Online activities for ESOL students
Here's a few of my favourite sites that I direct my ESOL students to when I'm having tutorials or needing to preprare smaller numbers for resit exams. I am fortunate enough to have access to an open access area where I can book computers. I also published this list on the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) at work.
Please feel free to copy and paste this list if you think it will be useful for your students.
