I teach international students who are planning on applying to American colleges and universities. My biggest problem with ESL materials is that they can often seem so elementary in subject matter, so this site is more relevant to my students. There are no real materials on the site, but there are plenty of answers and examples. The sentences use basic language but the topics are more relevant to college students. I am confident that my students could find answers to any of their questions about how a verb is made past or progressive, how an unusual noun is made plural, or an adjective made superlative. This site is more of a resource than an activity site, but it could certainly be part of my students' box of tools when they are studying.

This is a collection of ESL Student Resource websites for teachers of English as a second language, including material for listening, reading, speaking, writing, grammar, and vocabulary, with a separate section devoted to interactive quizzes and proficiency tests, as well as a large variety of reference materials.  A few of the links are not operational, but with the abundance of materials you should certainly find something worth using.  While an advanced student could probably navigate the site, I would not recommend it to the non-native speaking student because of its large amount of text used throughout.

Technical Remarks:

I opened the site up directly from my browser window (Safari) and all the links (except those that weren't working) opened up just fine.

Time spent reviewing site: 1 hour
