It looks like you might have been referring to the ESL activities, but if you were also giving feedback about Pest PI, thanks! I am glad you enjoyed it if you were able to play it!

It's small in comparison to the giants listed above, but I think it's the only EFL site with comics specifically for English students.

I think this is a great website. There are comics for beginners, e.g. five little monkeys, and comics for intermediate and advanced learners. The themes of the comics cater to different reader interests, for example there is one on Justin Biber, Marvel Comics and Classics, like Romeo and Juliet. The comics called “grammarman” focus on a specific grammar topic. Therefore the students get the opportunity to notice language forms. (plus comic templates) In addition there is a section with Podcasts including worksheets to use them, words of the day, games and much more. I was very impressed with the high quality of the website.

A good way for pupils to interact with the web is to use a site like

They can create mind maps, flash cards, quizzes and other notes online and share them with each other.

Some teachers in my school are starting to use it. The mind map feature is really cool. 8)

Websites for ELLs

One great website I would highly suggest for all educators is where students create their own stories, and can also view others' stories, while recording their voices to narrate the story page, after page. It is great for allowing ELLs to practice their English without the emotional toll of speaking in front of the class.

This is a great site where you can download a lot of pre-made templates for koosh ball, jeopardy, wheel of fortune, etc. All you have to do is download it and put your questions/information in it. You do not have to have a SMART Board to use it! Just a projector do the kids can see it :)
