We´ve barely started the topic and we already have a long list of suggested sites in our WIKI. Wow, it´s sure overwhelming! We´ll try to organize a list of special features from some of the sites in order to guide us through this discovery.
Let´s start with ELLO, my favourite. It offers interesting activities I haven´t found anywhere else, for instance:
- Interviews : The interviews integrate image which is known to help understanding.
- Mixer: Six different people talk about the same topic. It also offers comprehension questions at the end.
- News game: A news programme in cartoons.Great for beginner levels!

- Beginners Dictations

Manythings.org is also interesting.

Let´s leave our impressions in the comments area.
Larry Ferlazzo´s blog is amazing. These are some of the sites I selected from his suggestions.
LISTENING DICTATION (movie sounds and clips) (really good!)
Listening to different speakers This is from Tokyo International University and has faculty members talking about themselves, followed by questions that need to be answered by students.(very good!)
ESL VIDEOS is incredible. Not only does it offer video with quizzes at various levels but also offers us the opportunity to create quizzes for videos of our choice.
