Listen up!

This blog is the creation of an instructor at the Center For Immigrant Education and Training at La Guardia Community College . Students can find concise scripted English on topic like, taking an order from a customer, calling in late or sick to work, taking a reservation, or telephone basics. Real life and practical applications for adults learning English-as-a second-language who are gearing up to enter the workforce or find better employment
A very comprehensive blog detailing all things American. A wonderful resource for those giving civics instructions. Those applying for Citizenship will find a plethora of useful and fun facts on American history, cultural and customs. Patriotic song lyrics and links to YouTube renditions are a big hit with students.

The sheer variety of learning activities this blog offers makes it worth mentioning. There is much to sing and read along to , cloze excises and jokes galore. It offers short but well designed topics like health matters, American customs, personalities, weather and so much more. Students especially love the jazz chants. A wonderful blog one can recommend to students looking to bolster language production while having fun. Edutainment anyone?
