Vocabulary Exercises for the AWL

 

This site now contains 285 gap-fill exercises to review and recycle the general word families contained within the AWL. These exercises can be found on each Sublist page. Gap-fill exercises are an excellent way to recycle vocabulary through different contexts and can be used to broaden the student's understanding of the range of meaning of vocabulary. The online format of the exercises allows students to get immediate feedback on their answers. Students can work throughfive different exercises for each word family in the AWL. Many of these exercises include different derivations (parts of speech) for the given word. Students are encouraged to complete the exercises for a given level before proceeding to the next level.

Advanced Composition for Non-Native Speakers of English

Advanced Composition for Non-Native Speakers of English | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

"This site provides instructions for writing essays in English for a US academic audience. This site also contains academic essays by ESL and EFL students writing in English for university level classes."

 

Shona Whyte:

Erlyn Baack, ESL writing instructor, ITESM, Quertaro Campus (Mexico) maintains the site http://eslbee.com on advanced composition for non-native speakers of English: advice, examples and exercises for academic writing for intermediate learners and beyond.

 

Here's a review by Jennifer Banton (University of Quebec, Montreal)

"Advanced Composition is a clean looking unified site. It is well planned and easy to follow. There is no advertising to clutter the pages, and all images are directly related to the sites' content and purpose. The audience is specified, and the stated goals are achieved. The author takes great care to cite secondary information, and he includes useful links to related sites. All of this sets a very much appreciated formal and academic tone. In comparison to other Online Writing Labs, Advanced Composition stands out as one of the few which offers higher order writing instruction, including university level sample writing."

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

Susan's curator insight, March 20, 2013 3:46 AM

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

Shona Whyte:

Suspicious as usual, I checked out this site.  Not clear who is behind it, but it does seem to be completely free and the sound etc works fine.  I checked English for French beginners (leçon de Anglaise (sic)) - behaviourist approach with exercises for listening and repeating, matching phrases with their translation equivalents, and chances to test yourself.  Not my first choice for learning a language, but it may suit some.

Learning English Online : Freiburg University of Education

Learning English Online : Freiburg University of Education | Learning technologies for EFL | Scoop.it

This new English language learning portal has been developed by a team at the Pädagogische Hochschule of Freiburg as a complement to the state of Baden-Würtemburg's school programmes (level A1-A2; there is also a German version of the site).

 

It offers a traditional language course (based on the imaginary family so beloved of school textbooks), then additional sections on the four language skills and  language areas (vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation), some cultural options plus two extra sections called "magazine" and "videos" with links to external websites like the BBC.

 

A lot of different sections and links to explore, and more material to come.  I'd be interested to hear opinions ...
