Longman.com is rapidly
expanding its online offerings for ESL teachers (and students).
Currently, there are sample units, worksheets and companion
Web sites for most of their Azar texts, Focus on Grammar
and Grammar Express, in addition to a good collection of
links to other sites and ESL newsletters. The Grammar
Express companion Web site offers interactive online
multiple-choice quizzes for students to test themselves
on every major grammar point covered in the entire text.
There are a total of 30 quizzes, each with 15 questions,
and students receive their score immediately, along with
explanations for the questions they have missed. Other
new areas of the Longman site include activities and
vocabulary lists to accompany the NorthStar series as
well as materials for the Idiom Adventure text.
If you are looking for online resources to help you
reflect on and improve your teaching, here are three
topic digests recently released by the ERIC Clearinghouse:
Discourse Analysis for Language Teachers
Integrated Skills in the ESL/EFL Classroom
Language Teaching Methodology
