Language Learning and the Internet
Posted 04/02/2014 02:05PM
An introduction to a selection of websites helpful to English language learners.


In my article today, I want to take advantage of the opportunity to introduce a selection of some of my favorite vocabulary and reading support sites. First of all, there are the sites that extend language by introducing and giving the opportunity to practice vocabulary. Many of them are not only of interest to English language learners, but they are also wonderful sites that assist students in their preparation for the SAT and other college level exams. In addition to these sites, there are reading sites that help students to access texts, websites, and newspaper articles in a great variety of languages.




These web sites are great vocabulary builders that help students to improve their reading comprehension and writing skills. Many have visuals, videos and recordings that assist language acquisition.




These website have different texts on a variety of topics.


Building vocabulary is a key to building other language skills such as reading and writing. Language learning begins with words.
