These are a few of our favourite things:

In class the other day I asked for students to tell me which online activities they had especially enjoyed or found useful. We made a list on the board, and it includes:

  1. www.jabberwacky.com - for practising chatter in a safe but unusual environment
  2. www.flickr.com - for practising making comments quickly about beautiful subjects
  3. http://www.manythings.org/ for all sorts of activities, especially grammar
  4. www.blogger.com for reflective writing and developing a voice
  5. www.newszealand.blogspot.com for bite-sized pieces of NZ news
  6. http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/ for a variety of British-English audio-visual materials
  7. http://www.cdlponline.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=homepage for a high quality listening and reading site

There were more - and I've left spaces - but my pen wasn't swift enough. As with many posts, this is a working project. To be continued.
