I was looking for material for my basic ESL vocabulary class. I particularly was looking for something my students could review at home as supplemental material. This website is not what I had hoped for. The site is full of ads, making the actual material hard to read and understand. Plus, clicking on some of the buttons takes students to problematic sites that sell questionable products. The material on the site itself is useful, but I will have to use it in class or have students work on the site while in our computer lab time. Navigating the site is difficult for even me. The Listening and Speaking content is good with recorded conversations. There are multi-level materials in Speaking and Listening. Yet, none of the vocabulary is college level. The site links to other ESL sites, though these tend to be too elementary to be helpful. The writing examples are much too low level to be useful for my students.
