Comment: I only did for about ten minutes looking at ESL specific area. I have come to
this site before for writing resume for more advanced students. That was more
general area. It was really obvious from the beginning this was a good

ESL handouts materials are the ones that we should all have, but don't always
have access to. In my school, schools supply textbooks and they don't have too
much reference materials in that particular book. The school can't afford to
buy better books with more meat. Ironic, but reality. So this is collection of
handouts is immensely valuable.

Materials seem to be picked according to the needs of ESL classes. ABE (Adult
and Basic Education) programs normally are run with slim budget, any teacher and
any program can have more suppliment materials. I try to organize a class by
theme and when the need arises for grammar or specific points in details, the
materials presented here work really well.

Technical Remarks:

I like the simple interface and JavaScript menu works well. On top of reference
materials, there are exercises to accompany. They also supply printer friendly
HTML version and PDF to download and print. That is nice.
