Beginning Levels:


Janis' ESL HomePage

This is a great site for very low levels.  The site is organized by topics, such as "Jobs" or "Clothing".  When you click on each topic, you are taken to about twenty more links, some of which are vocabulary review/pronunciation sites, some are vocab. quizzes, and a few are listening.  It is quite good for having students review vocabulary covered in class.


ESL Flash Cards

There are tons of basic vocabulary and holiday flashcards that are free to print. Great for beginner vocabulary and grammar games.


Language guide

This is a beginner visual vocabulary guide. You choose the topic (i.e. fruits), and picturers pop up. You listen to the pronunciation as you roll over the word. Great for beginners. 

Henry Resource page

This site is out of France, but has the most wonderful set of links arranged alphabetically by topic. Each topic has links from a wide variety of sources from powerpoints to videos to handouts.
