British Website for Adult Learners and Tutors

This website http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/ has sections for adult readers on words and numbers and a section for tutors. You can find fact sheets, worksheets, and games to improve skills, there are adult learner stories to watch and listen to, quizzes to test progress, and a Tutor Centre (it is a British site!) with lesson plans and tracking sheets. There is a link to a site called "raw" in the bottom right corner - a website that helps adults develop skills for everyday life. In the Tutor Centre you will also find a link to this site, http://www.skillsworkshop.org/workshee.htm, which is full of free worksheets and handouts for adult basic skills students. The Tutor Centre also has a link to ESOL resources - your options are endless!

What do you like about this site? What did you use with your learner that you found helpful? Please share in the comments section of this post.
