Hello

Iím an ESL teacher in the USA and a friend emailed me something interesting today which is happening for ESL students (he asked me to pass it on Ė couldnít think of a better way of doing it than this!) Itís a new website called www.linguagum.com which sends students a sentence every day in their email. The email has a link to the website and you then download the dayís sentence Ė you can listen to it on your computer or put it on your iPod. This way you get to practice English in bite-sized chunks every day to improve vocab and pronunciation. I think itís a good idea because, as the site says, you donít have to make time to study Ė you can practice the sentence of the day anywhere at any time if you have an MP3 player. I signed up to see what it was all about and it looks pretty interesting. The quality is good and itís FREE at the moment. Apparently they are going to start charging for it some time in the future but according to the site itís going to be pretty cheap anyway - $1 a week, $3 a month or $30 a year. The siteís in English and Spanish at the moment but it would still work fine for speakers of any language. Anyway, I have done my good deed for the day letting you know about itÖ take a look and see what you think.

Hi,

I was wondering if your website will always be dedicated to the English language or if more languages will be added in the future. Thanks for your answer.
