Teaching English as a Second Language: Web Sites

by Judith Maginnis Kuster - Minnesota State University, Mankato (kuster@mnsu.edu).

Internet sites designed to assist teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) provide a vast array of materials that can be adapted for many different client needs. There are literally hundreds of ESL web pages to explore. Many good sites are linked in "webliographies" -- sites that link to other web pages, such as Ohio University's Resources for English language and culture, Dave Sperling's ESL Cafe which has over 3000 links, Rong-Chang Li's ESL Site and Frizzy University Network. An exploration of such resources will lead you to many excellent materials. Visit these sites and discover ways your students/clients may benefit from them.
