The content can be easily used with students who are learning English; however, the teacher should be very thoughtful while selecting the information. I think very advanced learners will highly benefit from this content. I particularly liked the podcasts. Not only do they clarify the use of the words, but also, students can be exposed to good sources for history. In this way, students will expand their knowledge in the presented topics. The website is easy to navigate. However, fonts can be bigger and more vivid colors can be used.

Very useful site, for both English learners and native speakers. A search function would make this resource even more user-friendly.

Good material, I think I'll use it with my students. Helpful since students can realize mistakes they make.

A nice page for language learners. One may find interesting things about the language even if he's not looking for answers to his questions.

I found the list of errors to be quite extensive.  The accompanying explanation is helpful.  I can see how this reference can be used in an assignment for students to improve their usage.
