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 2020.
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:
Scaffolding Writing for Language Learners is by Tan Huynh.
California bilingual programs ready to grow after slowing during pandemic is from Ed Source.
Timesaver: Conversation starters is from ELT Planning. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Developing English Conversational Skills.
Healthy Roads Media has quite a few multilingual resources related to health. I’m adding it to The Best health sites for English language learners.
