Western/Pacific Literacy Network: Learning Resources
http://literacynet.org/cnnsf/
Learning Resources presents interesting adult literacy material in a way that is useful for multi-level literacy groups. Working independently or with an instructor, ESOL and literacy learners are supported reading stories from CNNís San Francisco Bureau. Each story is presented in outline form, abridged form and the full text. The ability to listen to the text enhances the story and allows supported reading. Abundant interactive comprehension activities are easy to use and provide challenging work for more advanced learners. The comprehension activity, "Your Turn", allows students to respond to a question concerning the story. Learners use e-mail to submit answers that are then posted. The questions also lend themselves to class discussion and writing. The site is easy to use so the learner can work independently. Instructors can incorporate stories into lessons and can use the categories listed in the archives to work thematically.

Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab
http://www.esl-lab.com/
This site provides learners with listening quizzes they can do online. Navigating between pre-listening, listening, and post-listening activities may be initially confusing for some. However, once familiar with this, the plain format is easy to navigate. While instructors may incorporate this into a lesson, it is generally better suited for independent study. There are general listening quizzes, academic listening quizzes, long conversations and short listening exercises all separated according to level of difficulty. The passages are relevant, authentic and often humorous. The wide variety of listening activities is a huge benefit.
