Yet Another Collection of Online ESL Resources

Yes, you might think you know everything about ESL, but I have found yet another (nearly) comprehensive ESL related website. Yes, I know, there a lots of websites out there, some are private and some are related to universities or agencies. Here's one that...

...is sponsored by CATESOL, otherwise known as California Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages.

Among their links related to professional associations and organizations, you will find TESOL - http://www.tesol.org/s_tesol/index.asp, a site dedicated to Canadian teachers of second languages - http://www.caslt.org/ and JALT -
The Japan Association for Language Teaching http://jalt.org/.

If you like games to help with language learning, take a look at - http://www.mes-english.com/.

If you know of anyone preparing for the standardized English language exams, you know, the usual TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, CPE, CAE, FCE, PET, KET or a few others, be sure to look at - http://www.examenglish.com/default.php. Yes, it is all free.

For some enjoyable listening, and to sharpen those listening skills in your students, take a look at Short Story Radio - http://www.shortstoryradio.com/index.htm.

And, just in case you, or someone you know, might be looking for an ESL related job, try ESLjobfeed.com at - http://www.esljobfeed.com/. It is a aggregator of ESL job search sites, and though some might be better and more user friendly (like ESLEmployment), ESL jobfeed.com skims and compiles a massive listing.

There's a wealth of resources on the internet. Let me know of any of your favorite sites.

It is good to remember that we are all always learning. And it is always more fun to learn together.

Let me know what it is about English that you find confounding, infuriating or endlessly intriguing.

Listen, read and speak. Make your new language your own.

My best to you as you make your way through this intriguing , constantly shifting linguistic landscape.
