beginning English exercises

intermediate and advanced English exercises

Greetings teachers of English as a second language (ESL),

The exercises above are designed primarily for use with literacy-level and beginning-level ESL classes, especially classes where many of the students have little or no experience with computers. The interface and the interactions are very simple, and the buttons are very large. My colleagues and I at the City College of San Francisco find that it's usually possible to get everyone in a large class working on their own after just a minute or so of demonstration.

You should note, however, that although the game-like element adds some excitement, the simplicity of these exercises makes them somewhat monotonous. I don't recommend that you plan to use them for an entire class hour. I usually find that 15 to 25 minutes is about right.

I hope you find these exercises useful. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or topic requests.
