What is your favorite English Training program?
I would like to hear from some people that have used software programs to help learn English. Which programs did you use and what were the advantages and disadvantages?
AMERICAN ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION (American English Pronunciation Practice (For ESL/EFL)) Very simple; spoken pairings of similar words; game-like
CAMBRIDGE INTERCHANGE ARCADE (Interchange Arcade 4th Edition--Cambridge University Press) Simple program, but must use workbooks
VOICE OF AMERICA (VOA - Voice of America English News - VOA News) Daily news and current events; hear, read along, exercises in vocab, grammar
Good link resources. Actually I'm doing volunteer tutoring with ESL kids in an after school program.
I think your links are really good !!!
I will add also one great online software for American English pronunciation - Saundz...
Saundz is an innovative curriculum based educational software program that helps non-native speakers of American English (1) learn in a step-by-step manner each of the 40 sounds of American English, (2) practice their pronunciation at anytime via the Internet , and (3) quickly improve their pronunciation skills and reduce their accent.
I use a lot of English and content based worksheets from around the internet and also hands on games that I've developed through trial and error over my teaching years. The ones I love the best and go back to are from Jumpstart, a website that provides free educational resources for teachers. They are illustrated in a way that makes the kids not dread doing their course work or learning. I would also recommend any mini game that has instructions in English. I have found that kids who use computers for games or even just browsing have a higher English acquisition rate.
