Great infographics for English language teachers | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

Are your students struggling with some of the rules of English language? Then, you should recommend them to visit this website. They will find great infographics there which may help them to understand the language. The only problem is that the site is American and the rules may not always be appropriate for British English.

Adam Heckler writes:

" The worst part about it is that the technology world moves so fast and changes so rapidly that the jargon and slang is extremely hard to keep up with, even for people who try to pay close attention.

So today I thought I’d bring you a mini-encyclopedia or mini-dictionary of sorts, where I’ll lay out some of the more confusing technology terms that educators will encounter on a regular basis. I’ll do my best to explain them as well, so you can at least sound knowledgeable if you are, say, stuck in a conversation with someone who knows a lot about technology. Here we go!..."
