DailyESL.com: Listening, Discussion, and Reading Activities to Help ESL/EFL Students Learn English
Randall Davis, at ESL-LAB.COM, has created another listening Website, www.dailyesl.com, for ESL/EFL students to help them understand everyday English in everyday situations like shopping, taking a bus, and visiting a doctor.
Thus, Daily ESL is designed to help learners become familiar with common vocabulary and expressions they can use all the time in many situations. Each activity includes the following:
1. Short reading on a high-frequency topic found in everyday situations.
2. An audio file in Windows Media format which followings the transcript of the reading.
3. Vocabulary activities to reinforce and review key vocabulary in the reading.
4. Discussion questions used to encourage critical-thinking skills.
The site is completely free, and Randall encourages teachers to use the site to supplement their classroom instruction. Learners using the site on their own will find the site useful for their independent learning.
Visit Randall's other sites, including http://www.www.ezslang.com and http://www.www.trainyouraccent.com, for more language practice.
