Welcome to the ESOL LibGuide!
We hope that this guide will help you to find research articles, reference books, and websites (for more information on each, click on the above tabs) for use in your classes or personal interests. We have highlighted resources that are good for ESOL students and we have provided tips to make using library materials a little easier for non-native English speakers. Please contact a librarian (information to the right) if you need further help.
Opposing Viewpoints In Context is a great database to find a variety of information (reference sources, newspaper articles, academic journal articles) on contemporary issues with one easy search - and each article is labelled according to reading level. Using the advanced search, you can limit items by either content level or lexile reading level.
Flexibility in English
When is a noun not a noun? And is improper agreement really like wearing plaid with stripes? Part one of this program summarizes the parts of speech and then looks at the ways in which one part of speech can be used syntactically as another. In part two, tiny animated dancers and other helpers provide examples of errors in subject/verb agreement and article/noun agreement. Idiom is also addressed. (28 minutes)
