The Virtual Language Centre comprises language learning activities for students of ESL/EFL and a "toolbox" of resources for teachers. It features concordancing with multimedia and dictionary referencing and text-to-speech options.
When I went through some materials, and the first thing that I thought was that they were very colorful and contained a lot of pictures that made grammar explanations and definition of vocabulary words easier to understand. I found the materials to be appropriate and effective especially for younger children because games, crosswords and so many other materials would not make even younger students bored. However, in some materials, I found Chinese translations. Of course, this page is posted by Hong Kong, so it is understandable, but because of this, some materials are not exactly appropriate for those who are not Chinese speakers.
I liked crossword puzzle best, because it was really easy to use! All you have to do is just choose the level of difficulty and type the words directly into the matrix. I'm sure that even younger students can do it without any problem. Also, they can tell you by color when you spell wrong. I liked this feature a lot!
