The strength of the site is the vast quantity and diversity of resources for a variety of languages that include, to name only a few, realia, curriculum units, links to technology for teaching languages, and proficiency guidelines. Users will need to consider accessibility for some materials such as videos. While described as geared for K-12 learners, some resources would be relevant to post-secondary language learners as well. I especially like the resources that use music for teaching and links to lyrics that can take a lot of time to develop. Don't overlook the Workshop Materials link as that area houses some of the most versatile and interesting resources, especially with regard to culture,
