The Conversation.
Haneen Khaled’s framework for remote theatre – from the students’ perspective is from The Hands Up Project.
Agreed. Along with that, here's a "shout-at" schools and districts for not providing the multilingual assistance they SHOULD be providing to parents and their children https://t.co/GLr9F17eIB

– anything I summarize is in blue
– added a recording of the original text
– added diagram
– broke up the article into separate paragraphs
– each paragraph is a slide like this one pic.twitter.com/Cblxpbv7UG

NEW We talked to 3 of the new American citizens who were naturalized at the White House. Two said they were shocked to find that it was aired during the R.N.C. While they said they were honored “that doesn’t mean that I can’t criticize him." w/ @shearm https://t.co/t17o2L1d8Y

Download your slide presentation as a ppt. Go to https://t.co/F4h890ArAq and upload it as a document. Then translate into the language you want. All text on every slide will be translated.
