Might be useful for very high level students or for theachers with language doubts. The site doesn't seem very active, though.

Frailasteros Vasadema's insight:

Ilaria_Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/learnoutlive/info the Fb page is only a window for the site http://learnoutlive.com/ that contains materials on language and audiobooks, some are sold, others are freely downnlable such as the audio books on English idioms (http://books.learnoutlive.com/free-audiobook-english-idioms-volume-ii/ ); those pages are under CC attribution 3.0. The site is also the place for a community of techers to gather and let us know about their theaching. So, this resource may be taken under consideration only for those materials OER, but it worth mentioning the same.

The collocation is therefore under the label "vocabulary".

The author specifies tha his work is under a CC license here http://wronghands1.wordpress.com/about/ , then he puts a copyright logo on his cartoons...weird ;-)

This is a useful resource, and directly within facebook.
Rossana Mandich's comment, May 19, 2013 5:25 AM
Useful, even if a little too technical for students. My students find it hard to use phonemic symbols.
