One of the basic strategies ESL teachers abroad soon learn, unless they like doing things the hard way all the time, is where the best online teaching resources are (and how to use them).

I think one of the challenges for teachers finding effective tools is 'finding tools that resemble something the students already like to do'. And what are the kids doing now: It's social media. That's why I think this tool that I found a few days ago is so cool and I plan in integrating it into the website I'm setting up. I've got my domain and everything: http://wanderingsalsero.gfriend.com . I was introduced to the owner of the company by a fellow I used to do some writing for and I'll be talking to him tonight to get more information about their planned expansion of the modules on the site but, considering it's all free anyway, even what they've got right now is very valuable.

As I delve more and more into online ESL resources I have yet to see anything that compares to the gFriend concept. Not only does it address the immediate needs a the larger number of students (i.e. free, basic, and easily accessible) but it's just plan fun. The people I've given the site access to all say they love it. They're available here:
