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.

In addition, look for our new book on teaching ELLs, which was published in the Spring of 2018 and learn about our next book. PLUS, we’ve just submitted the manuscript for the second edition of The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide! That book will be out in early 2022.

Interplay Mode: Making videos interactive with AI is from Google. Their experimental videos, which include student practice, would be amazing if and when they bring them to scale.
Accommodating ELLs is from The Gaming Grammarian. You might also be interested in TEACHERS MIGHT FIND THIS LIST OF ELL ACCOMMODATIONS USEFUL…. I’m adding it to THE BEST COLLECTIONS OF INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES FOR ELLS – HELP ME FIND MORE!
ZenGengo looks like a potentially useful language-teaching/learning tool for teachers and students. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress and to The Best Sites For Learning Spanish Online.
