This website contains links to vocabulary and quizzes, interactive lessons, listening, reading, conversation questions, related links, and related topics.  Under the vocabulary and quizzes link you will find lists of words along with pictures that allow students time to study and then "quiz" their knowledge.  It also provides quizzes that can be submitted for immediate feedback.  The interactive lessons were fun little games with sound clips to listen to before answering questions by clicking on appropriate spots.  Not only were the games helpful and educational, they were fun as well!  Listening contains both a written and audio piece of dialogue as well as listening games that ask you to listen to a small portion of the audio before answering a question and moving on.  The reading link provides links to various reading pieces, some of which are organized by ability level, providing graphics and shortening paragraphs with easier language if you choose level one over level three.  Conversation questions provides just that: an easy way to guide conversation within the classroom about topic.  Related links will guide you away from the website to sources will useful information.  Related topics will keep you on the website but redirect you to a new topic with a similar set up for activities to use.  This site can be very helpful as it has good information and is very easy to use and navigate through!
