When I read the title "Academic English" I thought about materials to develop academic skills such as summarizing, presenting and note-taking, but what I find is grammar and pronunciation exercises which obviously help improve academic language skills. Regarding grammar, I see these exercises are useful to learn specific grammar structures (ex. demonstrative adjectives). About pronunciation exercises, I was not able to listen to the audios. I am not sure if it is working. This happened to me with several exercises (ex. dictation, matching the image to audio). I like activities such as "the rhythm of English" in which students have to record their voice and follow the speaker's rhythm and speed. Also, the website provides good tutorials for the use of Hot Potatoes and other tools to design exercises.
