English for Life

I came across this website from the Goodwill Community Foundation that had an interesting way of presenting different life skills. It’s originally designed for people who need to practice reading in every day type situations, but I believe that many ESL learners could benefit from it, too.

The activities include using a grocery list at the supermarket, counting U.S. coins, and using bus/ subway maps. I believe these exercises would benefit adult learners that are trying to manage their daily lives in the U.S. Children might benefit from topics such as baking a cake or telling time.

Go and check it out for yourself and let me know what you think:
