I had a good response from a list of websites for ESL students. You can see that list here.
So, I put together another list of 4 websites with lesson ideas that can help English students improve their writing, listening and reading skills.
I hope you find this list of 4 More Great ESL Sites useful and educational.
Want to know the difference between “I” and “me” when writing a sentence? Curious to learn if “ain’t” is a real word? Then you need to visit Grammar Girl, where grammar rules are explained in easy to understand English.
Tired of PowerPoint? Me, too. Want to write a more interesting presentation? Me, too.
So, stop complaining and sign up for a free account at Prezi. Here is a sample of what you can make. It is a presentation about how to write an essay. Move through the presentation by clicking forward arrow.
Notice how you can zoom in on words by scrolling your mouse? Cool.
Visit the world from the comfort of your computer. Geobeats has short clips showing viewers one unique aspect of a world city. Improve your listening skills and learn about world culture at the same time.
I just watched a clip about capsule hotels in Tokyo. It was a neat reminder of the time I stayed in a capsule hotel in Japan. Most videos seem to be produced by amateurs but the quality and impact are high quality.
A very different way to send email messages. The main page has a board and your choice of drawing tools. Type a message. Draw a picture. Send the picture and message to your friend.
It’s hard to describe just how cool Imagination Cubed is. Try it once and you might find yourself using this email tool more and more.
You can also save your message; a link will be sent to your email address so you can send the same message to any number of friends.
Enjoy these sites. Got any other ideas?
Don’t be shy. Write something in the comment box.
