ESL websites

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Recently I found out that some ESL web sites are really interesting and useful for me. To tell the truth, at first I did not pay much attention to those web sites designed by native speakers in English. This is because I believed in some celebrated Japanese experts who are acquainted with theories for SLA (Second Language Acquisition) and/or TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) with due consideration for difficulties to learn a different language like English for Japanese. That is, I thought that it was a better strategy for foreigners to study the second language in the way the foreign experts mastered it than in the way native experts did it.

It seems, however, that some ESL web sites provide truly valuable and practical materials for every English learner, including very actual speeches to which foreigners, like us, need to be exposed.

I will write down some links to those sites:
