ELI Computer Lab Class: Week 3 – Quizlet.com

Today’s post is about Quizlet!

Quizlet.com is a free website which helps learners to study. I’ve written about it previously.

Over the years, many Quizlet sets have been created by ELI teachers. See them below!

Not every Quizlet set listed below is relevant for every semester. For example, in one semester, we might teach the odd chapters of a book (1, 3, 5, etc), and in the next, we might teach the even chapters (2, 4, 6, etc). However, in the list below, you can often find all chapters: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.

If you have questions about which Quizlet sets relate to your current ELI curriculum, you can ask your teacher.

Enjoy!

ELI Computer Lab Class: Week 2 – typing.com

Today’s post is about typing.com!

An exercise on typing.com
An exercise on typing.com

As its name suggests, typing.com is a website which helps you learn how to type properly on a US English keyboard. The website is free, and it offers a few dozen sequential tutorials that guide you from the most basic beginner-level practice (F, J, and Space) up to advanced-level full-keyboard speed and accuracy drills. Students can create accounts to track their progress and earn achievement badges.

Typing is an important skill for ESL/EFL students due to the amount of typed work they may be expected to produce in classes as well as their later careers. It’s also a necessary skill to enable students to confidently tackle standardized exams (such as the TOEFL and GRE) which require that students type original compositions under time pressure.
