CDLP – a wonderful adult listening site

CDLP – The California Distance Learning Project, is one of the many governmental sites leading the way towards free online learning resources.

It doesn’t have a lot of “flash” but it has an abundance of semi authentic materials with audio and extra vocabulary study. Excellent stuff that will interest students. Just choose a category and find audio / video and text. Students can return there after class for more practice. While the vocabulary study is just a mish mash of stuff, it does help. Note – this site is designed for adult learners.

I can see teachers copying the script and using this in class to design materials along with the great audio that supports it. You could even have students present an article every day and then design discussion activities for each.

A wonderful resource and along with USA Learns, the other American resource site for adult learners – makes me want to sing, “God Bless America”!
