Title : Linguapress

Description :
The website 'Linguapress' provides a collection of freely accessible online resources for students and teachers of English as a foreign or second language. This collection draws significantly on materials included in Linguapress EFL newsmagazines, published between 1980 and 2001. However, the editors of the website aim to extend the resource and they welcome new submissions from teachers all over the world. The teaching and learning material is organised into four sections: Free advanced level EFL resources; Free intermediate level EFL resources; EFL word games and puzzles; A clear guide to English grammar. Each section includes a number of textual resources for direct use in the classroom. In the first two sections (advanced and intermediate), each resource consists of a text for reading, a glossary of words which may be unfamiliar to students, and a worksheet which can include a variety of exercises that help improve the use of grammar and vocabulary, writing and speaking skills. Thematically, texts for reading focus primarily on the British and American history and culture. The grammar pages offer explanations and examples of use for most taught areas of grammar. The puzzles and word games are organised both thematically and according to the level of language competence. In addition, there is page on the history of English, and advice on how to choose a language school in England. Although the site promises that ESL material is also available, the resources it provides seem to be focused mainly on EFL learning. This resource will be of use mainly to teachers, but also to students, of English as a foreign language.
