ELT WEBSITE LINKS
I hope this ‘clickable’ list will be a good starting point for accessing some of the mass of ELT material available on the Web. It lists sources I myself have found useful.
As is the way with the Web, many of these sites will then point you on to other useful material!
General ELT websites (links etc.)
All the sites below contain a range of useful ELT stuff – most have worthwhile links lists, and some have valuable material of their own.
http://www1.doshisha.ac.jp/~kkitao/- and see particularly
All the sites in this section are worth looking at, but I particularly like this site which Kenji and Katherine Kitao have put together – should be a bookmark/favourite for anyone involved with teaching English, I think

Another good links site, based in Japan.http://www.wfi.fr/volterre/teacher.html (for teachers) and
Good links - and see http://www.wfi.fr/volterre/inetpro.html for ELT-related Internet projects.
A nicely-presented and well-organised ELT ‘portal’ site from the UK.
Worth browsing among these links (provided by Yahoo).
"The Internet's Meeting Place for ESL/EFL Students and Teachers from Around the World!" Dave Sperling’s ESL Café has become widely known. Materials, teachers’ and students’ forums, etc.

A really useful vocabulary level checker from Canada, based on wordlists developed in New Zealand – cut and paste in your text, and the checker will analyse it.http://www.lextutor.ca/concordancers/
Guide to grammar and style
Jack Lynch's unstuffy and (mostly) very sensible guide to English style.
The Sounds of American English, from the University of Iowa. Just as the name suggests: phonetic introduction to the sounds of (standard-midwestern) American English. Great for pronunciation help for students or clients who consistently have trouble with a certain sound. Thanks to Ann Hendrickshttp://www.antimoon.com/how/pronunc-soundsipa.htm
A very useful site maintained by Glenn Fulcher, a well-known language testing expert. Includes streaming video interviews with various testing gurus (Vivo or Real Player).
