    Hello

    Could any of you recommend any online systems or games for learning English?

    Kind regards,

    Sharpie

    I have not used the internet much for teaching, but there are two sites I have used successfully. One is http://www.italki.com, which is a language-learning social media-type site that gets a lot of activity. One feature is "notebook entries"–you can write something in English (or whatever your target language is) and post it for English-speakers to correct and comment on. You can also find language exchange partners (Chinese-English, for instance). I have assigned italki notebook entries to students in the past, and also referred students looking for English-speaking conversation partners or pen-pals.

    Another is http://www.elllo.org, which has recordings of non-scripted dialogues in English, categorized by level, along with transcripts (and also quizzes, which I never used). This site is good, because the language is natural and the dialogues are much more interesting that the recorded dialogues in ESL textbooks.

    The website http://www.superenglishkid.com/ is a good resource. It has many downloadable Powerpoints that you can use to teach different games or activities. There are also a lot of songs on the website.
